Speelburg – World Is Falling Apart (this version)

World Is Falling Apart’ was actually written back in 2017 when we were faced with a whole bunch of other problems,” shares Speelburg. “The world just hasn’t gone back to ‘America-in-the-Nineties’ level of chillness yet. I, like many of my generation, am privy to youthful narcissism and thinking we have it the worst, that today is worse than it was at any time in the past. This track tries to toe the line between the two, and maybe, hopefully, weighs a little more in favour of the latter. At the end of the world, I’m still going to choose optimism.”

And what’s more hopeful than a pony?”, he adds about the new video. “We wanted to show that despite the world crumbling around us, unlikely friendships are still blooming. We need to keep believing that tomorrow will be better, no matter what. I’ve started a petition on whitehouse.gov to change the presidential seal from an eagle to a pony and I eagerly await their answer.”

Of the new alternate “that version” of the song, Speelburg explains, “I’ve done this a few times. I’ll write and produce a whole track and then completely remix it just keeping the vocals and nothing else”. ‘World Is Falling Apart (that version), describe the artist; “starts out with an acoustic guitar and a sample of my mom and me and my brothers and sister and cousins and uncle when we were kids. My mom passed away a few years ago and one Christmas, my dad got all of our childhood tapes digitized and put them all on a USB stick for us.”
