Ghost Cult is bringing you the premiere of a brand new song from Shawn Perry – “Six Feet Apart”. This ode to love in the time of the pandemic is a funny and fun summertime jam. Check out the single and the visualizer here!
How this song came about was pretty hilarious. My manager, Dennis Sanders, actually gave me the idea. We were talking on the phone back in March when the pandemic shutdowns first started happening. Dennis said to me, “You know somebody should write a song called, ‘How can I love you if we’re six feet apart?’ That would be a great country song!” I said, “Dennis, I got this!” Then I wrote the song start to finish in a couple of hours. The next day we had a full demo. I usually fully demo all of my songs by myself before I even show them to the band. We got into the studio as soon as we could – which was several months later in June. The producer we have been working with shut down for safety.
We recorded the song in just SIX hours! (Eight if you count set up and tear down.) We couldn’t be happier with the way this song turned out. Needless to say, the finished product is less of a “Country Song”, but that is still in there; like all of my music, but it’s more of a genre-spanning epic power ballad that was HEAVILY influenced by two of my favorite bands: U2 and Van Halen.
I dare you to not sing along, I bet you can’t
