If “Forever” was Dubuc’s optimistic, funk-filled excursion across soul, house, disco and R&B terrain, and “One Of Us” was a much darker, dystopian love story warning us of how far technology can push us as humans, then “Back To Life” stands for a renewed belief in a greater and deeper love that reveals itself after one has been tried by fire and has come out the other side. The title track also sees the return of Nile Rodgers and his unmistakable guitar sounds, as well as on single, “What Love Is”, a combination that continues to provide the extremes of Dubuc’s beloved musical reference points. “Don’t Fuck With My Money”, the first single, signifies a resilience to keep chasing your passion even after music industry obstacles constantly challenge your livelihood. “Dying For You” supplies another reoccurring cast member to the Mystery Skulls experience, with Snowblood featured in this pledge of eternal loyalty. This third full-length, “Back To Life”, takes on the future with an open heart, with statements around dreams, challenging the listener to consider whether it’s one day or day one, and what we do today is what matters most.
Mystery Skulls is set to release his third full length, “Back To Life” in April 2019.
