Speaking about the release, Robert told his mailing list members:
"In all honesty, I did this more for the sense of completion than for financial gain, because when I think about the artists I follow - Pet Shop Boys spring to mind as an act who reign supreme at this - I really appreciate the option to purchase all of these little extras that otherwise would never see the light of day for one reason or another".
"Older '20" is one of Indie Buddie's Indie Quick Picks! Check out what they said about the track:
"Why We Like It: It’s a heartfelt number embellished with flickering electronics and suspenseful soundscapes. Robert’s warm vocals hold a country tone while the twinkling keys and wispy atmosphere create a soaring gripping quality in the track. The dazzling beats and intense brooding soundscapes provide a pulsing rush of emotion while the catchy melody drifts elegantly upon this bubbling backdrop. It’s a wholesome passionate track backed sublimely by lush intricate electronics".
