Tommy commented on his time working with Caitlin, who has toured with big names like Taylor Swift, Shakira and Ringo Starr:
“I kept hearing another vocal besides my own every time I listened to the rough mixes. So, I decided to reach out to Caitlin and see if she’d be up for it. When I received the stems back from her, I was completely blown away. It really felt like we had something special with ‘Human Kind.’”
“Human Kind” is the follow-up to Tommy’s last single, “15,” which featured the sweltering guitar work of Jeff Schroeder of the Smashing Pumpkins. That song charted at #25 on the Billboard Dance/Electro chart and #3 on the iTunes Dance Chart.
Speaking of the new single’s messaging, Tommy shares:
“The song was born out of my frustration of the way people treat each other on social media. It’s almost as if we have to come to defaulting to a mean-spirited point of view. You never know what someone is dealing with. It could be dealing with an illness or the loss of a loved one. You just never know. And it works both ways. Treat people the way you’d want to be treated. Choose kindness.”
