World-beating musical champion Tones And I has shared a new single, releasing “Ur So F**iNg cOoL” after days (and months) of teasing.
While Tones And I has had an absolutely mammoth year by way of chart-topping records, streaming records, and YouTube view milestones, the Aussie artist has barely had time to relax, relentlessly releasing new music, even during a global pandemic.
Although singles such as “Bad Child” and “Can’t Be Happy All the Time” were released in early March, fans lucky enough to catch Tones performing live pre-lockdown were treated to a new song, which was ostensibly titled “You’re So Fucking Cool”.
Describing the track to audiences at her Laneway performances, and during an interview with Nova’s Ben & Liam, Tones explained just where the song’s inspiration came from.
“So, I have a song that I’m about to release and I haven’t shown anybody yet,” Tones explained to the crowd at her Melbourne Laneway performance. “This song is about story from when I went to LA.
“When I was there, this big producer said to me, “Hey Tones, do you want to sing on a track?’ And I said, ‘No, that’s okay, Australians pride themselves on rock and roll and writing their own music’.
“He said, ‘that’s okay, do you want to come to a house party?’, and I was like, ‘Shit yeah!’ So me and my friend, Abbie, she’s from Sheffield and she’s ratchet and I’m a bogan, so together weren’t made for LA house parties. So we went anyway, and no one really spoke to us, and it was like they’d much rather just speak to each other.
“One girl came up to me and she said, ‘I’m from the TV show Teen Wolf, I don’t know if you’ve heard of it.’ And I said to her, ‘I’ve never seen the show, but I am sure you are terrific.’ Other than that they didn’t really speak to us, so after 45 minutes we got an Uber, went back to the hotel, got Uber Eats and watched Netflix.
“Then I wrote a song about it the next day, and it’s called ‘You’re So Fucking Cool’.”
Now, after teasing the track’s release on social media this week, Tones And I has officially shared the new single on streaming services, which has since been giving the somewhat enigmatic (and censored) title of “Ur So F**iNg cOoL”.
Staying close to the live version fans had recently heard, this new studio-recorded version of the track is undoubtedly set to be another high watermark for the acclaimed Aussie musician, who has been teasing the release of an accompanying music video on socials recently.
