I'm Getting Ready

Album: Home Again (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This was British Soul musician Michael Kiwanuka's debut single. It was released in the United Kingdom as a Digital download on July 24, 2011. He explained the song's meaning to This Is Fake DIY: "I have a real problem of sticking things out. With anything, if you do it for so long then it will inevitably start getting difficult, and it was getting frustrating constantly giving up on things, whether it be university or playing guitar for people. So 'I'm Getting Ready' is about keeping on going, building on things and not dropping everything instantaneously."
