SAINT MOTEL UNVEIL NEW SINGLE “EVERYONE’S A GURU NOW”
TRACK MARKS FIRST NEW MUSIC FROM THE BAND SINCE ACCLAIMED 2021 STUDIO ALBUM THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK
Elektra Recording group Saint Motel have unveiled their brand new single entitled “Everyone’s A Guru Now”. “Everyone’s A Guru Now” notably marks the first new music from Saint Motel since the release of their acclaimed 2021 studio album The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
About “Everyone’s A Guru Now”, frontman A/J Jackson shares, “The song started out with this tipsy piano saunter and grew from there. Around the time I was writing the song, a lot of people I knew had been reinventing themselves as “experts” and creating personas and courses. Perhaps some of that rubbed off on the lyrical matter. In the final phases of the song production, it ended up being a matter of what elements we could take away from the song and still let it stand. Very excited to send this song off into the world!”
On the lively track, gorgeous piano underscores theatrical orchestration, punctuated by boisterous brass and choir-style harmonies. Meanwhile, the swooning vocals resound on a chantable chorus, “My God, I’m feeling oh so fine, what the hell did you do? Got me stepping outside my mind, everyone’s a guru now!”
Earlier this week, Saint Motel wrapped the sold-out first leg of their 2023 tour, The Awards Show. Delivering an experience unlike any other trek the quartet have embarked upon, the very special tour gives fans the power to choose what the musicians play through partially fan-voted setlists. Bringing The Awards Show experience to fans around the world, Saint Motel livestreamed the run’s final sold-out date at New York City’s Webster Hall, where they delivered the live debut of “Everyone’s A Guru Now”. Saint Motel is expected to announce additional dates on The Awards Show in the coming weeks. Visit SaintMotel.com for more information.
In 2021, Saint Motel released their latest studio album The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The album arrived to widespread acclaim from People, SPIN, Paste, Ladygunn, Billboard, American Songwriter, and more, and saw the band deliver an unforgettable performance of lead single “Van Horn” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Additionally, the band teamed up with the Fames Orchestra of Macedonia and renowned film composer Duke Bojadziev, to bring The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to life in its entirety on stage during a global livestream. The show notably featured the film score transitions previously composed by Duke, live in the Macedonian capital of Skopje. In support of the LP, they headlined The Director’s Cut North American and European tours, selling out venues on both continents in 2021.
