Singer/songwriter Chris Cubeta has shared new single “I’m Tired Of This“ along with the song’s accompanying music video. The track, which features strings from Rob Moose (Phoebe Bridgers, Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver) comes from Cubeta’s forthcoming new album APOE, due out April 7th, 2023.
Cubeta shares about the single”
‘I’m Tired Of This’ it’s a song about realizing that my life is probably more than half over. It’s also about recognizing patterns in the way I live and trying to change them as I grow older (with varying results). What really makes this song special for me is Rob Moose on strings. He’s one of the most inspiring musicians and collaborators I’ve ever worked with, and watching him create and perform the string arrangement for this song is one of my all-time favorite moments in the studio.
A longtime Brooklynite, Cubeta has honed his craft for nearly 20 years as a songwriter, musician, and part owner of Studio G Brooklyn, one of NYC’s largest recording studios. During that time, he has collaborated with, Produced, and engineered songs and albums for multi-platinum recording artist A Great Big World, Michael Stipe, Jason Mraz, Jukebox the Ghost, and Emily King to name a few.
APOE, which takes its name from “a genotype implicated in Alzheimer’s disease,” stems from a place of personal discovery for Cubeta. Since his mother’s diagnosis at the young age of 57, Cubeta has been examining how memory impacts and shapes us.
The last 5 or so years, I’ve been in therapy almost every week and a lot of the time I spent was focused on writing music and where it comes from. I’m confronting things about my childhood that have led me to be the person I am, and conversely discovering a lot about the person I want to be.
APOE was almost exclusively written, recorded, mixed, and performed by Cubeta, aside from a few key contributors. Cubeta’s longtime friend Gary Atturio aided in recording and Production.
