Third track taken from his newest collection of songs, released on 19 June 2020, ‘New Thought Leader’ is in part inspired by Mel Gibson’s role in the movie Signs, “but it’s also about the strange mythologies we write for ourselves about our own lives.”

So Joseph Hughes introduces us to his ‘New Thought Leader’, a song that has already been described as the undeniable most-prized gem of the recent album signed by that cryptic and intense signature that is artistic synonym for The Birthday Letters.

The Birthday Letters, Joseph Hughes - portrait

Meaningfully linked to the organic general vision of an encapsulating yet diffusive album, all-encompassing for the visionary and expressive opening it carries within itself, ‘New Thought Leader’ is a fluid nascent progression, which, in a time-lapse effect rendered in music, gradually hastens the slow and steady rise of a radiant star.

The smoky low-fi veil on the vocals, lying in an almost dreamy way on the locomotion of a rousing beat, escalates as leisurely as inexorably, on the thrust of an arrangement that layer by layer adds just enough to bring that star from the lowest and dusky horizon upwards, towards the brightest of the firmaments.
