Anthony Raneri, renowned frontman of rock band Bayside, has released the video for “Sorry State of Mind,” the title track off his new album. As his second solo record, Sorry State of Mind showcases an array of different musical influences from pop and country to indie and electronic.
“I have always felt that a good song is a good song whether it’s dressed up like a country song, punk rock song or show tune,” says Raneri. “That’s what I’ve done with Bayside for years. Take different styles of music and dress them up as punk rock. A lot of Bayside songs started out sounding more like show tunes and folk songs and we put a different spin on them. With the solo music, I let the songs stay where they originate.”
The album, out on June 30th, blurs the lines between all of Raneri’s different influences. For a sneak peak at what that means, check out the “Sorry State of Mind” video below:
