“When I was a kid I was convinced that no one could understand what I was going through and feeling, I was embittered and angry,” Cola Boyy explains. “The song is me explaining to my younger self to let go of worries about people staring or not understanding. Everyone has their struggles, and problems that shape them.”
“This track is the culmination of a true friendship,” he continues. “In 2018, MGMT invited me on their tour, during which we became very close. I spent time with Andrew in his studio at home in New York. When I played him ‘Kid Born in Space’, he liked it straight away and everything happened naturally from there: James Richardson played guitars and keyboards, Patrick Wimberly (Chairlift) engineered and refined the production, and then Andrew and I finished it up in LA. I am really grateful to them.”
