Slightly Stoopid - The Prophet

Slightly Stoopid’s new album Meanwhile… Back At The Lab is out now and they recently released a music video on EW for the awesome song “The Prophet.” It’s probably the best song they’ve done since “Sweet Honey.” The video screams Sublime and with good reason, since the song was written back by Miles who was collaborating with Brad Nowell when the band was on Skunk Records. Watch the music video below:

Written by the band’s co-frontman/bassist/guitarist Miles Doughty when he was 16 years old, “The Prophet,” started as an early collaboration with the late Bradley Nowell of Sublime, while the group was signed to his Skunk Records. Coming full circle, the video for the song concludes with never-before-seen footage of a living room jam session with Doughty and Nowell (as well as a dedication to him as the band’s friend and mentor).

“It was cool going through the old VHS tapes and finding the original ‘Prophet’ jams from my pad,” said Doughty. “To see the journey the song has gone through to get where it is today… I think Brad would be stoked! We miss him and his music. We owe a lot to Brad and Miguel for believing in us kids from Ocean Beach. His music lives on.” Nowell than recorded an early version of the song called “Ain’t No Prophet” which was released on Sublime’s posthumous Everything Under The Sun raritiesbox set. The composition was reimagined once again by Slightly Stoopid during their Meanwhile…Back At The Lab studio sessions.

The band is still on tour and you’ll be able to catch them in NYC this week!
