MUSIC NEWS: The Homeless Gospel Choir Signs To Hassle Records & Releases New Single ‘Don’t Compare’
The Homeless Gospel Choir, the project of Derek Zanetti, has signed to Hassle Records. To celebrate the news the band have released a brand new single, Don’t Compare.
“All day long your phone is begging for your attention. Advert after advert. Expand your business. Gated lifestyle communities. Latte art contests. The perfect 3rd birthday for some rich kid in Martha’s Vineyard,” Zanetti explains of the meaning behind the new song. “All the people you know and don’t know are selling you their best 30 seconds a day as a branded commodifiable good that you can also purchase through PayPal. Skinny people in a bathing suit doing yoga during sunset, or everyone you’ve ever known at the MISFITS reunion show except you. This song was written as an encouragement to remember that I can only be myself, and that’s an important thing to be.”
