The beat-driven pop-track – written by Kim, Neil and Reid Perry & Owen Thomas, with production by ARTRAT –further expands the band’s genre-defying musical style.
On the eve of the song’s release, Kim posted this passionate statement to the band’s Instagram page, detailing the inspiration and deeply personal story behind the “The Good Life”:
“THE GOOD LIFE is a story about the infidelity I experienced. I want you to know that this song was written during a toxic and incredibly difficult time in my life, but I’m singing it to you now with the voice of a woman who has completely regained a strong sense of self, rebuilt her womanhood, and is grateful to have learned so much.
The lyrics in this song are visceral and strong, just as the feelings have been. I feel empowered by them. I hope they empower you to know your value, and if you find yourself in an environment where someone makes you feel disrespected and degraded, I want you to know that you deserve so much more. It’s ok that things don’t go as planned and it’s also ok to not have a new plan yet
And for those who tell lies, who take advantage of others’ trust and dignity – DO BETTER.
