Charlie Hickey has shared ‘Choir Song (I Feel Dumb) 2.0’, a reworked version of a track from his debut album Nervous at Night, which arrived earlier this year via Saddest Factory Records. He’s also announced he will be supporting label boss Phoebe Bridgers at London’s O2 Brixton Academy on July 28. Listen to ‘Choir Song (I Feel Dumb) 2.0’ below.
“There have been many iterations of this song since we wrote it,” Hickey explained in a press release. “This one came before the current version and was almost the album version. Everyone we played it for either loved it or hated it, which means to me that we succeeded at something. We indulged our love for hyper-pop and glossy, commercial emo and ended up making something that sounds nothing like any of those things! I like that the album version really brings out the sadness of the song and this version brings out the teeth of it a bit more. At this point, I couldn’t tell you which is the definitive version and which is the ‘remix’. That’s for you to decide now!”
