Guitarist DJ Williams (Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe) and his band, Shots Fired, have released a new “visual album” on YouTube, Liftoff (YouTube Soundtracks). The surprise drop is only available on YouTube and, effective immediately, all ten tracks will be available via YouTube’s audio library for anyone to use royalty-free for their own homemade YouTube videos.
Liftoff (YouTube Soundtracks) is a 38-minute audio-visual piece consisting of vintage NASA footage including video of various Apollo liftoffs from a variety of camera angles, a space-shuttle launch, and finally, and NASA’s aerial images of Hurricane Florence. Ten new recordings from DJ Williams’ Shots Fired serves as the soundtrack to this footage.
