Listen To Trey Anastasio Band Debut Newest Original In Charlotte
Last Thursday Trey Anastasio continued a tour with his Trey Anastasio Band outfit for a show that as reported included a pair of debuts for the group. While “Tide Turns” had been performed in the past by Phish, the other debut was a completely new original. Taper audio of the show from The Fillmore in Charlotte has finally surfaced, allowing us to hear the song seemingly called “Come Together.”
Anastasio’s newest original is based around a riff that is similar to the one at the heart of the Phish song “Steam.” Trey laid down the riff and then the band picked up on it allowing the guitarist to focus on leads. “Come Together” has a positive message about being “tired of our senseless fight” and urges listeners to “rise up” and “come together” as “I’m a part of you and you’re a part of me.” The song comes to a climax with a potent guitar solo as the TAB horns vary between harmony vocals and a powerful horn line.
“The biggest problem with that song is that I still don’t know what to call it because I can call it ‘Come Together’ but that’s kinda taken by that other song,” Anastasio said in reference to the Beatles hit. “Then I thought, what the hell, maybe I should just call it ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ or ‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand’ so you decide! Call it what you will.” When an official recording of the show was posted on LivePhish.com, the track with the song was titled “Come Together.”
