GRAMMY® Award-winning musician, songwriter and producer FINNEAS has shared his powerful new track, What They’ll Say About Us.
Written during the COVID-19 pandemic while the musician was on lockdown, the hopeful song is an ode to human strength and connection when coming face to face with the hardships of life. The track harks back to earlier music from Snow Patrol, with soft warm tones paired with honest, raw and conversational lyricism.
Of the release, FINNEAS shares: "I wrote this song in June after spending the day at a protest in Downtown LA, filled with hope with the prospect that millions of people were coming together from all over the world to fight against institutionalized racism and inequality. During that time, I’d also been following Amanda Kloots as she documented her husband Nick Cordero’s time in the ICU while in a coma after being admitted for COVID-19. Imagining her sitting by his side, waiting, hopeful for him to wake up, it got me thinking about all the millions of people, all over the world, who also have loved ones, parents, children and extended family members going through the same thing. Fighting this horrific virus. Some will over-come and wake up again, while others, tragically may not. This song is dedicated to all who have had to endure this year. I hope this song can offer some sort of comfort to those who may need it.”
Last year, the musician released his debut EP, Blood Harmony. The critically acclaimed EP was recently re-released, including a pre track and a re-working of fan favourite, Let’s Fall In Love For The Night. In January this year, FINNEAS took home 6 GRAMMY Awards® including the prestigious Producer of the Year, Non-Classical and Best Engineered Album, Non Classical as well as Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year for his work with with his sister Billie Eilish on her No. 1 debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? and chart topping single bad guy.
