about

"Superman's Dead" is the second single off Jus Daze's upcoming album, "Walk Twice As Hard."* (Scheduled for release in 2013.)

"Superman's Dead" is a story of betrayal, heartbreak, lies, trust, and personal strife, where the "World's Strongest Superhero" meets his downfall and demise. "Superman's Dead" is unique, because rather than rap straight-forward to deliver the message, Jus Daze conveys the story's theme through the use of symbols, metaphors, and imagery which he narrates using a dream sequence.

In "Superman's Dead, " Daze addresses the interests of long-standing listeners, while inviting a new audience to enjoy the diversity and lyricism throughout the song. Both die-hard and brand new fans alike will wonder how much of this "dream" of "Superman" parallels Daze's real life.

Speaking of parallels, the track's musical production is as equally fitting, fusing dramatic guitar riffs with a classic hip-hop break beat over a haunting string ensemble. Each verse ends climatically by going into Rod Stewart's "Broken Dream" to accompany one of the song's themes.

What each listener takes away from this, along with each song from "Walk Twice As Hard," will be different. But all will have one thing in common: the symbols Daze poetically weaves throughout his art will give his audience a grasp to better understand Jus Daze, while also relating them to their personal trials and tribulations.

By definition, every "hero" has some sort of a downfall, an "Achilles heel" per se, but Daze's message tells us if we 'Walk Twice As Hard,' we'll be able to overcome them and succeed.... Jus Daze is proving he can and is.
