Phillip Donald Uber Friend

Uber Friend is the second single from Phillip’s long-awaited sophomore album, Break Loose. Uber Friend was inspired during the Covid-19 lockdown when Phillip rarely left his house and relied on Uber Eats and other food delivery services for his meals. This is a sentimental song about Phillip’s friendship with a particular Uber Eats driver.

New Phillip Donald Album Announced!

10 years following the release of his debut album, ‘Such a Good Ugly Thing’, Phillip Donald is back bigger and better than ever with his new release ‘Break Loose’.

The title track was released as a single in December 2018 to commemorate the 100th episode of the SmorgShow Podcast. In the song, Phillip reflects upon his brief time in prison following an incident involving ‘lewd behavior’. After performing the song live on episode 100, Phillip had planned to continue writing for his follow-up album. However, in 2020 he was forced into lockdown due to COVID-19 where his creative juices exploded on paper and wrote the remainder of the tracks from the lens of isolation. “Break Loose” is every bit the concept album on the level of Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ and the Who’s ‘Tommy’.

The next single from the album, Uber Friend, is scheduled to be released in July 2021.

Break Loose – Phillip Donald


Phillip Donald has completed his first new recording in 6 years. The song ‘Break Loose’ was written during Phillip’s 6-month stay in a federal penitentiary. Phillip was convicted of lewd public behavior in April 2018 and was sentenced to one year in prison. Phillip was released on parole 6 months early and came out to perform his song for the SmorgShow gang on their 100th episode.

Lyrics:

I’m not the kind of guy you think I am

Sophisticated all around I even roast yams

So don’t you say I don’t have class

I’m not the roaming creep that they say I am

Don’t make your accusations just because I drive a van

They took my every pound of dignity

How many times do I have to say

It’s not me that you should be taking away

I’ve got three bags of candy still left inside

But officers are clear about taking bribes

Chorus

Why is it a crime if I decide to share my smile with you

Here I wallow in my thoughts

Just hoping I will soon break loose

***

I never even got the chance to explain

Now there’s local news alerts and orders of restrain

How will I ever tell my mom?

I’m sleeping on a bed with no lumbar support

Breakfast lunch and dinner here are really a bore

Tallies on the wall and lyrics to this song

Hoping that I won’t be here for long

Chorus

Why is it a crime if I decide to share my smile with you

Here I wallow in my thoughts

Just hoping I will soon break loose

Hide and Seek by Phillip Donald


Phillip Donald’s New CD, “For the Kiddies” will be released this fall.  In the meantime, enjoy the brand new single “Hide and Seek”.

This is the first original work from Phillip Donald since 2011’s classic “Such a Good Ugly Thing“, which debuted at #671 on the Bulgaria pop charts and yielded such hits as “Revenge Time”, “Shut Your Face” and “I’d Rather Eat All Day”.  Now Phillip has returned to the scene with a collection of children’s songs which will certainly join the ranks of other classics by Peet Seeger, Woody Guthrie, and Burl Ives.
