Tim Fite is premiering a brand new track from his upcoming album Ain't Ain't Ain't today care of BrooklynVegan.com. The new song is entitled "We Are All Teenagers" and it is the thematic centerpiece of the Fite's powerful and evocative new album. The track is a heartfelt lament to the awkwardness of the teenage years, human frailty and the lost promise of youth, building steadily to a magnificent Phil Spector-like crescendo.
You can listen to the track by going to Brooklyn Vegan.
Based in Brooklyn, Tim Fite is an artist and a true original. Esquire Magazine referred to Fite as "one of rock 'n' roll's most subversive renaissance men" and Playboy Magazine describes him, "... as a kind of narrator. It's an approach that's a signature for guys like Randy Newman and it's exactly what wins you over to Fite's kaleidoscopic imagination. He's not just a quirky lyricist, he's a real composer."
Unlike Fite's previous works in his acclaimed "Ain't" trilogy, Fair Ain't Fair and Gone Ain't Gone, which were created using a collage of sampling from the music of strangers or artists found in the dollar bin at the record shop, Ain't Ain't Ain't utilizes a library of sounds recorded by Fite and a small cadre of friends for the sole purpose of reconstructive self-sampling which you can see here.
Ain't Ain't Ain't by Tim Fite comes out this March 6th on Anti-Records.
