Lt Headtrip: Stone Palace

NY’s Lt Headtrip returns with a new video for his 2017 track Stone Palace. Stone Palace is the result of Headtrip shifting from sleeping on couches to having his own home and the feeling of sudden isolation that came with the move. As Headtrip himself said, “This song details my struggle to find a middle ground between self-care and outward compassion.” The track is lifted from Comedy of the Filthbeast, which is available to download now.
