Valentine’s Day MP3 Download From Sage Francis: “Lost Loves”

Sage Francis

Sage Francis has just released a special Valentine’s Day track, “Lost Loves”, available for download here.

Of the song, Francis says:

“Lost Loves” is a song that literally took 20 years to complete. The first half was recording in 1991 and the other half was recorded in 2011. Thanks to my pack-rat ways since an early age, I’m now able to trade bars with my younger self.

Finalizing this song involved salvaging a 20 year old recording from a 2nd generation cassette dub, filling in the blank lines, and twisting what was originally a tale of unrequited love into a bizarre story about a man who thinks it’s appropriate to woo his lady with battle raps.

To top it all off, this is the long-awaited return of my nasty alter-ego, Xaul Zan…so don’t expect anything sweet. “It’s got to do with lots of lovin’ and it ain’t nuthin’ nice.”

Sage Francis will be in Madison for a show at the High Noon Saloon this Thursday evening, February 16, 2012.  Get your tickets here—they’re going fast!
