Watch their star-studded karaoke video here. Escondido’s sophomore album Walking With A Stranger – available today on CD & LP – retains their southwest fantasia, swirling trumpet, and slow-motion reverb, the approach has changed. “Our first record was lightning in a bottle,” says James. “This time around was a hibernation so we could dig into the arrangements and sounds.”  The result is a complex landscape ranging from the aggressive noir of “Footprints” and “Heart is Black” to the love lost ballad “Try”Greyson Chance released his new EP Somewhere Over My Head today. A departure from his previous albums, Somewhere Over My Head showcases his mature sound and range drawing from R&B, funk, and jazz influences.
