The opening chords of "Stupid World" depict the final stages of a fire burning out and the rising of a new era. It’s an image that feels appropriate, as Hermitude return to the spotlight, after experiencing the grand success of their last album Dark Night Sweet Light. Meticulously working while letting the flames calm, the duo re-emerge with the first taste of a brand new project.
 
"Stupid World" communicates the alienation of people in dark times, and highlights the hope that follows. Bourelly's lyric "may the bridges I've burned light the way" is the moment of taking control of a bad situation, illuminating the way ahead.
 
Elgusto and Luke Dubs’ great strength has always been their musical chemistry and collaborative relationship. ‘Stupid World’ steps further into new territories of their creative process, inviting songwriters and vocalists into the studio to explore a stronger pop sensibility for the first time.
 
Bibi Bourelly signed to Def Jam Records when she was 19 years old. Racking up an incredible discography thus far, she was the co-writer of Rihanna’s "Bitch Better Have My Money," has had her vocals feature on tracks by Lil Wayne and Usher, and most recently co-wrote the Mariah Carey meme phenomenon "GTFO."

'Stupid World' lyrics:
I don't come from a pretty place
And I get mad when I don't get my way
She can't stand it when I drink
'Cause I say whatever is in my brainAnd I have burnt some bridges
But may the bridges I burnt light the way
I have burnt some bridges
But may the bridges I burnt...Light the way
Light the way
Light the way
Light the wayI can't help it, my IPA
Makes it easier to get through the day
I don't think that my GPA
Says anything 'bout the way I think

And I have burnt some bridges
But may the bridges I burnt light the way
I have burnt some bridges
But may the bridges I burnt light the way

I have burnt some bridges
But may the bridges I burnt...
Light the way
Light the way

Yes I just stay in this stupid world
Yes I just stay in this stupid world
Yes I just stay in this stupid world
Yes I just stay in this stupid world, oh

Light the way
