DownTown Mystic is back with another star-studded roots-rocker. Regular readers of The Static Dive are well acquainted with the veteran New Jersey guitar-slinging songwriter, otherwise known as Robert Allen. For the last five decades or so, Robert and friends have been rocking the Garden State and beyond.

In recent years DownTown Mystic’s music has reached every corner of the globe, with worldwide radio play and music placed on over 230 TV shows and films. He has written and recorded songs with members of Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street Band and other legends of classic and roots rock. Earlier this month DTM released an all-star collaboration in honor of a superstar.

“Superstar” is the brand new single from DownTown Mystic, released worldwide by Sha-La Music Inc on October 14, 2022. The release is distributed by The Orchard/Sony Music and is available via all major streaming services. The single comes in two flavors, featuring both a ‘Guitar Mix’ and a ‘To Sir Elton with Love Mix’. 

As the title of the latter mix suggests, the song is a rocking tribute to the Rocketman. It pays homage to both Elton’s music and to his pioneering free spirit. The band kicks out a joyful rocker as T-Rex guitars and a honky-tonk piano ride a solid Jersey backbeat. Robert is joined on the track by Steve Holley (Paul McCartney, Elton John) on drums & harmony vocals, Paul Page (Ian Hunter, Dion) on bass and Jeff Levine (Joe Cocker, Hall & Oates) on keys for the To Sir Elton With Love Mix.
