It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from King Tuff, with his last release being 2014’s Black Moon Spell. But now Tuff has released a new single and video titled “The Other.” He describes this new ballad in a recent Facebook post:
“”The Other”. It’s a song about hitting rock bottom. I didn’t even know what I wanted to do anymore, but I still had this urge—this feeling—like there was this possibility of something else I could be doing… and then I just followed that possibility. To me, that’s what songwriting, and art in general, is about. You’re chasing something, there is something out there calling to you and you’re trying to get at it. “The Other” is basically where songs come from, it’s the hidden world, it’s the mystery. It’s the invisible hand that guides you whenever you make something. It’s the thing I had to rediscover—the sort of voice I had to follow—to bring me back to making music again in a way that felt true and good.”
The video was directed by Cameron Dutra. You can watch it above.
