Giving themselves a well-deserved pat on the back, A.Dd+ celebrate their long and arduous journey towards success with their new song “Getting Far.” Along with their long-time producer, Picnic Tyme, the duo reunited with Mz. Fortune, the soulful voice also featured on A.Dd+’s previous single, “Greedy.” “Mz. Fortune put her spin on the hook,” says A.Dd+, adding that it was her energy that “elevated the song. It made it more emotional, more heartfelt, realer.”
“Getting Far” reflects on Paris Pershun’s and Slim Gravy’s achievements, starting with when the duo first came together in 2007 and culminating with the recent release of their critically acclaimed LP, When Pigs Fly, and thus the song shouldn’t be seen as just another bravado-laden, “look at me now” cliche, but rather a humble reflection filled with deep appreciation. “The song signifies growth – we’ve come a long way since we first started a few years ago,” the duo explains. “We’ve been on one hell of a ride right this year, doing things that a lot of people where we’re from aren’t able to do, and so we wanted to give people some insight to where we started and where we’re going.”
Known for masterfully balancing between the light-hearted and the profound, “Getting Far” shows A.Dd+ at their most poignant. “I think the people who have followed us know we can make all types of songs, so we are really trying to channel specific emotions and experiences into this next wave of music,” says A.Dd+.
