In a press release, the artist (real name Dominic Harrison) explained that he wrote the song “to help me stand up”, declaring that, “To me, this song is what happiness feels like. A defiant sort of happiness. Looking at yourself in the mirror and telling the sadness to fuck off and come back another day.

“I wanted this song to be a little part of someone’s day. No matter what they’re going through, they can put this on and feel a bit stronger today. That’s the vision; that’s the dream.”

He also debuted new song ‘Tissues’ at Glastonbury Festival last month – watch that here.

Tickets for the event can be purchased on the Boiler Room website.

Last month, Charli XCX has announced a new documentary called 6ft Apart, which chronicles the making of her latest album ‘How I’m Feeling Now’.

The singer-songwriter released the record in May after giving herself a strict 40-day period in which to create an album from scratch during coronavirus isolation. ‘How I’m Feeling Now’ was made with help from her fans and collaborators including A.G. Cook and 100 Gecs‘ Dylan Brady.

6ft Apart is described in a press release as depicting how the project would “become a cathartic lifeline for both Charli and the ‘Angels’ [her fanbase], and a welcome distraction for the wider music world. We witness both the artistic brilliance and mental sacrifice of Charli’s constant pursuit for innovation as she pushes herself to her limit while battling with her relentless obsession with work.”


Meanwhile, Charli XCX has spoken candidly in a new interview about living with feelings of anxiety during the ongoing coronavirus lockdown.

Speaking to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe about the making of her new album, Charli talked about how she’s been faring mentally during the coronavirus crisis.

“It’s been up and down like most things during this time: especially the first two or three weeks I was very focused, really happy. I’d found my purpose in this time,” she said in reference to her new record. “I’d found something that I loved to do and I desired to do the second I woke up.

“And then like week four and now I feel anxious, and overall I just realised this quarantine time has kind of reconfirmed something that I already knew about myself, which is that I am a workaholic… I love my job, I want to do it all the time, but [with] a self-punishing [mentality] of like work-myself-into-the-ground, can’t sleep at night, punish myself if I don’t complete things that are on my list… get angry if things don’t go the way I want.”




Damon Albarn announces Boiler Room isolation performance for this weekend

The performance comes as Albarn was due to start a new European tour showcasing ‘The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows’. The tour would have seen the star play alongside an ensemble of 14 musicians and four singers, led by conductor André de Ridder.

The run of shows was initially scheduled to begin in Brussels on May 17, with UK date to be held at London’s Barbican on May 26. The dates have been rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic, with new dates set to be announced soon.

The live-stream will see Albarn perform by himself from his home studio The Barn and marks his first live appearance of 2020.

‘The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows’ was written and workshopped in Iceland and takes its title from John Clare’s Love And Memory poem.


Meanwhile, Albarn has released a handful of new songs this year with Gorillaz, most recently with ‘How Far?’ – a collaboration featuring Skepta and late Afrobeat pioneer Tony Allen. The group shared the track in response to Allen’s death last month (April 30). A press release at the time called it “a tribute to the spirit of a great man”.
