Lauv has shared a brand new single.
Titled ‘Drugs & The Internet’, it’s the first taster of his much anticipated debut album, ‘~how i’m feeling~’.
His first single since January’s Troye Sivan collab ‘i’m so tired’, Lauv explains: “I wrote “Drugs & The Internet” at a time I was struggling with feelings of extreme emptiness and depression. I wrote it as a sort of self-analysis for my obsession with the way I wanted to present myself to the world — a commentary on the world we live today. It is as much self-deprecating as it is serious and sad. It flew out of me in an hour. It felt more therapeutic than any song I’d written before. As the first song off of my album ~how i’m feeling~, it is the perfect entrance into the next phase of my life and music. I am more proud of this song and video than anything i have ever created in my life, and I’m so excited that it’s yours now.”
So there we go.
We’ve no firm release date for ‘~how i’m feeling~’ yet, but there are two new shows at London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum on 4th and 5th November on the books. You can check out ‘Drugs & The Internet’ below.
