HOW TO GET RICH SEASON IS UPON US! The third part of the Naval trilogy is complete, and releasing on July 21st. And it is only fitting then, that we kick off the run of singles that will precede the release of HOW TO GET RICH VOL 3 with a song that reminds us that the most important things in life cannot be bought. Yeah, money can help, but the richest man on earth cannot buy a calm mind, he cannot buy a fit body, and he cannot buy a house full of love. “These things cannot be bought… they must be earned.”
When Naval reached out to me recently to get my assistance with the Airchat launch video (https://akirathedon.substack.com/p/akira-the-don-ft-wes-watson-losers/comments), and I told him that I was, synchronistically as one would expect, working on HTGR3, and specifically this song at that very moment, he remarked that this might have been his favourite tweet (https://twitter.com/naval/status/1660405285943668736). It’s for sure one of mine, and something I think of often, as I work hard on achieving that trinity in my own life. I hope it helps you with yours, dear Meaningwave enjoyer, and I hope you enjoy this fine new Meaningwave release.
NAVAL SEASON IS GO!
LOVE! TO! YOU! AND! YOUR! FAMILY!

“THE SLEEPER HAS AWAKENED…”
At last! It is time!
Crystalizing the wisdom of Frank Herbert’s Duniverse into a single-hour-long, sixteen-track epic musical explosion…
Four years in the making!
Recorded on multiple continents!
With vocals from beloved personality and Dune authority Danika XIX, and vocals and production from I, Akira The Don.
DUNEWAVE: ODYSSEY is both a diamond-hard distillation of the wisdom of the ages, a timeless and futuristic cosmic space trap rock opera, and a summing up of the first 5 years of Meaningwave, as concise as it is anthemic.

“DO NOT GIVE SOMEONE A STICK TO BEAT YOU WITH.”
BALANCED JUDGMENT (https://go.meaningwave.com/BALANCEDJUDGEMENT) is the latest single from the forthcoming DUNEWAVE: ODYSSEY, and the last before it drops next week!
An intergalactic space trap anthem and meditation on the terrors of the prisons man builds for himself.
“CODES AND MANUALS
CREATE PATTERNED BEHAVIOR.
ALL PATTERNED BEHAVIOR
TENDS TO GO UNQUESTIONED,
GATHERING DESTRUCTIVE MOMENTUM.”
Lyrics adapted from Frank Herbert’s DUNE novels.
