New Songs! - Gravity, Into the Light, The Streets

Post by Monolith Maniac »

At the recent Mankato, Minnesota show on August 6, Soul Asylum fans were treated to hearing 3 of their new songs for the first time. EnterTheSoulAsylum.com is fortunate to provide fans and newcomers with these 3 new awesome songs from the Mankato show.

The new songs are:

Gravity
Into the Light
The Streets

As of right now, we have them located on our audio page so feel free to download them there. Just enter "Twin Tone" (no quotes) at the prompt and you'll have access to them as well as some other songs which some of you may not have heard.

Click to visit the audio page.

Hopefully we'll get to hear these songs more and more with all the upcoming shows. So far, I'm really digging them more and more each time I listen to them. :)

Enjoy, and please post all your thoughts and comments about the songs in this thread.

Ahhhhh, first new SA material in over 4 years (ok, apart from Let's All Kill Each Other)... a very good way to start my weekend after a long work week. I'm liking these songs a lot at first hear. Can't wait for the new album.

That's Soul Asylum, all right! It's awesome to finally hear some new material.

I can't figure out off-hand what song Gravity is really similar to, but it definitely reminds me of previous tunes. All three of them do, really.

It's also pretty cool that this is the forum's 1000th thread. Well, the forum front page says it's somewhere around 850, but the t=1000 in the URL tells us otherwise. I'm guessing all of the spam threads we've received over the years get their own ID numbers but don't count toward the total since they're deleted. Either way, it's a fun coincidence.

I love all three. They've been stuck in my head since I first heard them. My favorite keeps changing - Right now it's Gravity. Can't wait to see them do them at an upcoming show!

As I did with Let's All Kill Each Other, I am currently in the process of trying to decipher the lyrics to the 3 new songs and put them up on the site. Although we've only got one live recording (so far) to work with I've started 3 new threads (one for each song) under the content discussion forum (which will actually get some use).

I'm sure the lyrics will be slightly different for the next few shows as the guys are just warming up with the song, but I'm just making these threads just in case anyone wants to partake in figuring out the lyrics.

If you see any mistakes that I've made and/or hear something that I've left out please feel free to contribute in the following threads:


Gravity lyrics

Into the light lyrics

The Streets lyrics

They played two songs I never heard at today's Oyster Festival in Milford CT. I'm pretty sure one was Gravity. I'll have to listen again to figure out what the other one was (But I assume one of these two).

Today's show was awesome. They weren't as tight as they were in Stamford a month or two ago, but the show was longer and much more satisfying to me.
