An artist whose career spans more than three decades of twists and turns, Randy Casey has become loved and appreciated by fans and critics alike, and on the 15th of July this year, he’s set to release his latest album, ‘1 Dollar or 1 Dead Smith’.
To champion the upcoming release of the new record, Randy has shared a brilliant first glimpse, releasing the title track and a sharp lyrical video. Released on May 21st this year, the video has become something of a sensation, earning over 100,000 views and continuing to impress. Armed with a textured rock sound that is built on some truly evocative songwriting, the lead single is a powerful illustration of Randy’s versatility and creativity.
As with the rest of the album, the lead single rolls out a heavy Americana sound, one that is steeped in homegrown rock roots, timeless melodies, and a keen modern ear. At its core, it’s a song that comes straight from Randy’s busy life, offering a true cut about a neighbourhood bully that shines with added realism.
When making the new album, Randy has left no stone unturned, pushing the boundaries and digging deep to make it as enjoyable and immersive as possible. The songs are subjective and deal with different aspects of rock music. The lyrics are phenomenal in expressing the subject of each song, and he supports them perfectly with honest bouts of charming Americana.
While we’ll have to wait a little longer for the full album, you can stream the lead single above alongside the official lyrics video.
