Sharing new track ‘nhs’ alongside the news, slowthai told Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music, “It’s mainly inspired by how everyone was clapping for the NHS. I think I was and am a bit shocked that it takes this much for people to applaud something that’s been doing work for generations, to help and save lives. And be it that money is not prioritized for people like that. So when we’re there and we’re thinking about everything we don’t have, now, we spend more time to think about what we have. I wrote that, I would say on the first lockdown, and I wrote, I’d say three or four songs from the album. I don’t know, I was in a place where I just felt like, I’m always wanting more I always, like no matter what I do, it’s like you push the boat out because you think, ah, more of something is better than less, or what I’ve got is not good enough when really everything is.”

The track features on his recently released second album ‘TYRON’.
All being well, he’ll hit up a handful of smaller venues later this year.
This time last year, slowthai’s name was in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Now, on second LP ‘TYRON’, we find an artist facing his demons but coming out fighting.
A remarkably efficient job of reclaiming his own narrative.
