Check out Diana Pops' new song 'Light My Cigarette' on BandCamp. We did this song together in Nashville and Winnipeg.. Tyler Burkum played the guitar and Bryan Cook mixed. Check out what Diana has to say about the song below:
"Light My Cigarette" was written as a response. When faced with events in my life that could incur major change, my reflex action is to write a song to calm myself down. This is not so much to make me feel better, but more to paint a larger picture which reflects the feelings of the moment back at me to help me understand where I'm at.
This song was originally about the prospect of signing a record deal. When I was approached, I was more scared than excited. I'm a bit of a hermit, and the thought of being "on" all the time was a pretty daunting one. At the time there was so much unknown to me about what my lifestyle would look like should I be signed - but I was pretty sure it would entail more than drinking tea and playing piano late into the night; tucked away in my old house on the prairies.
I ended up recording "Light My Cigarette" two weeks after I wrote it, whilst I was in LA to meet with the label. The irony was not lost on me.
