Astronaut

Album: At Your Inconvenience (2011)
  • This piano-led ballad tells the tragic tale of a female friend of Green's heroin addiction. The rapper explained to Digital Spy why he is especially proud of this track: "It's about a real situation and touches upon some issues that are not easily digestible, but it's a beautiful song. On first listen it doesn't sound about something as dark as it is, which probably makes it my favourite song on the album."
