'FTM' is a politically-charged song, steeped in social commentary and the first single released from the new album. Sky explains saying: “I came from a Black Stone Cherry gig at Shepherd's Bush and we were all in a rocking mood. As we got to the tube station, I saw a homeless man sitting there with his son. The boy was not older than 12 years old. I was so shocked to see a child on the streets; I couldn’t get the image out of my mind. As I was reflecting on what is happening in the country (and the world really), with over 4 million children living in poverty in the UK, people having to use food banks despite having jobs, it struck me that we are in deep crisis and many are only one pay check away from having a real problem. Politicians pay lip service during their campaigns, yet very little changes after they get elected. I understand it’s not the happiest of topics, but this is what StoneWire is and how I write lyrics. I try to deal with the whole palette of life: the happy fun times as much as the more serious issues.”
