The new single from Aussie rockers Birds Of Tokyo is an extremely personal one for frontman Ian Kenny.

The band have today unveiled their latest cut, Good Lord, a song that continues with their anthemic sound but takes a different direction lyrically, with Kenny singing about his marriage breakup two years ago.

"I know I’m not the first person to go through it, and unfortunately I won’t be the last, but it still hurt like hell and you can hear that in this song,” he explained. 

“I was just lucky that writing with the guys in Birds gave me a way to process some of the stuff I couldn’t even talk about at the time.”

Last September’s Unbreakable also touched on the same subject, with Kenny revealing those two songs are “just the tip of the iceberg”.

“Over the last year or so we’ve finished about half a dozen more that cover the whole spectrum of feelings you go through when something like this happens,” he explained. 

“So for better or worse there’ll a bit of a theme running through most of the songs we drop over 2019. It’s been a rollercoaster so people should strap themselves in."
