Whisky Story

Album: Yet to be titled (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The first single from Example's sixth album was inspired by the changes in his life since becoming a father. "I wrote this track just after my son was born and was really craving a night out," the rapper explained. "It's a tale of nights out in my younger single days and a nod to my first record - and thinking how much my life has changed since then."

    He added: "I want to put the fun and humour back into my music and when another artist heard it they said, 'I think this is the most Example-y Example track yet', which I suppose can only be a good thing."
  • Example came up with the concept for the video himself. "It's me walking and talking from the Tube to Trafalgar Square. One take. One continuous shot," he said. "With me filming everything myself on a GoPro on a selfie stick. It took 80 people and 24 takes to get it right. The most stressed I've ever been on a video shoot."
