“There’s some reason for everyone to hate me in this song… and maybe a line to find vindication, as well,” says Jerry Joseph of the fourth single from The Beautiful Madness. Filmed in Israel, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Palestine, Cambodia, Thailand, India, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Brazil, Australia, Mexico, New Zealand, Germany, Iraq, Jordan, and the USA.

Composed in Sulaymaniyah, Kurdistan, under the skeletal structures of unfinished skyscrapers, Jerry Joseph reflects on marriage ten-years-in, when “perhaps the passion and even the attraction comes and goes, but you are all in as a partnership—kids and house and looking at the end run together.”

“It’s simple, the lifetime of loved ones, bouncing around like echoes in our blood and brains and muscles and hearts, nothing more,” says Jerry Joseph of the second single from The Beautiful Madness.

Thanks & Praises
Jerry, to me, is a cult figure who could, in some alternate reality, have easily been one of the biggest stars in the world. One of the greatest live performers I have ever seen and has long been one of my favorite songwriters.
I met Jerry Joseph almost twenty years ago, and I was immediately moved by his ability to write unflinchingly about the darkest aspects of human nature. Jerry is a true documentarian of the dark side, and he has the songwriting skills to pull it off.
