Deaton Chris Anthony has unveiled his new song, “Good Buy My Old Life” in collaboration with BENEE. The accompanying video, directed by collaborator Justice Vaughn Ott can be seen now below.
“Good Buy My Old Life” is taken from Deaton’s forthcoming debut album SID THE KID, set for release July 29 on Dirty Hit. The album is available to pre-order/pre-save HERE.
Of the song, Deaton said, “Kansas was home for me all of my life before I moved to Los Angeles. Kansas is where I thought I was meant to do one thing and one thing only. Bowl. At the age of 12, I placed the highest score in my age group in all of Kansas. 246. I went on to become bowling captain in High School and demolished my high score with a 286 at regionals. As the years went by, I never could beat my high score. Those 14 missed pins haunted me. A 300 is every bowler’s dream! I thought bowling was my purpose but I was wrong.
Moving to Los Angeles crushed my bowling career and my life became a rat race. Becoming the worlds biggest pop star isn’t easy after all. It’s brutal. It’s war. I’ve learned so much over the years recording music but I have to be honest, these days all I can think about is bowling.
Bowling isn’t just a sport or a thing to do with your friends. It’s a lifestyle and it’s my life! Style. Where is it in bowling these days? Have you seen what the pros are wearing? Ouch. Bowling is in dire need of a rebrand. A revolution! My mission is to make bowling stylish again. Maybe even as stylish as the bowling animations on screen when you get a strike?”
