Her new track ‘Good Days’, part of her upcoming album ‘SZA2’, also features the vocals of Grammy-winning Jacob Colliers. Though the date for her upcoming album hasn't been announced yet, ‘Ctrl’ crooner SZA has talked about making this album a concoction of different themes coming together. In a Zane Lowe interview, the Academy Award-nominated singer said, "This body of work (her anticipated album) is very…um… Everything sounds different, but it all sounds like me. So like 'Hit Different' doesn’t sound like anything else on the project and neither does 'Good Days.'"
How to stream?
The track is available on Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music, and more.
SZA unravels a number of personal themes such as nostalgia, fear of abandonment, sexuality and more with genres such as alternative R&B, neo-soul, minimalist R&B, hip-hop, cloud rap, witch house, and chillwave. Her next album ‘SZA2’ will supposedly have a mix of different genres and personal stories blended with it.
The lyrics of the ‘Good Days’ talk about nostalgia and a yearning to keep things in their good days. The lyrics go, "Good day in my mind, safe to take a step out/ Get some air now, let your edge out/ Too soon, I spoke, you be heavy in my mind/ Can you get the heck out?/ I need rest now, got me bummed out/ You so, you so, you, baby, baby, babe/ I've been on my empty mind shit.”
In the pre-chorus, SZA sings "I try to keep from losin' the rest of me/ I worry that I wasted the best of me on you, baby/ You don't care/ Said, 'Not tryna be a nuisance, it's just urgent'/ Tryna make sense of loose change/ Got me a war in my mind/ Gotta let go of weight, can't keep what's holding me/ Choose to watch/ While the world break up and fall on me." Jacob then joins in the vocal singing, “All the while, I'll await my armored fate with a smile. Still wanna try, still believe in good days, good days. Always inside (Always in my mind, always in my mind, mind). Good day living in my mind.”
‘Good Days’ released on December 25 but the release date of the upcoming album ‘SZA2’ will be announced soon, as SZA wrote in an Instagram comment.
