“’All Eyes On Me’ was a reaction to me sitting in an airport bar and watching the very same news story being played out on four very different networks,” said vocalist Walsh. “Four different tv screens… Four different truths… And every eye in the bar transfixed… I felt like an extra in Black Mirror or a living breathing Orwell novel.”
