Singled Out: Gabby Young & Other Animals' I've Improved

Gabby Young & Other Animals will be performing at SXSW, so to celebrate we asked Gabby to tell us about "I've Improved," which was just released ahead of their new album "One Foot In Front Of The Other" (out April 29th). "Here is the story:

"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."

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, watch the video here and learn more about the album, the group and the details for their SXSW showcase right here!
