New Amerika was an important track recorded early in the sessions that produced my eponymous album in 2007. In fact, the album was originally going to be titled ‘New Amerika’, and my song copyrights for the project are collectively referenced as ‘New Amerika’. But by the time the album was being completed, it didn’t feel like the right time for the song. The track receded beneath the surface and the album took on its eponymous heading. Last night I stumbled on it in some old files, and came to the conclusion that it now feels like the right time for it.
