pixie geldof drops new track sweet thing
And what a sweet thing it is...
What better way to start off the weekend than with a brand new track from i-D fave Pixie Geldof! Taken from the singer's hotly anticipated debut album, I'm Yours, and following on from her previously released tracks, So Strong and Escape, Sweet Thing is the sweetest thing you'll hear all day. Inspired by the country music she grew up listening to, it's incredibly powerful, with a strong beat, and yet somewhat haunting at the same time.
"Sweet Thing is one of the older songs on the record," says Pixie. "It's actually the first song I wrote after I signed with Stranger. I wanted something that channelled the country music I grew up listening to, something with a real stomp, and be a song you can wake up to. As soon as I heard it in the studio, with those drums, I knew it would be the opening track of the album." So turn up the volume and get lost in the music.
