“Make Em Purr” video, lyrics, backstory

1 isolation

VIDEO: http://youtu.be/bjxHy8WTgTs Video Director: Wasaru. 
Art Director: Jebedaï Couture Special thanks to Jim Foltice for help with the treatment. “Make Em Purr” has been one of the most discussed songs from the Copper Gone album, and since the most popular question I get asked on tour is, “How’s your cat, man?” — I figured it would be a good time to give you the song’s backstory. “Make Em Purr” didn’t even exist until a day before my final recording session. In fact, I considered the whole album to be finished save for one legal issue I had with “Thank You.” …

The Interview Invasion, 2014

1 head shot crop

I’ve done a slew of interviews in 2014, all of which surfaced around the same time. Here’s the comprehensive breakdown… This is an interview I did with BeeShine on the very first day of the Copper Gone Tour. It’s probably my favorite video interview that I’ve done: http://youtu.be/SmdzjDfhOpc Here’s a video interview I did in Pittsburgh on the day of Copper Gone‘s release: http://youtu.be/7lJ9zlmwvC8 Here are a couple podcasts I participated in recently. It’s a lot of talking. If you’re bored or working around the house, feel free to play them while you shuffle about: Shots Fired: https://soundcloud.com/shots-fired-podcast/episode-77-sage-francis Chrome Bills …

Phoenix Cover Story – “To Hell and Back”

1 phoenix

It’s been a long time since I got any significant coverage from local media. Big thanks to Chris Conti for getting me the cover story: http://providence.thephoenix.com/music/158805-to-hell-and-back/ Here’s a bit of an aside that I wrote on my Facebook page, June 26th: It feels a bit heavy handed to call what I’ve gone through “to hell and back,” especially when my situation was largely self-inflicted. In my head. And it’s not something people could help me with. I choose how I live. There many people going through much worse in their daily lives without any say in the matter. That’s not …

Performance + Interview on Abby Martin’s “Breaking The Set”

1 abby

A few months ago I was contacted by Abby Martin to appear on her news show, “Breaking the Set” on RT. As this show is filmed in DC, we decided it would be best to swing through there on the day of my show in DC show which happened to be at the tail-end of my Copper Gone Tour. Unfortunately that also meant that my voice would be incredibly hoarse, but that’s no excuse to skip out on the G that is Miss Martin. “Vonnegut Busy” + interview http://youtu.be/M8uK38eTPn8 “Dead Man’s Float” (this didn’t make it to air) http://youtu.be/vktJP5vKib4 Also, …

“Thank You” – (Daytrotter Session) + lyrics

1 daytrotter crop

“Thank You” (Daytrotter session) “Thank You” is off of my Copper Gone album dropping June 3rd. This version of the song was performed at Daytrotter’s SXSW studio last March. Here’s the write up from Sean Moeller at www.Daytrotter.com: “We knew what Sage Francis was going to do to us when he came by the studio in Austin a month ago. We knew he was going to destroy us. We just didn’t know he was going to destroy us as much as he wound up destroying us. He’s a rapper unequaled and his new record, ‘COPPER GONE’, is a goddamned blessing, …

Buck 65 weighs in on “Copper Gone”

Not only was Buck 65 kind enough to help me work on the last song that was recorded for “Copper Gone” (a most important song for the album and something I will explain in full detail soon,) but he was also gracious enough to put together the following write-up for the album. We’ve worked together a lot through the years and, consider how much I look up to him as an artist and a writer, I’m beyond honored: Sage Francis has a new album. It’s called “Copper Gone” and it’s incredible. It’s the kind of record that smacks you in …

We are SO coffee mug official right now.

1 coffee mug

FIRST…I can’t reveal the cover art for “Copper Gone” just yet, but what I can do is show you this selfie that I took this morning while standing on a mountain of scrap metal. Also, I can tell you that I’m listening to the mastered version of the album for the first time ever. I went through so much shit for this moment right here. Rather than trying to explain the impossible, I’m just going to get naked and cuddle up with my headphones. When you get a chance to do the same, I hope you feel as rewarded as …
