After Oliver Tree declared his retirement to the world along with the indefinite postponement of his Album only a couple of weeks ago, the genre-defying artist has returned today with a heavy-hitting single called ‘Let Me Down‘ as an apology.
With his debut album 5 years in the making, Oliver Tree dashed hopes of fans who had been anticipating its arrival with the announcement of his retirement. The artists shared with fans at the time that the vision he had for it’s release could no longer be achieved due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
The song was produced with Wethan, and as can always be expected from Oliver Tree it arrives accompanied by a hysterical video that was shot with the help of friends and family. While it could be his last song ever, the song also reveals the lyrics “I will come around” giving hope that he potentially is reconsidering plans for both the album and his retirement.
Speaking on the release of the new track ‘Let Me Down’ Tree revealed ”I wrote ‘Let Me Down’ the day after I cancelled my album due to coronavirus”, further stating it is an apology of sorts, to let his fans know he feels like he let them down, and that he is sorry.
The new releases follows the singer’s acclaimed single, ‘Cash Machine’ and critically acclaimed EP DO YOU FEEL ME?, which features hit singles ‘Miracle Man’, ‘Hurt’, and the RIAA gold-certified hit single, ‘Alien Boy’.
“Cancelling the release was devastating after working on this album for five years. Even though it was completely out of my control, I felt like I let a lot of people down so I made them this song as an apology. Even if I can’t drop the album, I still want my fans to know I care about them. This week I decided to film a DIY music video in my buddy’s warehouse with the help of some close friends and family. To anyone who feels let down or hurt, I ask for your forgiveness…”
