In a statement shared to Instagram on Friday, the EP’s history—which dates back to the very early days of 2015 following Peep’s return from an influential trip to Pasadena—was detailed.
“By mid-March, he had asked for and gotten the only two things he needed to make music on his own, using his laptop in his bedroom: a condenser mic and a pair of beats headphones. It was soon after that when Gus made Feelz,” the statement reads.

As revealed in Friday’s statement, footage was also captured for the track “Life,” although such footage was ultimately “never realized” into a full video.
Feelz’ wide release follows last December’s rollout of High Fashion, a three-tracker Peep made with producer Harry Fraud. Other posthumous re-releases include the 2020 streaming debut of the widely celebrated 2016 mixtape Hellboy, featuring some of Peep’s most cherished songs including the Horsehead collab “Girls” and the Lil Tracy-featuring “The Song They Played (When I Crashed Into the Wall).”
