De La Soul is taking a break from recording to drive and get some food. Along the way they passed the bus station and someone in the car said in a tour guide voice “and to the left is the bus station where people come from everywhere to get their piece of Hollywood”. They immediately thought that would be a great song, having the entry and departure point of the story be the Greyhound bus station. A few weeks later, music from a jam session presented itself as a perfect fit for that subject, birthing the song “Greyhounds”.
“and the Anonymous Nobody” album release August 26th.
