FINNEAS has gifted us with another new song, and once again it's something we can all relate to in 2020. "Can't Wait to Be Dead" sees the singer-songwriter grappling with his tumultuous relationship with the internet, especially in the midst of a pandemic and election.
"I’m happy for this song to mean anything to anyone who listens to it but to me, it’s a song about my relationship with the Internet,” he explained in a statement. “Especially in an election year. Especially during a pandemic. Sometimes, the internet makes me laugh, sometimes it makes me cry, sometimes it makes me hopeful. But sometimes, it really makes me wanna be dead."

The new track follows last month's "What They'll Say About Us" —a song FINNEAS "dedicated to all who have had to endure this year."
“I wrote this song in June after spending the day at a protest in Downtown LA, filled with hope with the prospect that millions of people were coming together from all over the world to fight against institutionalized racism and inequality," he said. "During that time, I’d also been following Amanda Kloots as she documented her husband Nick Cordero’s time in the ICU while in a coma after being admitted for COVID-19."
"Imagining her sitting by his side, waiting, hopeful for him to wake up, it got me thinking about all the millions of people, all over the world, who also have loved ones, parents, children and extended family members going through the same thing," the singer-songwriter continued. "Fighting this horrific virus. Some will overcome and wake up again, while others, tragically may not. This song is dedicated to all who have had to endure this year. I hope this song can offer some sort of comfort to those who may need it.”
