Cavetown announced that he has an upcoming EP on the way titled Man’s Best Friend. To celebrate, he gave fans the first puzzle piece to the project, the new single“Ur Gonna Wish U Believed Me.”
The Tragic Story of “Ur Gonna Wish U Believed Me”
“Ur Gonna Wish U Believed Me” is a peaceful indie pop song that contains melancholic, nostalgic, and bittersweet themes. Cavetown expresses feeling pain, being hurt, and having people not believe that it’s true. He is accompanied by an acoustic guitar and foggy wisps of his voice. “You’re gonna wish you believed me. God, I wish I was happy. The fraying threads of recovery. Crushing me from above and underneath,” he sings. It’s beautiful – however, it’s emotional.
In the accompanying music video, Cavetown shows that he is being convicted for a crime that he didn’t commit – kidnapping animals! The real criminal is set free, though, hence the lyrical declaration, “Ur gonna wish u believed me.”
Cavetown talked to Melodic Magazine about the new song, “It’s about when you’re desperately asking for help, but made to feel like you’re not hurt or ill enough to get the assistance you need,” he says of the song. “Feeling like anywhere you go for help, you are made to feel like it’s just attention-seeking behavior when you’re actually in a lot of pain.”
Check Out Cavetown’s Merchandise And Upcoming EP!
“Ur Gonna Wish U Believed Me” arrives only two months after the release of Sleepyhead (Extras.) This album had featured fifteen original songs, including four demos that didn’t make the initial 2020 release of the album.
In addition, Cavetown just announced on Instagram that his new merchandise is out now, too! Every order includes a free postcard and orders over $30 will include a free kazoo. He also shares that one dollar from every water bottle order is going to The PCRF to help people in Palestine. Also, a relevant and kind donation!
Man’s Best Friend, the EP, is set to release on June 4. There is no information about how many songs will be included in the project, but hopefully, more details come to light soon!
