SongOfTheDay: Stormzy – Lay Me Bare (Thursday 17th January 2019)

Big Mike might be better known for bangers like Shut Up, Big For Your Boots and Know Me From but he has a real knack for emotionally resonant album cuts too. While everyone was raving about Not That Deep from the Dreamers Disease EP, I was in love with the melancholic-but-inspiring Intro.

From the moment I heard Lay Me Bare on Gang Signs And Prayers, I was hooked. From “Still got old school friends that I should have been cool with” to “airplane mode on my phone sometimes”, Stormzy captured how I feel quite often on this record. That is reflected in how often I played it in 2018, becoming my seventeenth most listened to song on Spotify last year.
