Album: Young Adult (2017)
  • This is the lead single from Young Adult, the sixth album by Sam Duckworth, who records under the name of Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. He explained the story behind the song:

    "'Adults' came from a friend of mine who has young children. I think one of the things you discover growing up is that there are far fewer 'adults' than you think. As a child asks where are all the adults, us young adults often feel the same but are expected to find stability in a world where the rug is being swept from under our feet.

    It's a song about reading analysis of social change but feeling that there is a disconnect between the analysis and the outcome of the analysis. Are we all backseat drivers? Who will take the wheel? Surely that's a job for the adults."
