New Release: “Outrun Evolution”
Release Date: November 5, 2021
“Outrun Evolution” was inspired by author Yuval Noah Harari’s book on humans and history, “Sapiens: A Brief History Of Humankind” and is a poignant examination of human impact on our fragile and finite planet. This song is filled with skillful power licks and impressive guitar work, but even more important are the lyrics! Thomases asks whether or not our drive to achieve progress as a species has been at the expense of everything else, including what makes us happy.
Andrew reflects: “Ever step back and look at the big picture to ponder humankind’s impact on the world we live in? In such a short period of time, humans have come to dominate all other species on our planet. Have we outrun evolution? Is our accelerating industrialization a good thing, even with the effects to our planet? Are humans happier now that we have reached the top? These are some of the questions that came to my mind when I read Sapiens:A Brief History Of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari. That book and these questions inspired me to write my latest single, “Outrun Evolution.” It is a driving rock song that highlights the issues with human domination of our world.”
We have been covering Andrew Thomases for some time, his last single release can be checked out HERE. His songs always have a profound message for the masses. Perhaps it is way past time that we don’t ignore the warnings; we need to listen!
Rock at Night says: “Love the guitar work in this song, it makes the listener sit up, shake themselves awake and listen intently to the lyrics. Andrew has been writing songs that I have been calling “legacy music.” Telling the stories that generations that come after us will need to hear. What were our generations doing as the world collapsed? What did we do that worked? Culture and civilization are in extinction phase and Andrew Thomases is singing us the warnings.“
