Busdriver: Kiss Me Back to Life

Busdriver has a new release on the way titled Beaus$Eros (pronounced “Bows and Arrows”). It’s a big departure from his previous work, which was largely speed rhyming. It’s also thematic, focusing on a recent break from his fiancé and a time in his life when, “Personal pratfalls just made Beaus and Eros a lot more cathartic than my albums usually are.” We interviewed him this week and will publish our conversation in the coming days. For now, below is a listen to his new sound. Although it’s certainly more pop influenced, you won’t be getting any “bling bling” or video babes with Bus’. Just good writing, good beats, a good sense of humor, and the big reveal of a great singing voice. He’s more than a speed rapper with technical skills. And in “Kiss Me Back to Life” below, he also shares that, “I’m more than a boyfriend, I’m a mistake to learn from.”
