Metropolis video coming next week!
New video for ‘Metropolis’ coming soon!
The more I create music and chase the high I get from it, the more I realize the worst thing you can do is become a prisoner of your own style. To do so places you under a tyranny of self-dependency to ultimately sustain yourself which is impossible, and without innovation or regeneration, artistry becomes a black hole — joyless and insipid.
I’m learning to tear down and deconstruct everything I think I know about music before writing a new album and there is a real beauty in feeling no need to attempt a continuation or extention or follow-up to any body of work previous. At the onset of another new chapter, I realize it has become harder to satisfy the inner craving I have for a melody that feels good to me. Because “experience” is full of its own pros and cons, it’s harder to capture something that makes me feel like I’m floating three feet above the ground — yet the astounding thing is that when I discover a new vein of inspiration through experimentation and exploration, I realize there are indeed infinite melodies I’ve not thought of that give me the high I long for. And through reinventing one’s approach, there is suddenly more beauty and splendor and grandeur than ever before because it’s all in how you look at it — entire songs in the same chords I’ve played over and over and I’ve not looked at them this way until now.
Regardless, the thing that makes me excited is the knowledge that there is all sorts of magic just waiting for someone to fall in love with, waiting to be unearthed, and I have the immense privilege of digging it up.
Hi, I’m Adam Young and this is a heel flip.
You do not lose your own personality when by faith you take your place with Christ in death. On the contrary, a transformation takes place within your personality. You simply come under new management.
“Therefore if any person is ingrafted in Christ, he is a new creation; the old, previous moral and spiritual condition has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come.” 2 Cor 5:17
This new life which has begun is the Life of Jesus and your personality becomes His means of expression. He is “all the while effectually at work in you, energizing and creating in you the power and desire, both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.” Phil 2:13
When you are prepared for the Lord Jesus Christ to change your heart, you will not want to be anyone else. You will be far too excited discovering what He intends you to be.
