The Internet’s bassist Patrick Paige II has released new single, ‘On My Mind/Charge It To The Game’. The first half of the track is written as a letter to his sister after their mother died, and features his bandmate Syd. For the second half, he’s also joined by rapper Kari Faux.

“I wrote this song for my sister sometime a couple years ago”, he tells The Fader. “During our falling out for the first year and a half after our mother’s passing, things were pretty rough between us. I didn’t know how to talk to her about how I felt and often times I was honestly too upset to want to talk to her, and vice versa, so I wrote it out and tried to express everything I could the best way I knew how at the moment. Thankfully, we’re in a better place now. She hasn’t heard the song, seen the video, and I haven’t told her about it. I want it to find its way to her”.

Paige’s debut solo album, ‘Letters Of Irrelevance’, is set for release on 11 May. Watch the video for ‘On My Mind/Charge It To The Game’ here:
