Knox Declares He’s A “Man Down,” Announces New EP

Our favorite indie/pop songwriter is back at it again. Nashville-based Knox has just dropped his new single, “Man Down,” along with a punchy (pun intended) lyric video. Known for writing witty lyrics and memorable melodies, Knox shows a side of himself which we can all relate to. That is, feeling unlucky in love and withstanding the pain of a toxic relationship. As the subject of a one-sided fight, Knox withstands every punch, singing “She’s a drop-dead stone-cold killer / But damn, I’m dying to be with her.” 

The lyric video that accompanies the track reflects the themes of the song through boxing metaphors. When the first chorus hits, Knox is seen being hit by a boxing glove in the face, and returns to his performance  with a bloody nose. As the visualizer continues, the songwriter continues to face more and more blows, coming to terms with the fate that he has accepted. It is a powerful representation of how cruel love can be to its victims.

In addition to “Man Down,” Knox announced this morning that he will be releasing his new EP, I’m So Good At Being Alone? on October 6. Following his hopelessly romantic first release, How To Lose A Girl In 7 Songs, this new collection will feature four new songs, alongside his recent singles, “Not The 1975” and “We’re Not In Love Anymore” featuring Charlotte Sands. There is also a special collaboration with Nightly on an unreleased track called “Miss When You Missed Me.” This seems like a perfect partnership, since Knox is opening for the trio this fall on their Wear Your Heart Out Tour. 

The cover art for the EP depicts Knox as four incredibly different versions of himself: a beat up boxer, a Matty Healy-type, a guy with a motorcycle helmet, and his everyday self in a sweater. From what we’ve heard so far, it appears that each song will showcase a different element of Knox’s personality, as well as how he’s grown as a person and artist.
