The L.I.F.E. Project (Stone Sour) Unveil New Track, “A World On Fire”
The L.I.F.E. Project, the musical collaboration between Stone Sour guitarist Josh Rand and co-songwriter and vocalist Casandra Carson, have unveiled another new song, “A World On Fire.” The duo’s previous single, “Ignite,” arrived in May.
“When I started working on the music for ‘A World On Fire’ the idea I envisioned was to take the listener to different places within the song. From the main guitar riff, to double time pre choruses, to the soundscaping in the choruses. The hardest part when writing a song like that, is to make sure it doesn’t feel forced or choppy and all the parts are cohesive. I feel we achieved that.”
“This song is one giant metaphor for wanting to permanently log off of social media. After watching a documentary about how addictive it is, and the negative impacts it has on mental health, I started realizing how much time, mental and emotional energy I was spending on it. Ever since then, I’ve started realizing I don’t need the validation of getting likes and comments to measure my happiness or self-worth.”
You can listen to “A World on Fire” below. The L.I.F.E. Project’s debut self-titled EP arrives on July 9; pre-order here.
Corey Taylor said last summer that Stone Sour are on an “indefinite hiatus.”
