FINNEAS Releases New Song “The 90s”
- American singer-songwriter FINNEAS has released a new song “The 90s” from his upcoming debut album “Optimist”.
The song was written and produced by FINNEAS. The accompanying music video was directed by Sam Bennett.
FINNEAS told Apple Music's Zane Lowe about the song, “I was born in 1997. So I was about 2 1/2 when the '90s ended. The reason I sort of picked the '90s specifically was I was a little baby in the '90s, and so there's a lot of home video of the '90s floating around in my life where I'll see home VHS camcorders. My parents look very young in this. You don't see your parents get old until you look at your parents when you were little. So I see all these home videos of my young parents. And I think also the '90s was the most modern time that wasn't ruled by the Internet. If I were to write a song about the '70s and flower power, which maybe I'll write that someday, is such a different world, such a different time. The '90s is modern with no Internet. I think there was an air of optimism that is maybe not as present today in 2021. And I think it's always important to be optimistic, but I think there was this hopeful, future-is-bright in the '90s. And I think we're right now in that period of time where there's a lot of scientists shaking their head.”
The album is set to be released on October 15, 2021. It is available to pre-order here.
Also, he embarks on North American tour in support of the album this fall. The tour kicks off at BottleRock Festival in Napa on September 3, 2021 and will wrap up at The Danforth Music Hall in Toronto on November 21, with a total of 15 shows.
