“I want ‘Get Me Higher’ to be the anthem to lift us up out of lockdown,” George said in a press release. “In a way this song sort of fell from the sky at the perfect time and I want to see people dancing to it in the street, in their cars, up in the clouds or wherever they are because this song is about so much more than just having a boogie- it’s about freedom!”
David Jackson added: “Making ‘Get Me Higher’, we wanted to create something that embodies that carefree feeling of running back out into the world, hugging your friends, and dancing like nobody’s watching. It’s like a primal scream that makes you realize we’re at the end of this long dark tunnel, about to re-enter the dreamscape we once called reality. Pure euphoria, pure love!”
‘Get Me Higher’ follows Georgia’s Mercury Prize-nominated 2020 album, Seeking Thrills. A special limited 12″ EP titled Seeking Thrills (After Hours) was recently announced as part of Record Store Day 2021.
