PlaySong Named After a Girl
“Song Named After a Girl” is the opening track from my new album, The Sound. A few months back, I was driving along to Iron & Wine’s “Jezebel,” and pondering what a different flavor it would have if the subject’s name was Judy or Jennifer. That led to mentally cataloging every other like-named song I could recall, from the Beatles’ “Michelle” to Toto’s “Roseanna.” I wondered what name I'd choose, and decided the world doesn’t need another song named after a girl. For better or worse, it got this.
