Israeli singer-songwriter Mergui is making his English-language debut today with new single ‘Sucks To Know You (F.U.), released via Virgin/Saban Music Group.
The song is produced by Russ Chell (Tate McRae), and it starts a new chapter in Mergui’s career. The music video for the track will arrive at 4pm BST today.
‘Sucks To Know You (F.U.) bottles the aftermath of a breakup into an irresistible and infectious anthem. The accompanying video finds Mergui behind the wheel of a vintage red sedan as he speeds through a field of flowers, singing and screaming the lyrics with no shortage of emotion.
On the release of his first English-speaking single, Mergui says, “Ever since I was a little kid, I dreamed of doing music in English. This is something I’ve worked towards my whole life, and Haim Saban and the team at Saban Music Group made it a reality.”
The song is the first taster from upcoming E.P. ‘Dark Side of the Rain’.
