    Looks it’s been/is being recorded. Lots of fun teases on Elfman’s Instagram.

    Love all the drums! I wonder if it’s an extrapolation of the stuff he was working on for Coachella?

    Incidentally, Ryan, I’ve been trying to make a new post here but it hasn’t been working!

    This forum has almost been as quiet as Elfman’s input as of late!

    I’ll look into if there are any technical issues with posting.

    I like the percussive bits that he posted on Instagram, but less enthused with the grungey fuss guitars in the last couple of clips. Needs more synths!

    First song is out on streaming platforms.

    It’s…something ? I’ve never been huge fan of Elfman’s rock work to be honest so I don’t know.

    I think it’s fun! The mixing seems off to me, but I lack the technical knowledge to articulate why.

    I love the idea that this obscenity-filled song was permeating in his mind at the same time as a percussion concerto.

    I love it! It’s great mish-mash of Elfmanisms – a little bit of NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, a little bit of Philip Glass-ian minimalism and a little bit of punkish New Wave, Boingo-style.

    Hope there’s more to come, whether a whole studio album or something else.

    I like “Happy” more.

    Both of these are a natural continuation of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers/Ninch Inch Nails-type sound that defined their last album in ’94 (the children’s chorus in “Sorry” brings the children’s chorus in “Insanity” to mind). Only darker. Personally, I wish he went back to his funkier and cleaner New Wave roots a bit more, rather than being all grungey and metally and fussy, but I’m just thankful we’re getting new rock songs from him. Would be awesome if these singles amounted to a whole allbum at some point.

    It seems that he will be releasing a new track on the 11th every month “for a while”. So there will definitely be enough content for an album at some point…

    I hope it’s conceived as an album and not 13 songs.

    Ok, that one is my favorite of the three. More “on point” to my hears.
    And what an adorably weird video.

    Love the video, like the song.

    Wonder if all of the music is gonna be this…angry?
