New Single: "Jupiter"
Written, recorded, and produced by The Racer
“And you save me, all the time.”
Jupiter started out as an instrumental demo our guitarist Mike Esserman sent out to the band that we had an immediate reaction to. The feeling of the song was so strong that we started to work on it immediately. To be honest, there was a little bit of pressure to come up something great because the song had such a promising start based on the demo alone.
The lyrics are specifically about thanking those who have supported the band over the years. Being in a band is an amazing thrill but can be very difficult to keep going. It is very easy to let doubt slip in and destroy one’s confidence and creative will. Over the years, there have been countless individuals who have served as saviors of this band. Whether they are family, friends, fans, or even individual bandmates they many times have gone unnamed and unacknowledged. This song is our small way of saying thank you to all of those people who make us believe when we struggle to do so ourselves. They will never know how many times they have saved us.
