"'Nowhereland' is a breakup song about not really knowing what you had with someone until it was too late," Drew Arthur tells TooFab.
The duo -- known musically as FTRZ -- released "Nowehereland" Friday morning, and TooFab has the exclusive first listen and first look.
In their all-black-and-white music video, Arthur sings about the woes of being left with "half" of who he was before knowing the woman who broke his heart, while Hanks raps about what it's like being the only one of the two hurting from the split.
"'Nowhereland' is a breakup song about not really knowing what you had with someone until it was too late," Arthur told TooFab. "It's about being confused and left wondering what could have been and who you are in the aftermath of a unexpected heartbreak."
Hanks and Drew met through a mutual friend back in 2016 and quickly bonded over their love of music. Both having struggled with substance abuse, they also bonded over their shared sobriety.
The two intended on being featured artists on each other's songs but eventually decided to join forces and create FTRZ.
Hanks, who started rapping in 2010 while attending Northwestern University, is currently co-starring on "Empire" and "Shameless." He also has a role in the upcoming World War II drama, "Greyhounds," and has appeared on "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
