It went something like this

Being happily married is not always especially motivational when it comes to writing songs. Fortunately, I have a lifetime of romantic frustration and disappointment to draw upon! This is a song that I originally started writing quite some time ago, after an intense but brief relationship that didn't end so well, but that I didn't complete until now. It's called "About a Girl". (Yes, I know Nirvana has a song with the same title. I don't think anyone is going to mistake the two songs for each other.)

Hot track.

Do you play your own drums or sequence them somehow?

Thanks! I mostly use prerecorded drum loops which I piece together and edit as needed. I did record the syncopated cowbell sound in the chorus live. (It's actually our cat Brunetta's food bowl being hit with a spatula.)
