The single release follows snny’s 2017 debut EP Learning to Swim – featuring Spotify playlist favourites ‘Arizona’ and ‘Young Boy’, which premiered on Beats 1 and was featured on Major Lazer’s ‘Lazer Sound’ Beats 1 show.

Speaking of his latest single, snny said: “When I wrote ‘A Better World’ it felt like the climate of the country and the world was similar to that of the 60’s when Dylan wrote his anthem for a frustrated youth. I wanted to channel that same spirit in my own voice, and provide comfort for my generation in a way that we haven’t necessarily had yet. Dylan is the reason I started songwriting, so to be able to reimagine his classic in a way that speaks true to me and my friends with his stamp of approval brings it all full circle.”

The artist was recently featured by Billboard, who described snny’s debut as “effortlessly traverses genres from R&B and soul to hip-hop and pop – all with a hazy, nostalgic bent and many sonic nods to the past.” The artist has also received further support from the likes of Entertainment Weekly, Pigeons & Planes and Earmilk, who described snny’s ability to play up the “lyrical poetic style to create a special stripped down moment” on ‘A Better World + The Times Are A Changin”.
