Known for writing ballads relevant to the present moment, he announces his newest record Pure Comedy in seemingly perfect timing. The topics of choice are clearly defined in the title track, shared below, which explores societal trends, technological obsessions, popular dependencies, and the overall state of humanity across the human lifespan.He describes this new track as a lengthy dissection of “the comedy of man”. While the images in the video seem more specific than the lyrics of the song, he tells NPR, “There’s nothing political about ‘Pure Comedy.’ Unless that’s what the viewer wants, even with all the gratuitous footage of political figures.
