Easy, breezy and just a bit left of center, Miniature Tigers arrive today with their perfectly infectious new track, “Nobody Else,” taken from their forthcoming album, I Dreamt I Was A Cowboy, due October 28.
With an eclectic sample and meditative lyrics that will make you feel brand new, the song was a collaborative project for the band. Frontman, Charlie Brand explains- “My friend Jeff Whitman turned me on to Millie Small when we were having dinner one night. I became obsessed with her incredible voice. I started chopping her song “What Am I Living For” up and sent it to Rick. He added those piano chords and some vocals and sent it back to me to finish.”
Brand adds, “Mae (Whitman) gave me the line “Sleep more / Drink less / Find a better therapist” which led to the theme of the song. This song to me is really a big collaboration with my friends and loved ones.”
