“It’s about realising you were ultimately the bigger dickhead in a relationship.”

Self-proclaimed global pop star CMAT is sharing new “ABBA does spaghetti western” track ‘I Don’t Really Care For You’.

“It’s about realising you were ultimately the bigger dickhead in a relationship,” she explains. “I was thinking about how superiority always insists upon itself. Good people will always think they were doing the right thing in the moment, even if their actions are terrible. I try really hard to be a good person, but I still end up being a big bully sometimes. If you ever find yourself saying something along the lines of, ‘I would love him IF…’ or ‘I would stay with you IF…’ then… you’re probably being a dickhead.

“Musically, I went to my producer Oli with the vague concept of, ‘What if this song was ABBA doing a spaghetti western soundtrack?’ and he just knocked it out of the park. I was also listening to loads of Charley Pride around that time - and the backing vocals in the pre-chorus are directly inspired by him. Rest In peace king!”
