Utilizing what was originally a Sabzi instrumental by the name of "The Picture of My Delorean Gray" from Common Market's 2009 The Winter's End EP, "John Delorean" reaches back in time, via Pachelbel's Canon, to speak on what Geo would do if he could do the same.
"Think about it," he said. "With time travel, you actually have the capacity to secure any other super power you wanted. For example, if you wanted to fly, you could just travel to a future time where personal flying technology was developed and bring it back. Now you have the ability to fly AND the ability to travel through time."
After hearing this explanation I changed my answer to time travel as well.
"Also," he continued with a chuckle, "you could hear a really dope song and then go back 4 months and just write and release it before that artist did hahaha."
The actual content, of course, is heavier, ultimately more about the time between "then" and "now" than hypotheticals and what-ifs. And Geo ends the song with a similar twist to the "come back to Earth" theme of "Paul Valery": "I'm coming back to the now--no turning back around."
The Scholars' Kickstarter campaign stands as an indicator of what can be accomplished in the new era of independent music business--a fluid future for artists with a fanbase that affords them the presale support to actually make an album. And with fewer than three days remaining, the duo's already surpassed twice their $25,000 goal from more than 1,900 backers. In this instance, a pledge of $10 or more gets you a copy of the album well ahead of its June 14 release date--and in addition to the newly added snazzglasses, other options include a limited vinyl double-LP and other limited-edition collectibles. The clock is ticking.
