Over the course of his career, Tom Freund has created a wide variety of albums. His first was a collaboration with Ben Harper and his last was a double disc live album. In between, he’s made full-lengths, EPs, a children’s CD and a Christmas album — but he’s never made an album like 2 Moons.
This self-produced disc, due out August 17th on Surf Road Records, finds the Los Angeles-based Freund in a contemplative yet confident mood, where swirls of nostalgia blend with sharp-eyed views of life today. He delivers this CD’s main message in the standout track “Lemme Be Who I Wanna Be,” in which he declares: “I’m basically hooked on this life/it’s got a lot of problems/but it treats me real right/and you don’t have to agree with me/but let me fly my freak flag.” This oddly upbeat anthem of personal empowerment so impressed Canadian rock star Serena Ryder that she asked to sing on it. “Lemme Be Who I Wanna Be” represents a different type of song for Freund. “I’d rather just be honest and say ‘take me as a I am’,” he reveals, adding, “I felt that I didn’t have to dress up songs with clever couplets all the time.”
EAGLES OF DEATH METAL PLAY IT FORWARD CAMPAIGN ROUND THREE
ELTON JOHN, BECK TEAMED WITH MEMBERS OF THE STROKES & MORE LAUNCH THIRD WAVE OF COVERS OF EODM’S “I LOVE YOU ALL THE TIME” AVAILABLE TODAY
Artists Covering The Song To Donate Their Proceeds To The Sweet Stuff Foundation
Eagles Of Death Metal has announced the release of the third round of the Play It Forward EODM Campaign that debuted December 18, 2015 with its first helping of covers of “I Love You All The Time” from the band’s current album Zipper Down.
As before, the band pledges to donate 100% of its publishing income from every cover sold to The Sweet Stuff Foundation, the non-profit organization founded in 2013 by EODM co-founder Joshua Homme to provide assistance to musicians and their families in times of need, as well as musical education and gear for the next generation. Participating artists were once again asked to donate the money generated from sales of the song to the charity. iTunes, Prime Music, Spotify and TuneCore Digital Distribution are also donating proceeds.
The Play It Forward EODM Campaign was first inspired by none other than Duran Duran who reached out with an immediate and sincere act of musical solidarity in the aftermath of the November 13, 2015 attacks in Paris that took so many lives at Eagles Of Death Metal’s show that night at Le Bataclan: Spurred by a fan-led campaign to push Eagles Of Death Metal’s cover of Duran Duran’s classic “Save A Prayer” to #1 in the UK, Simon LeBon tweeted that the new romantic icons would donate their share of royalties from the track to charity.
In the weeks that followed, Eagles Of Death Metal asked artists the world over to cover “I Love You All The Time,” pledging to donate 100% of its publishing income to The Sweet Stuff Foundation. With invaluable support from TuneCore, the first wave of “I Love You All The Time” renditions were made available, with contributions from artists as diverse as Florence + The Machine (featuring The Maccabees), Kings Of Leon, Savages, My Morning Jacket, Imagine Dragons, Jimmy Eat World, the Dean Ween Group and more. On January 22, 2016, a second wave was released, with versions from Matt Cameron, Petra Haden, Nada Surf, Chelsea Wolfe and a dozen others.
And now a third round of covers is available. Contributions from none other than Elton John as well as a special collaboration from The Strokes’ Fabrizio Moretti and Nick Valensi featuring Beck—the full list of participants in alphabetical order is:
