English songwriter Billy Lockett has shared his new single ‘You’re Not Alone’.
Out now, it closes another memorable year for the songwriter. New album ‘Abington Grove’ – named in honour of the street his father grew up on – lands on February 17th, and Lockett matched studio sessions to live commitments.
New single ‘You’re Not Alone’ is a neat, choppy return, its fun hooks matched to a tale of resignation. Constructed alongside Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Steph Marziano, there’s a bewitching dichotomy of light and shad at work in the new release.
Billy Lockett comments: “It’s about that moment when you admit defeat, come clean, and escape the chaos of life. It’s the only guitar song on the album, and I think it feels refreshing.”
“I love some of the lyrics, particularly things like ‘the leg I had to stand on finally broke’. It’s very freeing to me, a kind of ‘fuck everything let’s run away’ vibe. I’m really proud of this one!”
The full video for ‘You’re Not Alone’ is out now, and it offers a behind-the-scenes on the life of an artist. Billy explains…
“Being a solo artist can be quite a lonely life, I spend most of my time either alone in my studio making music or driving around to shows in my car. I wanted the video to show that as soon I get on stage and see people singing my songs I don’t feel alone anymore, everything clicks into place, I wanted the video to show both sides of the job. Love the little cameo from my mum too, any excuse to get her involved haha.”
Tune in now.
