X-Files star and musician David Duchovny has used his voice to record a new song ‘Layin’ On The Tracks’ about the US election.
Duchovny says, “I just wanted to go on record in a way that was both personal and political. A kind of snapshot of my mind and where I see us but not literal. Like a photo from a speeding train. Imagistic. Personal, but not personal. Putting a stop to the runaway locomotive things as they are—-Laying on the tracks. Making music against the chaos—-laying down the tracks. Don’t forget, Laying down a groove. The personal is political and the political personal these days. Vote the bums out.”
In ‘Layin’ On The Tracks’, David sings:
The crowds will gather in the poison rain
To hear what they want
Scream and cheer for what was once insane
That passes for fun
It’s a killing joke that no one laughs at
A stupid orange man in a cheap red hat
David Duchovny plans to release his third album ‘Gestureland’ (working title at this stage) early 2021.
