The first Paj release of 2020, 'Superman' comes with an all-star lineup and a 70’s throwback chorus that recalls Lee Fields & Curtis Mayfield.
Collaborating under quarantine, Uly lent his trumpet, Rob de Boer & Zeenie Summers their vocals, Joe Furlong his bass & Fiachra Kinder his drums to Paj’s vocals, guitars & keys.
'Superman' is a song that acknowledges the pressure that we put on ourselves:
‘Everybody wants to be a superman, everybody wants to be the best they can’
Borrowing the phrase from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) made popular by Blindboy Boatclub; ‘I’m no better than no-one else, and no-one’s better than me’ the lyrics offer a catchy mantra of self-love and watching out for one another.
'Superman' reminds you to go gently because everyone has a private battle.
