The day before I wrote this song,
someone asked me when I might be able to start gigging again. The
thought of playing live to a room full of people genuinely gave me goosebumps. I was keen to have a
track with that kind of energy, something that would feel incredible to sing with a crowd.This is the song that I wanted to play live for the first time in a sweaty venue, with a sweaty band to a sweaty crowd, just like old times.
After living with these rules and restrictions for so long, we all inherited a social cautiousness. We
became stuck in this strange limbo, waiting for things to get back to normal. During the depths of
another lockdown, I realised how much I’d taken the freedom to be spontaneous for granted.
