Lauv’s dropped his new song, ‘Sad Forever’.
“I wrote sad forever at a time when I was extremely low,” he explains. “I was dealing with depression and OCD but hadn’t really recognised or gotten the help I needed. While I was hesitant at first, asking for help was an important first step.
“Mental illness is something that is often times not apparent to the outside world. It’s an ongoing journey with ups and downs and finding stability is a process that I’m still heavily working on.
“This song was written in a dark place but by donating all proceeds to mental health organisations I can only hope it helps others take their first step to ask for help too.”
In the UK, proceeds from the song will go to Time to Change. Find out more about their work at time-to-change.org.uk.
