Alex Ebert, the front man of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, released his first solo album Alexander in 2011 and although the album received average reviews, the track "Truth" stands out. The Jesus lookalike, who enjoys performing barefoot and shirtless, gets most of his lyrical inspiration from the days he struggled with addiction. I appreciate the wisdom behind the lyrics as he sings that even in our darkness we are all beautiful. In an interview, Ebert shares that "instead of avoiding, hiding our dark sides and those of the world, we have to accept them, love them until something good emerges of them."
So if your a fan of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, or just enjoy really good music, check out this sick remix of "Truth", featuring none other than RZA (the grammy winning music genius and leader of Wu-Tang).
Stay true bitches.
