Joshua’s ‘Good For You’ EP arrives today via Epitaph Records and spans alt-pop, alternative RnB, gospel and lots more besides.

‘Father’ is the project’s immensely powerful opener, and arrives with an equally cinematic video which symbolises the artist overcoming life’s challenges – and which you can check out below.

Discussing the track, Roberts has explained:

“I wrote ‘Father’ for those who are going through similar situations.

“I hope this song gets to them in a positive way.”

Roberts wrote the full project in close collaboration with fellow Magnolia Park member Vince Ernst, and immersed himself in the music of an eclectic number of artists from Labrinth to The Weeknd

Speaking of ‘Good For You’ more broadly, he’s added:

“It was a different process because I had to be more of a nuisance with my voice because of the style prerequisites.

“I believe that it definitely shows the distinction of what I do with the band versus what I do with my solo work.”

“What inspired me to create this EP honestly is the motivation to always push myself.

“I felt like at the time of my artistry I wasn’t fulfilling my roots by creating something that I grew up listening to. 

“So this EP is something born of nostalgia but it’s also something that meets uncertainty and different sides of myself that I haven’t truly expressed yet.”
