The Virginia rock band Lolita has released a new song “Satellite.”
The song is a tribute to recently deceased music industry stars, specifically David Bowie, Chris Cornell, and Tom Petty. In a statement about the song, the band said:
“Satellite was written around the idea of losing mentors, heros, and the inspirational figures that helped shape who you are. Written in the wake of Cornell, Petty, and Bowie deaths [sic] among others, we felt really connected to the space they left empty when they left this earth. There’s a line in the chorus referencing them: ‘the free fallin’ ones, blackhole suns and stardust gone, you saved my life, now heavens gaining one’.”
