slowthai Announces New Song “Feel Good”

slowthai recently announced details of his third studio album UGLY with the first track from the record, “Selfish”.  Having just had its first play as Clara Amfo’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1, he now shares another – the insanely catchy, serotonin hit of “Feel Good”.

One of UGLY’s themes is the irony of life. “Feel Good” (with backing vocals from Shygirl) is actually not about feeling good and happy but about not being happy, and needing something – like the insistent rampaging energy of this song – to up the mood, flip the story, set your day off in a better direction. A song for when you don’t feel good, for when your mood is at a low ebb, it’s a mantra to chant with a bounce to stir your bones, wake your mind and get you back on track with living (and loving) your life.

If the song itself doesn’t do the trick – just watch the video. Devised and directed by THE REST, Ty’s long term creative collaborators, Ty did a call out to fans last year to be in the video for an upcoming single. Of the 4.2k UK submissions received (in 4 days), 35 were selected. Heading to their homes across the country (family bedrooms / student halls etc) – the fans were filmed on a one shot, one take basis listening to ‘Feel Good’ for the very first time to capture their response – but with an added surprise thrown in for good measure. All heart-busting reactions are all real.

Last week slowthai also announced his first headline shows in a year going from the 5,000 capacity Brixton Academy to the 150 capacity The George Tavern pub in London, he’s taking it back to basics and running up 6 intimate shows in local pubs and venues across the country.
