Canadian indie band Zeus will release their second album, Busting Visions, on March 27th. The album's second single is the upbeat, call-and-response-fueled "Anything You Want Dear," which singer Mike O'Brien says was a late addition to Busting Visions.

Random Notes

"The song was spawned from a guitar hook that had been kicking around in my brain for at least a couple of years. I was inspired during the recording sessions for Busting Visions to pull it out and rework it. It's a great representation of the talents of all four Zeusmen," he says. "Lots of harmony singing and call-and-response vocals, dueling guitar licks, a killer bass line that sometimes serves as a lead and some killer drum fills to boot. A later arrival to the record that somehow summed up a lot of what we had been working on."

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
