The Awl, The Song

We recently got in touch with a popular recording artist who happens to be an admirer of The Awl. This musician expressed an interest in contributing to the site, and we’re happy to announce that the result of our conversations is a regular column that should start up in the very near future. That’s exciting enough, but there’s a bonus! During the period where we were discussing potential topics for the series, our friend was struck by the muse, and entered a secret subterranean studio to record a theme song organized around the principles which underpin our project and the philosophies we hope to impart here every day. The result, “The Awl, The Song (Hair Metal Version)” is ready to be thrust upon a waiting world. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. And keep an eye out for the column; it’s going to change your life. [WARNING: There is a bad word in this track, so if you’re listening at work, turn the volume down.]
