Henny Blanco – Flight Risk (Official Video)
Speaking about the new offering, he said, “Be Somebody is a song about me having a conversation with my teenage self. At the time it was written, I was 24 years old living in my parents house and musical directing bar mitzvahs. I’m pretty sure I texted my mom to get more cereal before walking into the session to write it, lol. I made this with Ryan Linvill and Noah Conrad and the intro to the song is a clip used from a snoring app that recorded me sleep talking to my wife.”
