FINNEAS Releases New Song “Cant Wait to be Dead” – Out Now
Official Music Video Coming Thursday, October 22
Six-time GRAMMY® Award-winning musician, songwriter and producer FINNEAS returns with a bold and fiery new song, “Can’t Wait To Be Dead,” a testament to the times we’re living in. Speaking about the track, FINNEAS reveals, “I’m happy for this song to mean anything to anyone who listens to it but to me, it’s a song about my relationship with the Internet,” he explains. “Especially in an election year. Especially during a pandemic. Sometimes, the internet makes me laugh, sometimes it makes me cry, sometimes it makes me hopeful. But sometimes, it really makes me wanna be dead.”

Premiering this Thursday, October 22 is the official music video for “Can’t Wait To Be Dead” HERE, directed by Constellation Jones, the alter ego of longtime music video producer and director Clark Jackson, whose past work includes Lana Del Rey, Lady Gaga, and Miguel.
The new track follows the release of “What They’ll Say About Us,” FINNEAS’ rousing observation, written in lockdown. An ode to human strength and connection when faced with life’s tribulations, “What They’ll Say About Us” is buoyed by hope while bearing the weight of it all. FINNEAS reveals “I wrote this song in June after spending the day at a protest in Downtown LA, filled with hope with the prospect that millions of people were coming together from all over the world to fight against institutionalized racism and inequality. During that time, I’d also been following Amanda Kloots as she documented her husband Nick Cordero’s time in the ICU while in a coma after being admitted for COVID-19. Imagining her sitting by his side, waiting, hopeful for him to wake up, it got me thinking about all the millions of people, all over the world, who also have loved ones, parents, children and extended family members going through the same thing. Fighting this horrific virus. Some will over-come and wake up again, while others, tragically may not. This song is dedicated to all who have had to endure this year. I hope this song can offer some sort of comfort to those who may need it.”
To commemorate the new song, FINNEAS has unveiled a new collection of official merchandise, inspired by the artwork and concept of “Can’t Wait To Be Dead.” For more information and to purchase, please visit www.FinneasOfficial.com.
