One of Asbury’s finest songsmith’s Moon Motel surfaced again this past week with a piece of previously unreleased music titled “We Need A Revolution”, which is more a two-minute pouring of soulful emotion than a burning protest song.

“Back in 2011 and 2012, my old band, we are. recorded our debut album,” wrote Moon Motel upon the song’s unveiling. “Our relationship ended before the album was complete and the rough mixes were kept locked away. As I pen the new Moon Motel album, I often find myself digging back to this time in my life, both in dreams and in memories.”
“It was a time which left me with unanswered questions and songs that I have a hard time revisiting,” he added. “‘We Need A Revolution’ was to be the intro track off that album. While it remains unfinished and unmixed, there is a haunting quality that will forever stay with me from a time and a memory that I will always be haunted by in my life.”
Stream the stirring bit of poetic expression below and be sure to visit Moon Motel on Friday night (10/31) at The Saint in Asbury Park where he’ll headline the Halloween Speakeasy featuring music and poetry by Master of Ceremonies Chris Rockwell, Paper Streets, The Jazz Gypsies, Nicole Greenwood, and Nathan Dickinson.
