Skylar Spence Shares “I Can’t Be Your Superman”

Bubbly nu-disco.

Skylar Spence returned today with "I Can't Be Your Superman," an uptempo cut that balances slick, Nile Rodgers-like guitar with serious sentiment: you're into trouble every chance that you get/ you're elusive and you're cold to the core/ say you're getting better, it's just a matter of time/ but I've heard you say it all before.

Spence told Billboard, "'Superman' is a song about a friend who was living very dangerously for a while. Around the time I wrote the song, I realized I was kind of an enabler of this behavior by not acknowledging the problem, but things soured as soon as I opened my mouth about it. It's not easy to help anyone who doesn't see the problem themselves, and that's where the song stems from."
