Continuing to build anticipation for their forthcoming album Retrograde, Crown The Empire has just released a pretty new sounding single all about the pressure of trying to please everybody.
Essentially, in attempt to voice their displeasure about creating exactly what the internet wants, the Houston-based outfit took a stab at doing something different with their musical approach – which yes, the internet tends to disprove of at times.
“Everyone has something to say and an opinion to give (thanks internet!),“ explained vocalist Andy Leo. ”‘Weight of the World’ is about living under the unblinking eyes and scrutiny of social media, whether you are in a band, a public figure or just a kid trying to belong. It’s about feeling the pressure of trying to please EVERYONE all the time, but only to not please anyone at all.”
