"Only A Matter Of Time" marked Bassett's second release of the month, trailing two weeks after "Lie Lie Lie." While there was endless speculation over whether the songs were written about Rodrigo, Bassett's latest arrived with a very specific back story.
"I wrote this song in the summer of 2020 in a moment in time where social media was bringing a lot of darkness to my life," he revealed in a statement. "It was healing to put my phone down, turn off the noise and just write."
Bassett added he hopes we start to see more kindness on social media and less hate. "There’s good that comes from social media, but it’s also become a place where people can say anything about anyone, no matter how false or damaging with no accountability. We’ve gotta be much kinder to each other and recognize there are real people behind the screens!" he said.
