The Homeless Gospel Choir, the musical moniker of songwriter Derek Zanetti, shared a brand new single "Don't Compare" available everywhere now from A-F Records.
"Don't Compare" marks a drastic shift in the sound of the Pittsburgh, PA-based songwriter's long-running project and offers a preview of what's to come from The Homeless Gospel Choir's next full-length. The song is kinetic blast of power-pop hooks and shout-along punk energy that perfectly captures the band's exciting sonic evolution while maintaining Zanetti's distinct ability to blend unabashed earnestness with a touch of tongue-in-cheek humor. Zanetti explained the song's meaning:
"This song is about how the Internet devalues your humanity and forces you to become something that you’re not through marketing and advertising. In many ways it's like a perpetual high school bully who's always telling you'll never measure up. It also serves as a reminder that being you, even if it's unpopular, is way better than faking it to be someone else."
