Everybody has a favorite band or artist. You have all their albums. You know all their songs. You’ve even seen them in concert a few times. You love their music. You put it on and it’s like a blanket, it wraps around you all warm and comfy. And every couple of years they put out a new album or release a new single. And there’s nothing quite like hearing a new song from your favorite artist for the first time. You know that you’re going to like it before you even hear it. You hit play and the music hits you. It should sound familiar yet still be new and exciting. It’s like unwrapping an awesome birthday present for three and a half minutes. You’re hooked and you can’t put it down. And when the song ends you play it over again and again so you can learn all the words.
