The single – released today (November 19) – marks the first time the two musicians have collaborated, and serves as Lin’s first track sung in English with a fellow Singaporean male artist.
The track carries an uplifting message that things will always get better no matter how rough it gets. “I think everyone goes through a lot of things in life and when we reflect on what really had an effect on our lives, it’s usually the relationships we have with certain people”, Gentle Bones said via a press release.
“When I heard the song, I thought there was a lot of power in the song and in the demo,” JJ Lin added.
