Jan. 12 — Blacktop Mojo premiered the lyric video for its latest single this week.
The band premiered the lyric video for its new single, ‘Strike Me‘ Tuesday. Originally recorded during the sessions for the band’s self-titled record, which was released last August through Sandhill Records, the song did not make the album’s final cut.
Blacktop Mojo’s established audiences will find the musical arrangement featured in the band’s new album familiar. That is evidenced through its heavy, southern rock sludge sound and stylistic approach.
The band said of the song, “we had the privilege to add the background singing of the world famous McCrary Sisters on the track, who were an honor to work with. It was our first time bringing in outside background singing.”
The band talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.
“The song is a sardonic answer to living through the great many turmoils we’ve all dealt with, especially in the last two years,” the statement reads. “It’s essentially us observing the world around us and exclaiming, ‘I’m coming, Elizabeth!’ to quote the late, great Redd Foxx.”
