Los Angeles’ singer-songwriter musician MIRANDA LEE RICHARDS has released the song “Another World” taken from her new album EXISTENTIAL BEAST, which is out today, Friday June 16 on Invisible Hands Music (here). The 12-minute epic track explores two contrasting viewpoints in reality about the world that exists now and an inspiring one that could exist one day.
MIRANDA describes the creation of the song, “‘Another World’ started out as a Shirley Collins-inspired A Capella Medieval protest song (why not?), but transformed into something even more: it took many, many weeks to craft, both lyrically and in orchestrating this nearly twelve-minute piece.” MIRANDA adds, “In the post-election climate, reading and listening to the news everyday produced new depressing verses, but not wanting to feel hopeless I decided to get to the heart of the matter and tackle American politics and history, environmental and racial issues, feminism, economics, global warming, animal rights, imperialism, big Pharma and corporate take-over, terrorism, and healthcare, all through the eyes of California whose anthropomorphized character in the song is our beloved mother, lover, daughter, sister and like-minded friend.”
Following are the lyrics for MIRANDA LEE RICHARDS’ new song “Another World.”
