Ever since Rooftop Comedy released her debut alum Bombshell in 2011, we’ve been very fond of Kelly MacFarland’s quick wit and easy-to-love approach to comedy. Which makes us damn pleased to hear MacFarland will release a new album in the new year! On Jan 13, 2017 MacFarland will drop You Woke Up Today, once again through Rooftop Comedy.
Life for MacFarland has changed since we last met her on a comedy album. Tales of dating have now turned into stories about life as a newly married woman, becoming a stepmom, boozing and finding inventive scenarios in which your children could die. Which brings us to the exclusive preview track we have for you below! It’s the title track from You Woke Up Today. We’re sure you’ll find it hilarious, powerful and inspirational. You Woke Up Today will be available wherever digital albums are sold.
