Mike REAL released his new three track S.O.S. EP back in July. Below is his letter about the project and a link to pick it up.
I WROTE THESE SONGS WHEN I WAS IN A DARK PLACE SO I STRUGGLED WITH RELEASING THIS PROJECT. BUT THEN I THOUGHT, GOD GAVE US ART FOR THIS VERY REASON! THE RAW, REAL HUMAN EXPERIENCE IS ALL THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE. I REALIZED THAT THE BIBLE IS NOT NECESSARILY ABOUT GREAT MEN. ITS ABOUT SUPER IMPERFECT MEN TRUSTING IN A PERFECT GOD. THIS INSPIRED ME TO KEEP GOING, KEEP CREATING. THAT REALLY PUT THIS PROJECT INTO PERSPECTIVE. ITS NOT THOUGHT OUT, ITS NOT FIT FOR A MARKETING PLAN. ITS JUST REAL, ITS JUST ME. SO WHEN YOU LISTEN TO IT, DONT LOOK FOR ME TO BE THE HERO(THATS COMING NEXT!!). LOOK AT ME TO BE LIKE DAVID CRYING OUT TO GOD LIKE IN PSALMS WHEN HE SAID “HOW LONG MUST I WRESTLE WITH MY THOUGHTS AND DAY AFTER DAY HAVE SORROW IN MY HEART?” I WANT YALL TO FEEL THIS PROJECT, NOT JUST LISTEN TO IT. BECAUSE OF THIS PROJECT I FOUND THAT GOD DIDNT LEAVE ME IN MY ISOLATION, BUT INSTEAD HE MET ME THERE AND GUIDED ME TO FORGIVENESS, COMMUNITY, AND TRUST. I HOPE YALL ENJOY IT, AND I HOPE IT IS RELATABLE ENOUGH TO HELP THOSE IN SIMILAR PLACES. IM GIVING YOU PERMISSION TO SHARE MY HEART, TO SHARE THIS PROJECT, AND FOLLOW ME ON MY JOURNEY. SO STAY TUNED, CAUSE ITS ABOUT TO GO UPPPP!!!!
