Teddy Swims is the epitome of soul. His debut album, Tried Everything But Therapy (Part 1), is flooded with raw emotion that is palpable from beginning to end. With every vocal run and touch of vibrato comes a story of love, loss, and healing. And it is clear that Teddy Swims is ready to lay his soul bare. 

Giving listeners a taste of the album, Swims released a live video for his song “Some Things I’ll Never Know.” Performing the track accompanied by a live pianist, the artist stands in the spotlight and allows his vocals to speak for themselves. There are no gimmicks or over-the-top editing effects: just Swims singing his guts out to a song that is deeply personal.

In an exclusive interview with idobi Radio’s  Mike “Fish” Fishkin, Swims thanks his songwriting team for sticking with him throughout his career and supporting him through the creative process leading to his debut full-length album. 

“If it wasn’t for John Ryan and Julian Bunetta, I wouldn’t be anywhere,” he says. “Those guys have stuck with me since I released ‘Broke,’ my first release on Warner.”

At midnight last night, Swims shared the meaning behind “Some Things I’ll Never Know” with fans on Instagram

“Here’s the first song from my debut album ‘I’ve Tried Everything But Therapy (Part 1)’ – ‘Some Things I’ll Never Know’ out now!!” he begins. “The older I get the more I realize that maybe closure isn’t something that comes from the person that hurt you. Maybe it has to come from within. People leave your life and sometimes you don’t get an explanation or anyone or anything to blame for it… you can’t fix or control every issue someone has and it’s not always about you. There are just some questions you’ll never get the answers to.”
