Anthony just did a live Instagram video of him and his friend William Wells working on/recording a song, and it was insanely beautiful. Anthony was in the sound booth and recorded it all in one take, and his vocals were just insane. It was very simple, with just a few lyrics, but also gorgeously sung and incredibly calming. William was accompanying him on the keyboard. Some of the lyrics included something like “let the light in; let it through” (repeated multiple times). Anthony said they weren’t sure what it was about yet, but called it a cry for humanity.
They switched over to Williams Instagram for a live video after a while, and there they played snippets of two more songs they had been working on. The first was more upbeat, and included a lyric that was something like “meet me halfway with wings wide open”, and sounded like the chorus or maybe the bridge. The second was a rap song, and started with Anthony talking about his experience with a vocal coach who at one point did not think he would have ended up where he is now, and then segued into him rapping along that theme.
They talked about Jazzy at multiple points, but it wasn’t clear if she was there or not. They seemed very excited to keep working on songs for the album, and were still working on songs when they turned the live stream off.
The party would have been better if it never had happened, in mini Fran’s opinion. I forgot what a shy little bug she is. Nevertheless, she grows up into a silly outfit I’ve been meaning to get rid of…but it’s kind of cute on her. (Captions.)
