The String Cheese Incident & Tony White Share ‘All We Got’ Single
The String Cheese Incident unveiled a new single entitled “All We Got” featuring guest vocals from longtime collaborator Tony White. Multi-instrumentalist Michael Kang wrote the band’s third single of 2019 with bassist Keith Moseley and singer-songwriter Jim Lauderdale.
The genesis of “All We Got” dates back to a writing session held in 2017 in Carbondale, Colorado. After performing the song a number of times live earlier this year, the band took “All We Got” to their Sound Lab facility and came out with the studio version of the funky tune, which nods to “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk. “We did a couple of other tracks that were very much like electro Afro-funk and knew we wanted to do another one like that,” Kang told Billboard. “We started with the bass line, then the chorus part and we wanted to do a real nod to the EDM world as well. So we put all that together into this track.”
Kang’s chat with Billboard made it clear the group will continue to release singles for the near future. “Sometimes it takes a long time record and release an album,” Michael explained. “You’ll be playing these songs but it takes a while to get (the album) out. It’s arduous. This is the antidote to that process. It’s more important for us to just do the songs and get ’em out there and get the fans listening — the sooner the better.”
The String Cheese Incident continues to celebrate their 25th anniversary throughout 2019. Billboard’s article included the news Cheese will release a commemorative photo book later this year. Watch the video for “All We Got” below:
