Listen to Skream’s Emotive New Single, “Thinking Of You”
The latest installment of Skream's legacy is just a few months away, but he's not done giving us a taste of the future. Ahead of the release of his Skreamizm 8 album, he's released a new single, "Thinking Of You."
"Thinking Of You" is a heartfelt moment for Skream that simultaneously showcases his versatility as a producer. The song was inspired by his son and the experiences Skream himself went through in high school. The U.K. electronic music icon delivers his own monologue throughout the track, accompanied by beautiful chords and immaculate breaks.
“My son was starting high school, the September of the second lockdown and I was thinking about the pressures that kids go under, especially what they went through lockdown and how life had been taken away," Skream said. "Made me think of the stresses of being a teenager, thinking about my own things that I went through when I was a teenager and all the stresses of social society when your body is completely changing. After a while I started to think this could become a song."
Skream's long and storied career has led him to become one of the most influential producers of modern electronic music. While he rose to prominence as a dubstep pioneer, he's now operating outside those boundaries and producing some of the most inspired music of his career. His forthcoming album, Skreamizm 8, is due out on September 15th.
