"BLUE" is off of the SICK TO D(EAT)H mixtape, available at: http://tinyurl.com/SickToDeathSFR

"BLUE" was written and performed by Sage Francis. Music produced by Reanimator. Scratches by Buddy Peace.

Among many things, this song and video touch upon the subject of PTSD. There are many organizations and resources that are available to vets who are struggling with civilian life, but not everyone feels comfortable reaching out for help. Some people might not even know that they need help until it's too late. Just so that the information is out there, for anyone who may need it, the Veterans Crisis Line can be reached at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or via text to 838255.

Sage Francis – “Thank You (Daytrotter Session)”

Featured Release Album Cover

“Thank You” is off of Sage Francis’ COPPER GONE album. All info, package deals + tour dates at: www.tinyurl.com/CopperGoneSFR

This live version was recorded during SXSW 2014 at Daytrotter’s studio, and is available for FREE DOWNLOAD!

“We knew what Sage Francis was going to do to us when he came by the studio in Austin a month ago. We knew he was going to destroy us. We just didn’t know he was going to destroy us as much as he wound up destroying us. He’s a rapper unequaled and his new record, ‘COPPER GONE’, is a goddamned blessing, after a four year break between records. This particular song from the full session floored us. We were slack-jawed and stunned by the passionate delivery and sentiment in ‘Thank You’ and we all — Sage included — wanted to get this out into the world in front of the full session, which we will post in June. With music by Anders Parker and drums by Alias, ‘Thank You’ is a song that feels as ponderous as it feels definitive. It’s a song about a long span of time and people who mostly act out of love, though sometimes it’s strangely shown. Francis raps, ‘Thank you for the matches, for the gift of fire, for the wood and axe, for whuppin’ my ass/For the wheel even if you didn’t invent it/For the impact that you had on me/ It’s epic/Thank you for the effort, for teaching me the ABCs, even if I never make my way to Z, even if I never do for someone else exactly what you did for me, I’m gonna do my best while you rest, in peace/Thank you,’ and then we turned the lights off for the night and shut it down.” – Sean Moeller www.daytrotter.com
