“The song is about coming to terms with being haunted by a ghost. Whether it comes in the form of subconscious anxiety or physical paranormal activity, it’s all the same to me. There’s a camaraderie in the haunting relationship with the ghost, and the result is rarely fear. The ghost felt like a travel partner while on tour – making noise and breaking gear, but keeping the mood light. It was fun while it lasted.”
Written and recorded in tandem, You’re The Boss finds Holland self-producing, playing almost every instrument on the record, as well as singing and writing his own lyrics for the first time. Though it’s full of firsts, You’re The Boss sounds like the work of an indie artist decades into their career. Pre-save now, or snag the limited edition blue jay vinyl (only 500 copies available).
