PopMatters Premieres Seth Glier's New Song!
Download it now on iTunes!
Popmatters shared the exclusive premiere of Seth's new song "It's A Bitch (Craigslist)". This hilarious live track, recorded at The Ark in Ann Arbor, MI on Seth's "If I Could Change One Thing" tour, is a mostly-true, unfortunate break-up story involving the popular site Craigslist.
When asked about the inspiration behind the song, Seth said, "I wrote this song with my friend Steve Seskin, and to be honest, I had no intention of writing a tune like this. I knocked on his hotel room door one morning and he opened the door and sang me the chorus. He encouraged me to "go with it" and within a few hours we had a pretty memorable song. It's all pretty much true....unfortunately."
