"3 Years has a number of layers within itself but the main thing it's about is my brother going away to prison for 3 years when I was a teenager and the effect that had on my mother". – Corey

This is a Live Version of the song which first appeared on Corey's recent record, A Loveless Sunken Sun. It was recorded one day in Corey's studio in NYC. We felt this version should be released as it shows a different side than the studio version. Has been supported by BBC 6Music, Hype Beast, Brooklyn Vegan, Complex and more.

COMPLEX - “the new single, "3 Years", a soulful, entrancing, immersive feat of multi-faceted creativity. Like the rest of the album, "3 Years" was written mostly at his base in Brooklyn, NY, as well as on tour. The seven tracks that came from that continue the indie sound he started with, but into that he's woven Krautrock, Afrobeats and Soul Music for a mellow but potent piece of music.”


So near, So far In your loose muffled car
As you roll out your trash talk
Singing blues to settle up
3 years we’ve all lost
Are you done
Will you stop
He’s gone beneath the wave
She’s gone beneath his wave
Feast your electric eye
On the low hanging fruit
News for the chastised,
Food for the youth
Are we quite sure
Will it tone your want with lead
Lead on and lead your way
Cheat on your fetus ways
Running man
What will come of today
Running man
What will come of today
Don’t slip off
Don’t slip off
