New York, NY – Scarborough, also known as Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, released new track, “Welcome To The Monkey House”, today. Released fresh off the heels of Scarborough’s debut EP, Mystified (released June 23rd), and a captivating performance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”, the up-tempo rock anthem addresses our current political climate – written, produced and arranged by Joe Scarborough. The award-winning television personality will consistently release more original music over the next several years.
The politically charged lyrics of Scarborough’s “Welcome To The Monkey House” include the following passages: Everybody’s a little crazy / In the Monkey House. The gods are drunk and we’re all too lazy/ Don’t bother breaking out. Feel the chaos in short order/ Celebrate your new disorder.Hope is lost you’re in the monkey house.
Scarborough is nothing short of prolific, with plans of releasing 200 original songs over the coming years as part of a deal with Sony/RED MUSIC, all while hosting one of the most important political shows on American television and writing a regular column for the Washington Post.
His band has played regular electrifying shows in standing-room only club settings in Scarborough’s Upper Westside neighborhood, compelling him to double down on his music mission. In late June, Scarborough performed cuts off the new EP, Mystified, to a packed house at The Cutting Room in New York City, cementing his musical debut. After listening to Mystified, you will find yourself agreeing with Billboard that Scarborough does, indeed, have chops. And, if you catch Scarborough live, you may understand why he is this year’s most surprising debut artist.
