PREMIERE: Thomas Keating Delivers An Honest & Impassioned Ode To Self Care With ‘Today I’m Staying Home’

Aussie indie artist Thomas Keating has delivered an unflinchingly honest and downright relatable new tune dubbed ‘Today I’m Staying Home’, premiering today exclusively via Music Feeds.

With gentle vocals, tender driving guitar and crescendoing percussion, the single is an ode to those days where the world is too much to handle and you’d rather stay in bed than face it. A gentle anthem for the introverts amongst us.

“Today I’m Staying Home is inspired by one of those mornings where you wake up with the ‘f*ck its’, and you decide instead of leaving your bed or home to face your life and all the responsibilities that come with being an adult in this world, you just stay in,” explains Keating.

“I’ve always struggled with bouts of depression and anxiety around the uncertainties and pressures of everyday life, and I guess at the time I wrote the song I was going through such a phase. I think it’s important to remember that at times it’s okay just to feel like shit – it’s okay to put your hand up and say ‘I’m not dealing with this very well. I need help’.

Mental health is extremely self-alienating, and I’d like to think that we are moving past the stigma of shame that has hung around such ailments for far too long.”

Keating will launch the single with shows in Sydney and Melbourne in February. Details below.
