“Burn” is the second single from Hess is More’s forthcoming album and it’s a twisted homage to Talking Heads’ “Burning Down the House.” This song maintains the upbeat tempo but creates a track that simulates a rock lullaby that surprises you with his soothing-sounding chorus. David Byrne’s nonsensical lyrics are replaced by a matter-fac-story, giving permission to “burn down our house as long as you let me know in time to get my stuff out.” Over- the-top empathy for aggression reminds us that Hess is more Zen than Zorro. Full length album is expected October 11, 2011.
