"Beside Yourself" marks the band's first outing of 2021, following last year's Friend Ship album, and sees the group unite with fellow New Zealand singer/songwriter Fazerdaze.
Fazerdaze, real name Amelia Murray, says of the collaboration, "I really enjoyed working with Samuel on this track. We recorded the vocals one morning at his place after we drank green juice and joked about how bougie and salubrious we were. It was special for me to see the inner workings of their creative process while they were still in the thick of their new material. Really chuffed to have this track out now, I've been a massive fan on The Phoenix Foundation for years."
