Listen: Tama Gucci – ‘Didn’t Have To’

Tama Gucci shares the introspective, honest and vulnerable new single, ‘Didn’t Have To.’ The latest taste from his anticipated debut album, Notes To Self (out August 16th), is warm and personal with his soft vocals floating perfectly over ethereal synths.

“I love this song so much,” notes Tama Gucci. “It’s taken from the deepest pages of my notebook and put into a song –  about a past lover who I still think is cool but also manipulative. I came out on the greener side by being able to turn pain and confusion into a beautiful song.”
Notes To Self is an unabashedly romantic and brooding record, predominantly centring self-growth and happiness and gleaning wisdom from past mistakes. Sprinkling sobering moments of clarity into dance music was a meaningful choice for him, who cherished songs of a similar vein as a child.
