808's & Heartbreak

This Song: Mobley (rerun)

Austin songwriter, producer and one and band Mobley has a new project coming out on April 27th called Fresh Lies Vol. 1.  In it he explores his relationship, as a black man, with the United States through the metaphor of a romantic relationship. This is the first volume in a career spanning song cycle.

Listen as he describes how Kanye West’s “808’s & Heartbreak” showed him how powerful and freeing vulnerability could be and why he felt compelled to explore his relationship with America in his work.
