Self Esteem Premieres New Single “Fucking Wizardry (Block Them Edit)” on BBC Radio 1
- British singer-songwriter Rebecca Lucy Taylor, aka Self Esteem premiered a new single “Fucking Wizardry (Block Them Edit)” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is the new version of “Fucking Wizardry”. The original version of the song is included on her sophomore album “Prioritise Pleasure”, which was released last October.
It was written by Rebecca Lucy Taylor and Johan Karlberg. Produced by Johan Karlberg.
“Here is my new single 'Fucking Wizardry – Block Them Edit',” Rebecca Lucy Taylor said of the song in a statement. “It's a song about trusting and believing in what you already know. If it feels like someone is taking the piss, they usually are. Not to be all 'you deserve better' about it but it's very likely you do, indeed deserve better.”
- She told Apple Music about the original vesion, “If I had my time again, I wouldn't put this on because I feel so overwhelmed singing it back. But it was very much where I was at when I was writing. I was in a relationship. I really, really loved him and we could have had a really good relationship, but his ex didn't leave him alone during it. I had to get a thicker skin and build myself back up and say, 'Do you know what? I'm not doing this.' I did feel really hurt. I succumbed to jealousy and fear and I didn't feel good enough. I'm embarrassed by my spitefulness, but it's also very human and it's important for me to show all the sides of myself on the record.”
