Feet Don’t Fail Me Now nominated for Song of the Year

‘Feet Don’t Fail Me Now’  is one of the nominations for SONG OF THE YEAR at the 2022 Visionary Honours.

“I’m honoured that ‘Feet Don’t Fail Me Now’ has been nominated for Song of the Year. It’s a track that is really important to me, so to see it resonating with people is an amazing feeling” – Joy Crookes

The song which explores online activism, cancel culture and privilege, was inspired by the social and political turmoil of the last 18 months and Joy describes the track as one of the most complicated songs she has ever written.

The ironic track is written from the perspective of someone who finds it easier to remain complicit out of a fear of being cancelled.

“In some sense you can sympathise with the perspective I’m singing from because cancel culture is scary, as is re-educating yourself and challenging your friends and families. Ultimately, I hope the song encourages people to be a bit braver…open up a dialogue, speak out, make mistakes – that’s okay and that’s how progress happens” – Joy Crookes

The nominations shortlist was selected by a leading panel of critics, journalists, authors, producers and activists. The public then voted for the person/work they felt made the biggest social impact.

Winners will be announced at a star-studded ceremony on the 1st March at BAFTA Piccadilly, hosted by Sir Lenny Henry.

The Visionary Honours are supporting @youngmindsuk – the UK’s leading charity fighting for children and young people’s mental health.
