NEW MUSIC: IDMAN | GOOD LIFE

Pop-R&B singer-songwriter IDMAN releases her new single and video "Good Life" via Arista Records. Produced by Grammy award-winning producer Khris Riddick-Tynes of The Rascals, in this breakup anthem, IDMAN reflects on a recent tumultuous relationship and hopes it will bring healing to listeners. IDMAN states, "'Good Life' is the breakup song I was almost too embarrassed to write. It's okay not to want to root on the people who hurt us. It's okay to feel bitter and pathetic. It's also not okay to stay there either. Both things can be true. Bad things don't always happen to bad people, and sometimes we have to watch the people who've broken us the most win loudly and publicly - and it's more than okay to feel fed by the universe." "In the accompanying "Good Life" visual directed by Jisun Lee IDMAN pays homage to Ronnie Spector, famed singer of the Ronettes, who endured abuse at the hands of Phil Spector. One particular scene in the video points to the rare occasion that Phil allowed Ronnie out alone as she had to drive alongside a life-sized dummy of Spector with a cigarette in her mouth. It was important for IDMAN to honour Ronnie's story of survival and the remarkable advocacy she carried throughout her life. Honouring survivors has been a connecting thread in all of IDMAN's visuals that pulls from her video for "Down For It," which references Thelma & Louise - illustrating what it would be like to live in a world where driving off a cliff wasn't a necessary resort in the aftermath of gender-based violence.
