Australian songwriter, composer, record producer, and DJ tyDi, presents a new track named ‘New Normal‘. This new release features Bella Renee and offers an optimistic message for those facing the consequences of COVID-19.
tyDi is back with an infectious indie dance-pop release with a very adequate name for these times. ‘New Normal’ alongside Bella Renee arrives in response to COVID-19 and the toll the pandemic lockdown had on him. Not only as an artist but also as a person living through the pandemic.
Spending months at home only seeing close loved ones brought upon the inspiration that led to writing ‘New Normal’. TyDi displays the powerful message that we are not alone in our feelings of isolation. The song came to fruition when vocalist Bella Renee flew to L.A. and met with tyDi in his studio. The physical connection between the pair exploring their feelings and sentiments towards the pandemic resulted in this beautiful track. ‘New Normal’ also articulates the toll the pandemic had on tyDi’s motivation and creativity.
TyDi Explains The Context Behind ‘New Normal’
We all know that 2020 has been extremely different, I thought I had my whole year planned out but as things changed I found myself struggling with the right words to put on paper. People who follow me know that I write all my songs from scratch, I’m a songwriter at heart. Telling stories through music is my passion, so when I’m lost for words it’s really messed up. I sat down with Bella in L.A. to write this song and we were scratching out all our thoughts and feelings about quarantine. I ended up talking about how I’m always in a love/hate relationship with the songs I put out. Then suddenly the concept hit me, that’s what I’m going to talk about!!
‘New Normal’ is a song about itself, and from the writer’s perspective it’s saying “I hated every song I did this year except this one.” I never made a song before where the lyrics are about the song you’re listening to. Sure it’s weird, but it’s honest!tyDi
