Unsung, the brand new book by Megadeth bassist David Ellefson, featuring original lyrics and images never before published, is available now for purchase through Blurb.com in a deluxe hardcover “Gift” edition, softcover high-gloss version and instant downloadable version through the iBooks app for iPad and iPhone.
Dark, light, inquisitive and inspirational, Unsung expresses a uniquely diverse side to David‘s creativity. He enthuses that “as a musician, my past lyrical work has always been set to music. But, with this new book I set out to explore a new medium using both words and images as the canvas for an exciting new mosaic of storytelling.”
Unsung is also David‘s first venture into the realm of self-publishing. As a result, he encourages the reader to utilize these original lyrics under license from him for their own songs. In this manner, song-writers of all levels can actually become a co-writer with David. This is truly an innovative way for fans and musicians to co-create with one of metal music’s most iconic and inspirational artists!
As a co-founder the rock group Megadeth, David has been a regular contributor to one of metal music’s most enduring legacies. Followers of David‘s work will be delighted that Unsung proves to be yet another unique narrative from a man who is known for creating fresh and innovative ways to inspire and connect with his fans.
