Remember two weeks ago when I said that I was a little busy during this current lockdown period but that I'd try to have something written up for this time next week. Well... turns out things got really busy. Things got really busy and really crazy in my life and I had to miss last week's post. Slight apologies for that one. We're back on track for this week however so here's something exciting: a new song.
I wrote this song called Future Role. I have my dear friend Stella Farnan singing on it.
I wrote the song back in lockdown #2 in August last year. It's all about wanting to shake off your passive role in society and wanting to actively create a difference that will make a better future. I wrote this song when I was anxious and existential about my own future and pondering what I was going to be like in 5 years. Hopefully I'll be a force of good!
Anyway, I thought it would be a wonderful idea to film Stella and I performing the song in a car. Soren's car. While Soren was driving. And Sydney recording and filming.
So... what do you think? Do you like it? Do you not? I think Stella sang incredibly well that day - this performance in particular. I found myself struggling to get the chords consistent and correct in this performance and I HATE what I was wearing. But let's let bygones be bygones, shall we?
I'm incredibly excited to formally announce that Future Role is coming out on Thursday July 8th. I can give you a presave link here so that it appears in your playlists or something here:
However I do think you should follow me on Spotify or Apple Music or whatever you consume music on and it should pop up on July 8th. Maybe mark it in your calendars. That'll help.
Anyway, love you all! Look out for each other please.
