After FINALLY releasing a debut album in 2013, Travis Garland returns with “Mr. Rogers,” a hazy production that finds the singer listing his grievances with his ex girlfriend. The atmospheric track is a solid effort both sonically and lyrically, although it isn’t much of a departure from the sound we heard on his self-titled solo debut last year.
The song’s title is a nod to Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and the song samples a speech from an old episode of the popular show.
The accompanying visuals for the new release finds Garland roaming around a fair. The contrasting imagery of Garland looking angry and stressed and the bright lights of the fair festivities is pretty effective.
The video also features a brief appearance from Garland’s real-life boo, former Danity Kane member, Aubrey O’Day.
The relatable cut should definitely help Garland pick up a few new fans.
