[video game release dates]Feels Like ’93: Annakin Slayd releases new playoff anthem ahead of Game 1 of Stanley Cup finals

2021-07-09

  MONTREAL —

  As Stanley Cup fever sweeps over the city, notable hip hop artist Annakin Slayd has dropped a new track to get everybody in the hockey spirit.

  The Montreal-based artist released an updated version of Feels Like ‘93 just in time for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals Monday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

  On the heels of his previous Habs-inspired track, the latest single, written by Andreas Farrar and Jean-Michel Simard, features vocals by singer Tiffany Pontes singing lyrics like, “I believe it was meant to be, feels a little like ‘93.”

  Slayd told CTV News he re-recorded the song with live guitar and drums for a complete 2021 refresh, and said it’s by happy circumstance that there are similarities between the team’s performance 28 years ago.

  ”It’s kind of serendipitous in a way that not only are the Habs in the Stanley Cup final but there are these similarities that make the song more appropriate and I had no choice but to make it,” he said Monday evening.

  The song, which premiered on TSN 690 Monday evening, appears to be a hit with many Habs fans, some of whom say it gives them “goosebumps.”

  The emotion right now!

  I remember 93. And you just made me cry. I didn’t think I would.

  Dude, I’m proud to be a Habs die-hard. I’m proud to be a Montrealer. And I’m proud to say you’re from MY city! #GoHabsGo fans are the greatest on the planet!!
