Aug. 6 — Steve Conte premiered the latest single from his new album this week.
Conte premiered his new single, ‘Dog Days of Summer‘ Thursday. The song is the third single from his album, Bronx Cheer, which is scheduled for release Nov. 5 through Wicked Cool Records. The song’s premiere follows that of the album’s first two singles, ‘Recovery Doll‘ and ‘Gimme Gimme Rockaway.’
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Dog Days of Summer’ is a steady, mid-tempo composition that blends some classic rock leaning with a touch of country rock. The pairing of those influences makes the song a unique musical work.
The lyrical theme that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement adds its own appeal to the whole with its introspective nature.
Conte talked about that theme during a recent interview.
“It started with the title, which is a phrase I always liked, but when I was finished with it, I noticed that I wasn’t only writing about those awful hot days in August where you don’t want to do much of anything,” he said. “I was also writing about getting older and watching the young upstarts, full of hope and goals, pushing hard to get somewhere – and seeing my kids zoom by me with all their energy. At this point, I feel like I can relax and don’t have much to prove, because my work is out there on records, on video, in the consciousness of the public – in my bubble, anyway. And the work speaks for itself.”
