This is my cover of The Black Penguins' "HOPE"

When Eric of the Black Penguins first sent me his demo, my mind immediately thought of "Teardrop" by Massive Attack, and I wanted to try and recreate that sound/emotion.

After putting a few layers down, the song was missing something. I tried having a turntablist scratch over, I was trying audio clips, it needed something. I sent the rough version back to Eric, and he laid down an awesome guitar solo over the whole thing. I ended up cutting and pasting his solo into the middle and end parts that you hear, and the song had what it needed!

lyrics

This is your day
you’ll make it through
You have to believe in
More than just you

Someday we’ll find out
there more than just words
Someday we’ll be free again
just like the breeze

This is your day
your time is now
Be more than just space
let go of the worry

Do more than get by
you don’t have to be a hero
Be who you were created to be
oh, its beautiful, so beautiful

This is your day
so fly like an eagle
Catch hold of your dreams
take hold of the light,
it’s for you and I

Take hold of the light
Cause this is your day
This is your day
you’ll make it through
You have to believe in
More than just you yes it’s true
