Award-winning poet and singer-songwriter Michael Jones released his new single ‘The Crossroads‘ on Friday the 13th of November. One of the only positive things that came out of Friday the 13th, ‘The Crossroads’ is an anthem all about change at a time where the world is hurting.
Taken off his forthcoming EP ‘American Poet Part II‘, which is out November 27th, Michael states that ‘The Crossroads’ is linked to his successful track ‘This is The Night’. On the track, Michael states, “These epic and changing times have brought humanity to The Crossroads. The symbolism of Robert Johnson, trading his soul for the gift of music, is woven into the heart of American folklore. We can all sense that 2020 is a transitional historical moment. The choices we make now may very well determine the fate of our collective human soul. It is from this idea that I wrote The Crossroads”.
Drawing inspirations from the likes of poets-turned musicians such as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Jim Morrison, Michael Jones is an innovative artist with a strong discography behind him.
‘The Crossroads’ is bathed in blues sensibilities, and nods to the classic legend of Robert Johnson at the crossroads. A genuine track that feels timeless, Michael Jones states that ‘The Crossroads’ reflects classic songwriters while giving a new, refreshing sound.
