Lunatic

Album: Roaring 20s (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Jordan "Rizzle" Stephens explained the meaning of this menacing Roaring 20s track to The Sun. He said: "It's the darkest track on the album and is about frustration. When I was young I hated being confined by the rules of academia. The song carries the idea of a kid being at school then the minute he gets home he becomes this animal – a musician and lunatic."
  • Jordan's mum does backing vocals on the tune. She previously featured in the video for The Rizzle Kicks' "Mama Do The Hump" single miming to the rapping.
