Sam Wickens – Strange.24
Life’s a maze.
The powerful new single and video from Sam Wickens (top) deals with a sensitive topic close to his heart.
The singer/songwriter from Bangor, County Down, says:
“It’s a song about the acceptance of recovering from a battle with mental illness; the feeling of something changing within my life and trying to accept that it is actually happening.
“After fighting with mental illnesses for such a long time, the possibility of it leaving was a complete myth to me. Life without deep hopelessness seemed strange to me as I was accustomed to the black hole that was my normality.
“Just as you would need to get used to living in a new home, I had to get used to living as a person that was no longer mentally ill. This song was a therapeutic way to help me move on with my recovery.”
Strange.24 follows on from last year’s album All I’ve Seen and is the lead single from his EP Watson, due next February.
Sam plays The Workman’s Club, Dublin, on April 1, 2021.
Nick says: Sing it Sam.
