British singer-songwriter RHODES has today released his brand new EP, ‘I’m Not Ok’, out now on B1 Recordings/Sony Music Entertainment. Listen to the EP in full here.
The moving and uplifting collection of songs – released five years on from his debut album ‘Wishes’ – includes the previously released singles ‘This Shouldn’t Work’, ‘Love You Sober’ and the title track ‘I’m Not Ok’. The video for ‘Love You Sober’ was completely filmed in quarantine at the start of the UK’s lockdown.
The full track-listing for ‘I’m Not Ok’ is:
1. Every Turn
2. This Shouldn’t Work
3. Love You Sober
4. I’m Not Ok
5. Love You Sober (Acoustic)
RHODES says of the new EP: “Recording ‘I’m Not Ok’ I’ve spent time with some of the greatest artists, songwriters and producers in the world and in recent months I’ve managed to find a place that, for now at least, I’m feeling good about…I’ve written songs about those moments of realisation – about hope, about love, about hurt – and those moments of clarity when you’re growing into your skin. It feels like I’m waking up and reaching out for something with open eyes and open arms.”
After releasing ‘Wishes’ in 2015, RHODES toured the world with artists including Sam Smith, Hozier and George Ezra. Following a break from music, he now returns to the industry with his new EP. ‘I’m Not Ok’ was partly produced by Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway, who have previously worked with Lewis Capaldi on his smash hit debut album, and Simone Felice, whose production credits includes The Lumineers and Vance Joy.
Together with his wife during the UK’s lockdown, RHODES has been performing a cover song every day from home to connect with his fans putting the tracks out via his social channels on Instagram TV and TikTok (@RhodesMusic) using the hashtag #rhodescoveradaychallenge.
