According to the song’s writer and lead singer, Todd Eric Lovato, “‘Sorry, Zozobra’ is a song told from the perspective of young boy trying to reconcile the festivities of the annual burning of Will Shuster’s Zozobra and his grisly, fiery fate.”

Lovato originally wrote the song while working on music to pair with his one of his father’s short stories, “Zozobra’s Great Escape,” a heist adventure about a pair of kids who set out to rescue Zozobra. “I was born, raised and currently live in Santa Fe and I relate deeply to the emotions expressed by the characters in my dad’s book,” said Lovato. “I vividly recall experiencing profound and mixed emotions as child while watching Old Man Gloom transform from a grumpy giant into a blazing heap of ashes before my very own eyes.

“‘Sorry, Zozobra’ is inspired by a harmless puppet and a wonderful community event that brings together thousands in a ceremonial release of angst and gloom,” Lovato continues. “It’s also about witches, immolation and the dark side of fire.”

Todd and the Fox’s debut was produced by ToddEric Lovato; performed by Lovato, Erik Sawyer; mixed and mastered by AndrewClick; tracked at with Jono Manson at Kitchen Sink Studios; designed by JeffAtwell and Gordon Fluke; with guest musical appearances by Lumpy, TheImperial Rooster; and supported by listeners like you.
