MAN IN BLACK hit the streaming platforms (“stores”) in the wee hours this morning. It’s the first single I’m dropping into my newly created / merged “Zeek Mitchell Z” digital musical identity. Fitting in that it is a song that introduces the dark-side “Man in Black” character (Z ??), around which a number of songs within my “DARK LIGHT” compilation are written.
