Kinda been an all-over-the-map day here at DC9. Not sure exactly what we're supposed to make of it, either.

Fortunately, after the jump, there's a palate cleanser of sorts: Spune Productions has put together a music player for Doug Burr, and on it, a new, unreleased track from the favorite area singer-songsmith called "Mirror Ball." We can't say for sure if this is one of the song's we'll be hearing on Burr's upcoming March release for Spune--but it'd be kind of crazy if it weren't, no? It's classic Burr: A pensive, deliberately paced effort, it goes right for the heartstrings, focusing, per usual, on Burr's uncertainty of his place in life.
