Music Regram: Nate Ruess' Handwritten Lyrics for "Great Big Storm"
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:00:39
Nothing like a little pen-to-paper.
We live in the digital age—somewhat begrudgingly and somewhat happily. We are all attached t our phones like electronic handcuffs. We know. That's not any sort of news alert or big reveal right there. It's our reality. So we were stoked when fun. frontman Nate Ruess, who released his solo album Grand Romantic, gave away a copy of the hand-penned lyrics to his song "Great Big Storm."
He shared an image of the lyric sheets on IG.
That is some prize for a lucky fan and even though we are not in possession of said lyric sheets, we are still happy to gawk at them.
It was amazing to us, since we hardly get the chance to see that intimate of an image. It's much more immediate than anything typed out on a keypad, with lots of typos and errors, since it was done on a smartphone! Ruess created a handwritten page with the lyrics and we absolutely love it.
Again, he gave the handwritten lyric sheets away as part of a contest, but we're stoked about seeing the words in such a raw format.
Go ahead and have a look.
Not everything has to be all-digital, all of the time.
'Grand Romantic' by Nate Ruess is available now on Fueled by Ramen Records.
