10-piece Afrobeat funk behemoth Big Mean Sound Machine proudly presents “Seeing the Bigger Picture,” the first single from their fourth studio album Runnin’ for the Ghost, to announce a Kickstarter campaign for raising the remaining capital needed to release the album in early 2017. Building on the success of three previous albums, Runnin’ for the Ghost captures the band’s renowned, highly-energetic and transcendent live show with the extra refinements of a studio masterpiece. Now, with the album finished and ready for release, the band is reaching out to their fans and the greater live music community to join them in their mission of rejuvenating and healing through the power of music by helping fund its release.

To get fans excited about the launch, the band has shared the exclusive premiere of “Seeing the Bigger Picture” with us at L4LM. Listen in below!

In true Big Mean style, the band is planning multiple interactive Facebook live events to take place on Saturday December 17th and the final countdown on Thursday December 29th featuring intimate in-studio broadcasts from the band, special guests, and a few other tricks they’ve got up their sleeves. Enjoy the track and find more information about supporting the release of the album via their Kickstarter campaign here.
