Schoolkids Records (Retail & Label)

2024 release. Fifty years after Don McLean's seminal release, American Pie, Don headed into the studio to record new original tracks for American Boys. Don had not thought he would do another original album, but the pandemic hit us all, and he had time to consider and write. American Boys was conceived with the help of Vip Vipperman, Mike Severs, and many musical friends. Much like McLean's American Pie and it's nostalgic shift of music from the '50s through the '60s, along with subsequent releases confronting other socio-political flaws within America, American Boys also examines the severedness within the country, it's injustices, inequality, and more. True to his artistic nature, Don delivers a thoughtful record.
