“Lock In” by William Beckett: Now Available to Download!

You may recall that musician William Beckett created a fantastic song for my novel Lock In (and if you didn’t, here, have a listen). The song, also called “Lock In,” really captured the mood and tone of the novel in a way that I hoped it would, and I’m happy to say that even if it were a song utterly unassociated with my book, I would still love its anthemic vibe. It’s fantastic.
I’m happy to say that William and his label Equal Vision Records have now made the song available as a single to download. You can get it through iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and through Equal Vision’s Bandcamp page. It’s also on streaming services including Spotify and Rhapsody.
My advice: Get it! One, because it’s great and worth getting on its own merits. Two, because William needs to eat, and buying the single is a way to encourage that whole crazy “eating” thing. Three, because did I mention it’s a really good song? It is.
Once again, thanks to William for making this song. It’s amazing to have it inspired by something I wrote. I never get tired of hearing it.
Sweet! I’ve been waiting for (okay, had given up/forgotten about) this! :-) I’m happy it’s available at last, and I’m off to buy it.
Is there a place I can find the lyrics? I’ve looked around for ’em a fair bit.
I like this song a lot, just waiting for a album…
Had a funny moment when I opened the youtube link in another tab so I could keep reading while I listened to it. It wasn’t really what I was expecting but that happens, and then maybe 10 seconds in a woman’s voice started talking. I’d been listening to an advertisement. Heh.
