Fred again.., Romy and HAAi have dropped their collaborative track, ‘Lights Out’.

It’s the first time the trio have joined forces on a track, though they previously all played a part on Romy’s 2020 debut solo single ‘Lifetime’, which Fred co-produced and HAAi remixed.

‘Lights Out’ is part-inspired by a shared night out at the Warehouse Project at the end of 2019, where HAAi performed. Created with the aim of it becoming a song each artist could end their sets with, it was originally written by Romy with The xx in mind, with Fred pulling it together on a train journey to the Scottish Highlands and HAAi road testing work-in-progress mixes during DJ appearances in late 2021.

Talking about ‘Lights Out’, Fred again.. says: “I started this song on my laptop on a train up to the Scottish Highlands and immediately sent it to Romy and Teneil (HAAi) because it felt super special to me. Romy’s lyrics and voice are just like a hug from a rave angel.”

While HAAi adds: “I enjoyed every step of the process of making this track with Romy and Fred. Romy and I have been close pals for a while and shared a studio last year and had been wanting to work on something beyond my remix of ‘Lifetime’. I feel this track represents a special part of each of our musical selves. Fred is one of the most energetic and wildly talented people I’ve been in a studio with. This really was a dream collaboration” – HAAi

Romy adds: “I’m so excited about this song – it came about really effortlessly and evolved so quickly. I first met Fred and Teneil through making music and DJing, as well as being big inspirations they’ve become 2 of my best friends. Working together with them was so joyful and I think you can really feel that when you listen to ‘Lights Out'”
