Kings favorite Nate Merchant drops his 5th and last single this year I Hate It Here. Since his first release the Los Angeles indie artist has been stuck in the 80’s and doesn’t plan on moving from the neon era. Next year in 2022, when the pandemic over, everything will make sense and the 80’s will make a full blown resurgence. The track was produced by John Taylor from Duran Duran.
Merchant says: “I wrote I Hate It Here during the lockdown back in 2020. It’s really a song that was therapeutic for me and helped me handle being isolated. Initially the production was much darker but Isaiah Tejada got his hands on it and created a beautiful arrangement of sparkly synths which I thought was a great juxtaposition to the lyrics. This was also the first tune I got to work on with John Taylor of Duran Duran who helped bring it across the finish line.”
