David Ramirez “Stone Age” – Listen

David Ramirez has shared a new single Stone Age which is taken from his  album “We’re Not Going Anywhere” which comes out today on Thirty Tigers Records. The songs focuses on Trump’s wall as Ramirez ruminates about the state of the country from the perspective of Mexican heritage on his father’s side. Discussing it, Ramirez says: “I was visiting my girlfriend in London during July 4th week last year, and waking up every morning there was a lot of stuff going on here in the States. I was reading the news as far as police vs. Black Lives, violence and things like that, marches and rallies and the gay club in Orlando getting shot up. It was just strange. I found myself in a state of mourning for the country, so I started writing that song over there, thinking, ‘Maybe I should stay here.’” Honestly David, between X Factor, Brexit and the royal baby, you’re better off for now picking France. Always welcome though.
