“The song is about being in the dumps without a particular reason,” says Benny. “Things can be pretty good, but still you feel like shit. Sometimes leaving it all can be a cure. We wrote this together last year in Mac’s studio. I think Mac went out to get some coffee, and he heard someone use the phrase ‘rolled up, tossed out,’ talking about a cigarette. So that was the start of it. It felt pretty effortless, I think we both come from the same place songwriting-wise. Was a dream to work with him. A true artist.”
The latest in Benny’s long list of impressive collaborations, he co-wrote and featured on Rex Orange County’s huge bop ‘Loving Is Easy’. “Benny has always been a massive inspiration for me and my music,” Rex Orange County has said, “In my opinion he’s one of the most underrated producers and artists going.”
