Chiiild has continued to release compelling and introspective records, and “Antidote” is no exception. This latest release is complete with rich layers of heartfelt vocals and an undeniable sense of sincerity that puts listeners at the heart of Chiiild’s carefully crafted world.
About the track, Chiiild shares “’Antidote’ is about being enamoured by a person. It describes the infatuation of watching someone live life optimistically and simply wanting a piece of that because they symbolize the light for you. It is a representation of the idea that this person could save me from any emotional or physical struggle.”
Chiiild first announced Better Luck in the Next Life with the release of his single “Bon Voyage.” The track offered a first glimpse into the album, which serves as an in-depth exploration of creative freedom, personal equilibrium, and a return home. Chiiild followed this up by releasing his next single “You Get Me (A Final Word),” which premiered on The Zane Lowe Show on Apple Music in December. Most recently, Chiiild teamed up with R&B powerhouse Lucky Daye on his latest track “Good For Now.” These singles have accumulated nearly 4 million streams and counting.

As an artist influenced by everyone from Pink Floyd to Marvin Gaye, Chiiild has a knack for melding sounds and coupling them with songwriting that is rooted in both storytelling and social commentary. In early 2020, Chiiild released his debut EP Synthetic Soul.

At the heart of it, Better Luck in the Next Life matches passion with energy from an artist who isn’t afraid to take risks in his sound and evolve with every lyric and note.
