Revival: Composer Michael Penn (“No Myth”) Is Back with His First Song in 15 Years, Beautiful Ballad “Revival”


Michael Penn is back. Composer of movie scores, producer, husband of Aimee Mann, Penn hasn’t had an album out in 15 years. But he says on Twitter “During the pandemic I’ve been writing songs again. The first one I recorded is out today.”

“Revival” is a beautiful anthem. Can’t wait to hear the rest of what he’s done.

You may recall Michael’s 1989 hit, “No Myth.” If you don’t know it, this is called a perfect single.
