For those who know and are interested, there’s a free mp3 from Daniel Johnston here.
The song, “Freedom” is a full-on rock song and Johnston’s vocals, which are usually paired with a more stripped-down instrumentation, seem to fit nicely. (Check out the full story from Buzzgrinder.com.)
For those who don’t know but are interested, there’s a documentary, The Devil and Daniel Johnston, that you should check out. I watched it a few years ago and was mesmerized at the story. It is at once sad, triumphant, and confusing. (Of course, I realize that tells you nothing, but you should still check it out if you get a chance.)
Johnston’s new CD comes out Oct. 9. In the meantime, check out the free stuff.
