Singled Out: Gabby Young & Other Animals' I've Improved
"Every one of my songs is written differently - some come to me, others have to be written and this track was born out of necessity! I was working on all my songs and ideas for album 3 and realised I had focused too much on the shade and wanted to have lots of light in my album to make people feel good about life, dance and escape so I when driving along I tried to write an upbeat song, which very rarely works, in fact I hate TRYING to write songs but time was against me!
So I just pressed record on my phone (in the safest way possible in a car!) and started singing the chorus - it instantly came to me and then the verse tumbled out - it was a complete song by the end of my short journey. When I returned home I ran into the house, grabbed my guitar and found out I had written another 2 chord song which I have done a few of in my time but I couldn't help but develop a soft spot for this simple, fun ditty and decided that I found my light to all the shade and here is a bonafide album track ready to go!
As for the lyrics - I had just been to tour in the Middle East- which I loved and had learnt so much so I knew I wanted to sing about how I was improving my world knowledge and had realised I have been a little sheltered and it was time to wake up and notice the world around me."
