Yesterday (February 25), Slowthai shared a brooding new video for ‘TYRON’ track ‘ADHD’. “When I made this album it was one of the darkest points of my life,” Slowthai told The Offical Charts Company while receiving his trophy for Number One album in the UK.
“I was heavily depressed, I had thoughts of suicide. To be honest this album and everyone that took part, and all you guys helped me out, boosted me up and lifted me.”
Reviewing ‘TYRON’, NME wrote: “The album was largely written in lockdown, a lonely enough time even when you aren’t persona non grata. So it makes sense that the result should be a deeply moving, melancholic – but never self-pitying – record about shame, defiance, childhood, adulthood, mistakes and, ultimately, forgiving yourself.
“To quote the bruised part two track ‘nhs’: “All the best shit’s got scratches on the surface.” On ‘TYRON’, Slowthai roars.
