Feet Don’t Fail Me Now is a song I wrote in light of the political events of last year. It’s written from the perspective of someone who finds it easier to remain complicit out of fear of speaking up and what those consequences might be. I think the chorus is universal and I hope it can be a call to action. We are all guilty of being this character. Ultimately I hope the song encourages people to be a bit braver – it’s important to open up a dialogue, speak out, make mistakes – that’s okay and that’s how progress happens.
The new video from Joy, directed by Taz Tron Delix. Listen to her discography on Spotify here.
I had the idea to split the song into two sections visually. I wanted the verses to be surreal and beautiful, but rooted in conformity and for the choruses to feel chaotic and liberated, thanks to my gorgeous cast for being so expressive and individual. https://t.co/tIHQ1tZdtO— Joy Crookes (@joycrookes) June 17, 2021
