Nick Hakim’s new single “Crumpy” is a drowsy lo-fi plead for love. The artist just completed his sophomore album WILL THIS MAKE ME GOOD. He used the current global situation for direction and said this about the new music:
“for a while, I couldn’t write. I worked on new music but couldn’t find the right words. But that time was just a build-up to the three months of expression that led to this album. I hope this music will raise awareness about where we are right now. About how we are living on this planet. About how we treat our neighbors. About community. About depression. About what can heal us and what can’t. About overmedication, overstimulation and manipulation. About respecting and loving the people around us, because one day they won’t be here-or you won’t…”
WILL THIS MAKE ME GOOD follows his 2017 debut album Green Twins. He shared the album’s first video “QADIR” at the end of March. In addition to the new album coming out May 15th he appears on songs with Lianne La Havas, anderson.paak, Onyx Collective, IGBO and Sporting Life.
