Description

New Black Suit is the transcendent new album from Stephen Doster on Atticus Records. Like Arizona, his 2014 solo comeback release, Doster once again self-produced New Black Suit, using the same core studio players that helped make Arizona a critical success. Recorded and mixed by Doster’s longtime studio partner, James Stevens, at EAR Studios in Austin, New Black Suit features the impeccable Kevin Lovejoy (Spoon, John Mayer) on keyboards and piano, master drummer-percussionist, Dony Wynn (Robert Palmer, Dr. John), and bassist extraordinaire, George Reiff (Joe Walsh, Jakob Dylan, Dixie Chicks), who unfortunately passed away from brain cancer shortly before New Black Suit’s completion. Sporting ten new stellar tracks written by Doster, New Black Suit marks a definitive step forward for Doster as a musical artist, smartly demonstrating his mastery of every creative aspect of music making from the songwriting to the performance to the production. From the transcendent opening track and lead single, “Shooting For The Stars” to the elegiac closer and title track, “New Black Suit,” the entire album celebrates the dreamers and visionaries the world lost too soon (“William Melvin Hicks” and “Until The End”), the vicissitudes of life and love (“Something Good” and “Love Like Summertime”), the soul crushing costs of urban sprawl (“You Should’ve Seen This Place” and “Big Cars”) and the redemptive energies found in nature (“Balmorhea” and “You Better Know It”). At the heart of all these songs is the optimism that only comes from having survived life’s ups and downs, and continuing to dream the dream. New Black Suit is the kind of album that rewards repeated listening.

Lyrics

There’s a flow that goes from my gut to my heart
That stops in my heart when I’m sinking
A flow that goes from my gut to my heart
That keeps turning around when I’m dreaming
Dreams of long ago, friends in the park
Lighting up the night, following the sparks

Shooting for the stars
We were only kids
When every true word that you heard
Hit you where you live

They say that youth is wasted on the young
But I knew the wonder in the songs we had sung
In search of living proof
True love under the sun
But I heard the thunder in the bells we had rung
Too bad those sweet times are fleeting
When you step into the ring
You know you might take a beating

Shoot for the stars
We were only kids
When every true word that you heard
Hit you where you live

Those days came to an end
We scattered with the wind
As our fortunes did ascend To the neon and noise
Mandolin playing friend
Won’t be coming back again
He never did fit in
With the button-down boys

Shooting for the stars
We were only kids
When every true word that you heard
Hit you were you live

There’s a flow that goes from my gut to my heart
That keeps turning around when I’m dreaming
