‘I Didn’t Know’ exemplifies the traits that have made Decco leaders in their field. The insistent melody is immediately memorable, allowing its positive dance-pop groove to immediately embed itself in your subconscious. And having worked with an enviable list of collaborators, Decco can identify a world class vocalist. This time around they called on James Gillespie, whose tenacious vocals and autobiographical lyrics shine in a vastly different setting. It’s a song which reflects the natural connection that the trio made when they recorded the track together pre-lockdown.
Decco commented, “We wrote this song together with James in The Barbican London pre the Corona pandemic.  We started jamming and instantly felt that we had something really strong going. It’s a song about realizing how much somebody means to you when it might be too late to fix it.”
James Gillespie added, “This song is about not knowing how badly you need someone. Thinking you’re OK and pretending to everyone around you. But in reality – you can’t imagine life without them”.
