Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly returns with one-off single ‘The Unconventionals’

Sam Duckworth only wrote the tune last Monday.

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, the alias of musician Sam Duckworth, has returned with a one-off track written and recorded within two weeks in response to turbulent times.

“I wrote the tune last Monday,” he says. “Which in this day and age, seems like it could have been both yesterday and months ago. It’s a strange timeline to be on. Collapsing empires and scrolling news.

“I got into the studio with the band the next day and we just jammed it out and had fun. There’s a lot of anger in life at the moment and sometimes the best antidote is a joyful noise.”

The one-off tack is his first material under the moniker since 2018’s ‘Young Adult’ album. He’s also used his own name for music like 2011’s ‘The Mannequin’.

“The world needs healing. It needs to hang out. It needs to dance. To laugh. To congregate,” he continues. “However this plays out, we’re all still in this together. Long live the Unconventionals.”
