Cautious Clay – AKA Josh Karpeh – has dropped his brand new single, ‘Roots’.
Already having collaborated with the likes of Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, John Legend and John Mayer, as well as dropping three previous EPs, Clay recently released the collaborative single ‘Cheesin’ with Remi Wolf, Still Woozy, Sophie Meiers, Claud, Melanie Faye and HXNS to raise money for Covid-19 relief.
“‘Roots’ is about having an established history with someone and coming to the often difficult realization that things ultimately won’t last because of elements in the relationship that are toxic,” he explains. “I tried to make that sentiment known in the first verse, ‘from atoms up to comets, life is never promised, you could make me wanna lie and be dishonest’. It’s about wanting to put yourself out there and be emotionally vulnerable to a fault, however ultimately knowing that what’s best is for both people to separate and move on.”
