HARD FEELINGS was birthed after Goddard heard Douglas’ work and tweeted her, “Amy, can we make a thing?”

Speaking on the track, Douglas has said, “‘Holding On Too Long’ is the common denominator of the entire musical union of Amy and Joe. In this “opera of sad bangers”, here is its key area, its ‘Un Bel Di’ from Madame Butterfly or the ‘Mad Scene’ from Lucia Di Lammermour, the unforgettable moment of the story wherein our heroine stands up defiantly and has her moment to wail, scream and cry her pain and fury centre stage to the world.”
