Lyrics:
I’d lose everything so I can sing
Hallelujah I’m free
I’m free
I’m free
I’m free
I’m free

I have lived my life so perfectly
Kept to all my lines so carefully
I’d lose everything so I can sing
Hallelujah I’m free
I’m free
I’m free
I’m free
I’m free

Hallelujah I’m free

Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It’s never enough, I’m never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I’m trying to move
Hoping for more and wishing for less
When I didn’t care was when I did best
I’m desperate to run, I’m desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I’ll be free

All I want is your attention please
Don’t want your opinion or your fee
‘Cause the freest I have ever been
I had nothing to show or be seen
I’m free
I’m free
I’m free
I’m free

Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It’s never enough, I’m never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I’m trying to move
Hoping for more and wishing for less
When I didn’t care was when I did best
I’m desperate to run, I’m desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I’ll be free

It’s clear you think that I’m inferior
Whatever helps you sleep at night
Whatever helps you keep it tight

Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It’s never enough, I’m never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I’m trying to move
Hoping for more and wishing for less
When I didn’t care was when I did best
I’m desperate to run, I’m desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I’ll be free

Composition

"Free" is a midtempo anthem about having the freedom to express oneself. The song was written by duo members Caleb and Georgia Nott alongside its producer, Joel Little. A synthpop song with industrial elements,[4] it features prominent synth instrumentation and a rhythmic backbeat evoking a war drum; industry professionals have described the production as "menacing and liberating" as well as more evolved than their previous songs.[5][6] Georgia Nott explained to Triple J that the song's thematic content arose out of a desire to produce "more mature" songs that deviate from the topic of love and address real issues in people's lives.[5]

Commercial reception

"Free" debuted at number 30 on the New Zealand Singles Chart dated 11 April 2016 and has since peaked at number 27.[7][8] It also debuted at number one on the New Zealand Artists chart ranking tracks performed by local artists.[9] In Australia, the song entered the ARIA Top 50 singles chart at number 35 on the chart dated 17 April 2016 and has since peaked at number 30.[10][11]

In the United States, "Free" entered the Billboard Hot Rock Songs chart at number 47 on the chart dated 23 April 2016, their second entry on the chart.[12] "Free" ranked as the most-added song on alternative radio for the week ending 16 April 2016, with 14 Mediabase-monitored stations.[13] Despite this, it did not reach the Billboard Alternative Songs chart ranking airplay on the format for another two weeks, whereupon it debuted at number 38 on the chart dated 7 May 2016. It has since peaked at 31.[14]

Music video

An accompanying music video was directed by Jessie Hill and premiere 31 March 2016.[15]
