Philly-raised, West Coast-based rock & roll songsmith Mondo Cozmo (aka Josh Ostrander) shares “Meant for Livin’” today, which follows his funk-driven, jubilant track “Feel Good.” The song is the second single from his third full length album due later this year, and is a modern day spin on the music he was raised on by iconic musicians, lyricists and everyday men like Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen. “This is the first song that I wrote when the pandemic hit, with the lyrics reading as a practical guide for successful living,” notes Ostrander. Listen to “Meant for Livin’” here: https://lnk.to/meant4livin.
Tell your lover that you love her, hold her hand when you discover
That dreams are meant for dreamin’ and life is meant for livin’
Say a prayer for Mama’s wears and here’s to hoping that you get out alive
In addition to the track, Mondo Cozmo shares this vibrant hybrid live action / stop motion animation lyric video. Written by Ostrander’s frequent collaborator Tyson Mason, and directed by Travis Shinn who brought in visual artist Chloe Fleury for the paper art and animation, the video was shot over two days in Los Angeles in December of 2020 with Ostraner noting, “…it was a blast to do. Hope you enjoy it.” Watch the video for “Meant for Living’” here: https://youtu.be/Yy4PDbAg8ys.
