What Was Once Lee DeWyze + *edit*
Posted January 11, 2012on:
*edit* I’m also the only person who was calling it “what was once” instead of “what once was”… confusing title
Am I the only person that had no idea about this?? Probably.
Thank you Twitter for being on top of your shit.
Wuli Records is releasing a collection of new/old/you guys probably know every word songs on an album called What Once Was,which not gonna lie, depresses me a little bit. “What once was” was something I say about my awesome dead dog.
Anyway… I’m obviously OBSESSED with the album artwork. I’m gonna get it just for the cover.
Love the cartoon Lee Bear except he looks like an ostrich and not a bear, but that’s okay.
I also love the combo of the Amish beard (hey Amish heeeey!) and he skinny/high water jeans he has on. It’s a little Nightmare Before Christmas-ish but who doesn’t love a depressed skeleton names Jack who’s in love?? No one.
You can hear snippets of this HERE and it’s filled with ollllllllld school Lee. Like, there’s some sort of Spanish diddy on this, I think I heard a choir at one point, and he’s still in his Amish phase I believe, because it lacks electricity.
This album comes out February 14th so if your boyfriends/husbands/girlfriends don’t get you this for Valentine’s day… you should probably break up with them.
*EDIT* As I’m sitting here, taking the day off because I’m illin’ (not the cool kind) I received a Lee D tweet with his incoherent thoughts on this “new album”:
