slowthai has returned with a brand-new single entitled “feel away” featuring James Blake and Mount Kimbie.
Dedicated to his late brother, “feel away” is a mellow offering from Northampton’s slowthai made smoother by James Blake’s delicate vocals. The visuals are quirky and show slowthai giving birth to a baby in a manic maternity ward.
“Today is the anniversary of my baby brother passing,” Slowthai wrote when announcing the song on Instagram yesterday (September 14).
“This is one of the biggest days of the year for me and my family, and with my whole heart I can say I’ve never missed anyone as much as I miss him, I know you’re looking down on us everyday with your smile.”
He continued: “I’m doing in everything in my power to live for him and also make him proud… tomorrow i’m dropping a song featuring James Blake and Mount Kimbie called ‘feel away’ and i’m dedicating it to my little brother Michael John.”
“Rest in paradise little brother I love you more than life itself.”
