The UK is on a roll with smooth music today.
Steven Bamidele delivers another slow-burner which also has a melancholic notch and a touching story behind it. He elaborates on the transformative period of his life when the song was written:
My dad has passed away, and we were in an unprecedented lockdown. Before then I was non-stop making music, trying to achieve something, to get somewhere, not wanting to just relax and take in where I was or what I had. Lockdown made me realize I have a good family, good relationship, am incredibly lucky to live the lifestyle I live, etc. Even though life is almost back at its regular pace, it was really important to learn to slow down – for me at least. In a nutshell, this song is about gratitude.
This is a follow-up single after his self-produced 2021 EP Uncrowded, released via Park The Van.
