Stereophonics, ‘Forever’ – Single Review ★★★★☆
‘Forever’ by Stereophonics – Single Rating: 4/5 ★★★★☆
Stereophonics return with ‘Forever’, the third single from their upcoming album ‘Oochya!’. While fresh to many ears, this release was originally a b-side from their 2008 smash, ‘You’re My Star’, but it’s a new and improved version!
‘Forever’, which first made an appearance 14 years ago, still stands out as well today as it did a decade ago. Also, with its renewed lustre and relatable storey, it’s easy to see why the band opted to give it a new lease on life!
It is a track about introspection, and Kelly Jones, the group’s frontman, sings about finding escapism and liberation; the message is even more applicable today! Furthermore, Kelly said: “‘Forever’ is about escapism. It’s about longing for freedom for someone and taking away the pain they’re going through; it’s about taking a bullet for them. Also, it’s about wanting to free the ones you love of pain, but we can’t – life’s pain is where we find growth. So the song has a lot wrapped up in it. People are feeling a lot of that these days.”
The hair is propelled up the back of the neck by the track. The guitar solo soars into the airways with a nail-biting snapping percussive rhythm. Kelly Jones sings with a fiery passion and offers a thought-provoking experience that tugs at the heartstrings. Also, with his words leaving an indent, he proves not only to be a powerful singer but a compelling raconteur too!
