Hi Kitcheners!

Time for a string of new songs in a plethora of different genres by me and Stanfield @smajor that has been held back by other songs for a while, some up to a year old by now and this is one of them:

The Wheel Goes 'Round Again

As always any and all comments and feedback is warmly welcomed.  :)

The Wheel Goes 'Round Again
-------------------------------------------
We are what we are
and that's how we remain
facing the eternity of time
that none of us can explain.

Some live inside the White House
some suffer in a dive
but we're all tryin' to do our best
every moment we're alive

I've seen too many strut out
filled up with their conceit
can't even see the people
struggling at their feet

but the world is always changing
like the churning tide
the ones on top are losing
so the ones below will ride.

But we are what we are
and the turning never ends
we're stuck inside the circle...
and the wheel goes 'round again.

Lyrics by: Stanfield Major
Music by: Mikael Lagersson

Hi @Layerson  @smajor

I liked a lot your song! Lyrics are very well rhymed..  I love the change of voice color from 1'40 approx.
Your voice has that special touch that fits perfectly for this dark, tribe style,

I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

Thanks @Mora Amaro La Loba  ::headphone::

Itís very well rhymed, think that too. Stan often has a way of making lyrics super easy to sing.  :sleepy:

I thought it needed a high pitch voice for contrast and Iím happy you liked that part. It has one of Logicís built in vocal tracks effect on it called ďLeslieĒ (I think it was at least) and that gives it a good vibrant touch.

Hi @Layerson and @smajor ...
Powerful lyrics, emotional complimentary music. Love the way it ends.
Do what makes your heart sing :)

Thank you @Kellyanneg  :shinyteeth:

Iím using Logics presets and audio samples exclusively for this song. Itís one of those songs that kinda wrote itself  ::headphone::

I like a well written "big picture" song with sharp lyrics @Layerson  & @smajor . Doomy , but the  change in vocal pitch and style is very good,; the mood lightens (  harmonies are well done too).
You guys make  an excellent team ::thumb::

Robert

Thanks @robertkc  ::headphone::

I like your description, it fits the song much better than electronic. Definitely more a ďbig pictureĒ song.

Hi @Mora Amaro La Loba , @Kellyanneg , @robertkc , @Layerson

Thank you all for the positive comments.

I agree with you Robert... that Micke and I make a great team. Not only do we work well together, but we're also good friends (despite being many miles apart).

For various reasons I've been dropping the ball lately. It means a lot to me to know that Micke has been keeping things going in my absence.

Later,
Stan

Wow @smajor  & @Layerson     tremendous collab here!!!! Seriously great teamwork!
The lyrics of @smajor  the beautiful painting on canvas turned into a three dimensional mass sculpture of colors swirling through space and time! @Layerson you gave these words a voice and I don't just mean good vocals Ö. I mean the song is alive! I love it!  :ok:
Good show!

Lovely feedback of the best kind @Bill from November Sound  ::headphone::

With time and some distance to it, I think itís a great song too. Feels like a year is a long time, but itís gone by fast and I feel itís very complete despite my increased mixing knowledge.( Iím super happy for the excellent feedback, canít find the words really)

Re release: We are planning a release in the very near future, Iíll be sure to inform you when itís up next in the pipeline. (We are planning to release a couple of other songs too, think it is second in queue.)

Just catching up after our choir concerts ... wow this is a cracking (Yorkshire-ism :- very good) track.

It reminds of Bowie in his Low period ... it has that Berlin vibe to me.

Hats off to both of you .

I enjoy the spurs of Yorkshire-ism and that youíre comparing it with the periodic works of Bowie, he is iconic and a great influence musically @MrBouzouki  ::headphone::

Iím actually wearing a hat or a headpiece nowadays so I return the gesture by nodding it with my cupped hand, with my deepest respect.  ::Hoss:: (...sadly I couldnít find a better emoji... my hat looks different...)

Thanks @AshBordeaux  :shinyteeth:

Youíre probably spot on with the influence. I could say I was always a hardcore metal fan but thatís not true. It all started for me with music in the 80s and one of the big (secret) idols were Depeche and I even got a keytar at on time. Iíve journeyed trough a bunch of different genres by now, but I actually listened to them today on vinyl. So theyíre not that far off and there might be a subconscious influence there. (My wife keeps telling me to make ďsome good musicĒ again, sheís not all that into metal. Thereís gonna be more of synth in my future productions...  ::dj::)
