MUSIC NEWS: GHØSTKID Release Two Versions Of ‘THIS IS NØT HØLLYWØØD’
GHØSTKID have released two versions of THIS IS NØT HØLLYWØØD, telling a universal story from two perspectives. The project is the new moniker of Sebastian “Sushi” Biesler (formerly of Eskimo Callboy), who formed the group with like-minded friends.
GHØSTKID comments on the new single:
“You have money, you have fame, you have power but…
THIS IS NØT HØLLYWØØD
Life is not a show and when all of this is gone you’re just like everybody else.
You can get hurt and lose yourself just like everybody else.
THIS IS NØT HØLLYWØØD is an unmasking that shows the ugly side of show business. To be an artist, sometimes means to deal with a lot of problems. You have it all but maybe you’ll have nothing in the end.
In the video of the song I’ve tried to symbolize this dilemma to the point.
Some say Jesus was the first popstar and you can compare his story to many others. The story has no happy ending.
People only see you as some kind of god. They glorify you even when they don’t know you in person. In the beginning you’re the idol and one day there comes the downfall and you end up on a cross!
Who can you trust if everybody just wants to see you as a perfect product?
Who will you ask for help if everybody just loves the artist and not the person behind the mask?
Who will take all your pain and pressure away if you always have to function?
As an artist nobody wants to see your weakness they just want to be entertained! You need a strong mind to shape a world that constantly tries to shape you. Otherwise, you will lose the most important thing…you will lose yourself!”
The first version guest stars Timi Hendrix from Trailerpark, who also did the original front cover painting of the single artwork.
The second version of THIS IS NØT HØLLYWØØD features a guest appearance from Hollywood Undead‘s Johnny 3 Tears.
GHØSTKID self-titled debut album is due for release on 13th November 2020 via Century Media Records, available to pre-order HERE.
