The tracklist for ‘poems of the past’ is as follows:

‘im used to it’
‘ill come back to you’
‘a world of chaos’
‘popular girl, typical boy’
‘death bed (feat. Beabadoobee & Blink182) – bonus remix’
In a recent interview with NME, Powfu discussed the inspiration behind ‘death bed’.
“I don’t really get influences from artists; but I did watch a lot of romantic movies that were inspiring me to write about deep, romantic stuff,” he explained. “When I write songs, I usually come up with a story first in my head of what I want to write about.
“So I was listening to Beabadoobee’s lyrics and I was just thinking of films that were romantic – The Notebook was probably the main inspiration for it, to be honest. It just got me in the feels, and I was just writing down everything I’m feeling.”
