Today, Indie-Rock singer-songwriter Freddie Mercer releases a brand new single titled 'Place In The Sky'.
Place In The Sky is a lockdown-inspired cry of freedom:
"Will I find my place in the sky,
When I don't feel I'm even alive
But I can still hear this rhythm inside
Oh honey this fight is breaking my mind"
Raw arrangements and poetic lyricism cleverly used to describe that nostalgic feeling we all had in the past couple of years.
Freddie Mercer says: “This song manifested itself on the piano in lockdown and represents the anxiety and frustration that I was feeling at the time. It began as a Thom Yorke’esque vocal above some punchy piano chords I was hitting hard and then I then took it to my engineer/co-producer and we fleshed it out with the band in the studio; the beat came next as the backbone of the song and then the wicked sounding guitars driving alongside it...it was ours and now it’s yours, Freddie X”
