When the going gets tough, the tough turn to Thomas Day. The singer-songwriter has been captivating audiences with his uplifting sounds these past few years, his heartfelt vocals and honest lyrics attracting millions of followers and monthly listeners worldwide. His previously released single “Wildflower” encouraged fans to persevere, words like “When you feel the walls start to cave in / Darling just hold on, be patient” bringing a little bit of sunshine to someone’s day. On his new single “The End,” Thomas continues to connect with his fans and remind them of the importance of never giving up.
Starting out calm and intimate with soothing acoustic guitar, “The End” puts us in a vulnerable place. Thomas opens up to us in these verses, singing about various intrusive thoughts. The indie pop track then transforms into a lush anthem with added instrumentation and soaring vocals. As Thomas sings, “One step forward, two steps to hell / I can’t give up, but I’m so unwell / It’s me against the world against myself / But this is not the end,” his determination to keep fighting spreads, rubbing off on us. You can check it out in the video below, which was directed by Brenton Giesey, the visual artist who also worked on the videos for “Wildflower” and “not my job anymore.”
About “The End,” Thomas explained,
“This song is definitely the most emotional I’ve released so far, and this was actually the first time I’d ever cried while I was recording a song. The ending of anything is my biggest fear. I hate change, I’ll do anything to fight for keeping things the same, which is kind of hypocritical because I broke up with a girl I’m in love with. This song is a fight for everything to be ok, but even if it isn’t, knowing it will be ok in the end.”
You can listen to “The End” on platforms like SoundCloud, Spotify, and Apple Music.
