Already viewed and shared many thousands of times on social media, Noel Johnson NDJ's new song "So Out of Style" is a songwriter's epic dream, with a lyrical sensibility best described as Beck meets Bob Dylan. Noel's captivating vocal presence lays atop a track musically rooted in an old-school, classic rock backbeat with a warm acoustic soul, a la The Band or John Lennon. The song starts off on a wry, introspective note, but quickly takes on the state of the world, concluding that the world is trying to wake up, and that surely peace can triumph, if we'd only let it!
