Dan Deacon has been playing the inspirational track “Change Your Life (You Can Do It)” live for awhile now, and today he debuted a recorded version along with a live video of him performing the song last summer while touring his last LP Gliss Riffer. The track was originally written for the show Off The Air at a time when Deacon was going through some pretty heavy shit. Here’s what he had to say about it:

Sometime in late 2015 a good friend and long time collaborator, Dave Hughes, asked me to write a new song for the New Year’s Eve episode of his show Off The Air. The theme for the show was ‘NEWNOW’ and it couldn’t have come at a better time for me as I was going through some pretty heavy shit at the time and was very depressed, confused and alone. The theme helped me realize I was in a transitional phase of my life and to try to pull myself together and remove the aspects of life that I was in conflict with. Writing the song became an opportunity to motivate myself to change myself. After I started writing the synth parts I realized I wanted the vocals to also be all synthetic and for the lyrics to be a series of simple but empowering mantras to motivate.

The footage was directed by Ben O’Brien
