13 Reasons Why You Should Buy David Duchovny’s New Album Hell Or High

13 Reasons Why You Should Buy David Duchovny’s New Album “Hell Or Highwater”

I’m not going to lie. I’m a thirty-something lady who had a hugely inappropriate crush on David Duchovny back in the day. Don’t get me wrong, I still have the crush, it’s just not hugely inappropriate anymore.

If you haven’t noticed, the 90’s are back in a BIG way and Double D is reaping some of the benefits by being a part of two EPIC television revivals. “Twin Peaks” and “The X Files”.

If that weren’t enough, he’s also promoting his new series “Aquarius” for NBC (the first Network series to offer a binging option to its viewers), he wrote a New York Times Best Selling book “Holly Cow”, and just released his debut album “Hell or Highwater”.
Here are samples of the songs and reasons why you should buy the album.

1. Let It Rain



Because he writes so well about basic human feelings.

“One year’s golden and the next one blows.” Ain’t that the truth?

2. 3000



Because you can never have too many angry break up songs on standby.

3. Stars



You may or may not know this, but David Duchovny has a B.A. in English Literature from freakin’ PRINCETON UNIVERSITY, and a MASTERS of Fine Arts from (the not very well known for excellence {sense the sarcasm}) YALE UNIVERSITY!
In 1982, his poetry received an honorable mention for a college prize from the Academy of American Poets. So, if nothing else, you’re getting some solid poetry out of it.

Stars

Written by: David Duchovny

I’ve been told
That some stars in the sky
Shine a light
From stars that have died long ago
Still keep on shining in your eyes ~
I see the light
Of a love that died long ago

When the fire is dead
How can it be that the sparks still fly?
The ghost you left in my bed
Stars you showed on my empty sky
Still shine, in my head

I’ve been told
That stars in the sky…
If it’s true
That they’re no longer alive anymore
If they still keep on shining their light
So that I might find my way home tonight

When the fire is dead
How can it be that the sparks still fly?
The ghost you left in my bed
Stars you showed on my empty sky
Still shine, in my head

I will ask ~
Of the light in your eyes
The ghost of a love that died long ago
Can they still keep on shining, shining your light
So that I might find my way home
One more night tonight


4. Hell or Highwater



A lot of it is catchy as F@&K! If you’re not humming “I’ll see you all in white again” after a listen or two, you might want to see someone about your soul being broken.


5. The Things




Because sometimes he sounds like Tom Petty and Jacob Dylan (Bob Dylan’s son and also lead singer of The Wallflowers) had an awesome fully-grown 50+ year old rock baby.

*Note, a link to a performance of this song could not be found online at the time of publishing so, a sexy image of Double D has been used for your enjoyment.

*Additional Note, a link to this song has since been found, but the above picture is so dreamy, it’s staying. Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7D3NqACpuQ

6. The Rain Song





Some are a little ironic. Like this one. It’s his most “California” sounding song and it’s called “The Rain Song.” It’s beautiful, but Julio Iglesias taught us all it never rains in Southern California, duh!


7. Unsaid Undone



Some are pretty dark. They’ll be nice to have on your playlist when you’re going through a break up. Believe that! (See what I did there? ‘Cause “I want to believe” is The X Files’ unofficial mantra?)

8. Lately It’s Always December





Some are just plain lovely. <3


9. Another Year




Toe tapping tunes with a singable chorus’.

What else do you really want out of your music?


10. Passenger




New road trip anthem to break up the monotony of “Life in the Fast Lane” and “King of the Road.”


11. When The Time Comes





This song sounds like a love song from Mulder to Scully, or at least, from XPhiles to The X Files. Watch the video and feel the feels.

Srsly, the lyrics soooo fit…

12. Positively Madison Avenue



In an interview with Rolling Stone, David Duchovny said this song was inspired by a Chrysler Super Bowl commercial featuring Bob Dylan.

13. Let It Rain (Acoustic)



Because when you hear him talk about only picking up a guitar five years ago, it makes you feel like maybe, just maybe, if you work hard you can accomplish the unfathomable, too. #Inspired.

Honestly I did not like his singing voice. No offence but DD should stick to acting and writing, something he really does awesome.

I think he just wants to share his stories rather than being considered a good singer =D

He should write a book to tell his stories. I'd read that for sure.
