It comes after Keith revealed his struggles during lockdown in a recent interview with The Sunday Telegraph‘s Stellar magazine.

‘We’d been in lockdown since March. I was ready to get out and do things, I poured it into that song. I still have a little PTSD about lockdown,’ he told the publication.  

‘We’re in Byron Bay now and all I can think about is [being in the studio in] Nashville not that long ago… I’m like a little caged animal timidly walking around going, “I don’t know about this freedom, this feels a little fishy.”‘
