Renowned artist Ron English’s musical project The Rabbbits has released its fourth installment on Spotify, iTunes and other digital platforms this week. The Rabbbits gives voice to English’s signature characters in the fictional universe of Delusionville. “We Are The New They” features Travie McCoy of Gym Class Heroes as the voice of Paws Wolf, a shy teenaged canine, and Rhett Miller of the Old ‘97s as the lovesick Forlorn Unicorn.
This is the fourth installment in the ongoing saga of life in the underground world of Delusionville. The first two albums, In Delusionville and Revolution, told the turbulent origin story of the creation of Delusionville, the mythologies of the early utopia before the expansion of collective consciousness, and the inevitable revolution. The third Album Elephant tells the story of The Great Orange Elephant that put Delusionville on the brink of Civil War. This, the latest installment, We Are The New They, explores the ever-growing surrealist utopia struggling with the constant influx of new characters into the once stable community.
In the multidimensional upside-down universe of Delusionville, “a beautiful wall between hopes and dreams keeps peasants and protestors from kings and queens.” Think Animal Farm-Meets-Bohemian Rhapsody and dive down the Rabbbithole into Delusionville. “If you are the us, we are the new they.”
