Baker Boy taps Sampa the Great and Dallas Woods to remind us 'Better Days' will come again

Baker Boy, Dallas Woods and Sampa The Great share personal stories of struggle, resilience and overcoming adversity on this timely new release.

The ever-incredible Baker Boy returns today with a brand new single titled 'Better Days'. Teaming up with none other than Dallas Woods and Sampa The Great, the song hears the three artists share personal tales of struggle, resilience and overcoming adversity while simultaneously confirming what we've known for years now: these three are some of the best to ever do it.

Incorporating English, Yolngu Matha and Bemba, 'Better Days' is not only a timely release with its message of honesty and hope, but a celebration of each artist's respective cultures, heritages, and shared experiences through language.

Baker Boy says of the process, “The whole studio time we had was amazing. The first time, seeing Sampa actually perform in the recording session, I got a surprise when she started singing. She’s got an amazing voice. I’ve always listened to her rap and to hear her sing, it was a whole other level. In the first part of Sampa’s verse, she’s rapping in language too, that inspires me as well.”

“That’s my little brother,” Dallas said. “It was good to see him talk about his struggles.”

“Our common ground is bringing our cultures to the forefront in what is the mainstream right now.” Sampa The Great added. “That’s something that I always saw and always admired in both Baker Boy and Dallas, and something I wanted to do for myself. Sometimes we put so much strain on artists, that they are even afraid to grow. I’m glad Baker Boy feels like he can actually express this element of himself. He doesn’t have to be one thing and that’s really beautiful.”
