“‘Baby Don’t Cut Your Hair For Anyone’ is about self-acceptance and unconditional love for oneself and others. Musically, I wanted the song to sound like the end of a hero’s journey, the final scene of the movie in my mind which is why strings were such a focus on this track. Pyotr Llyich Tchaikovsky’s music for ‘Swan Lake’ being the inspiration for the sound. It’s finally taking the step to find and have the realization of freedom from within and explore this life on your own terms without the fear and judgment from everything that traps you.” – Alex McArtor explained

‘Baby Don’t Cut Your Hair For Anyone’ is an all-embracing anthem of inclusivity, gently offering encouragement to anyone who feels painfully stifled in their self-expression. Also, the song elegantly captures a cherished bond between two friends as they endure high school experiences.

“‘Baby Don’t Cut Your Hair For Anyone’ is about freeing yourself from the Wasteland, physically or within one’s mind. Leaving the illusionary dome where your suffering is, in other terms, leaving High School, ha-ha. Realization is such a beautiful event because it’s a taste of freedom as you leave a chapter behind. This is why it was so important to make this song have such a classical string influence evoking this beautiful graceful moment of climax, opportunity, peace, and ecstasy.” – Alex McArtor explained

‘Baby Don’t Cut Your Hair For Anyone’ contains a friendship-based narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. The sentimental tune possesses cinematic string-driven instrumentation flavored with a warm alternative-rock vibration. Furthermore, “Baby Don’t Cut Your Hair For Anyone” is the second single and closing track on Alex McArtor’s upcoming EP, entitled, “Welcome to the Wasteland,” available on June 25, 2021. Also, the song follows mildly on the heels of McArtor’s previously released EPs, entitled, “Spoken Word” and “Heart Talk Vol. I.”
