SAL COSTA, “Lover Of A Lost Cause”
I think this one even surprised his most ardent fans.
Over a year ago, former Smashing Satellites and My Darkest Days frontman, Toronto’s Sal Costa, pretty much announced his retirement from the music business to pursue other interests and support his young family, although he didn’t totally dismiss the ideas of performing or offering new songs in the future.
So yesterday, those of us that follow one of the most genuine guys in music on Facebook got the unexpected thrill of hearing the previously unreleased “Lover Of A Lost Cause”, written with Cody Hanson and Marshall Dutton not long after Sal left My Darkest Days.
“Lover” is a completely smokin’ song which made many of us realize how much Sal’s singing is missed. It’s as powerful as Satellites songs like my favourite “Waterfall” with a simple arrangement including a backdrop of strings that really showcases Sal’s voice. Whether it will see more than its appearance on Sal’s Facebook videos page remains to be seen. However as you’ll likely conclude as well after hearing it, rock radio in North America would likely totally jump all over it.
When I commented about the song on Facebook, Sal responded and suggested that I might write about it. As you’ve read, I was more than happy to oblige! There’s another new song coming on Wednesday November 28 at 7 pm EST so follow Sal on Facebook to find out more 🙂
