Lauv released a new song called Modern Loneliness only a few hours ago. This song is set to be a part of his upcoming album 'how I'm feeling'. The album's release date is 6th March 2020. Lauv has said, "This is my favorite song on the album and the most important song I feel I’ve ever made. There is a lot of loneliness out there. We all feel it. But there is also a lot of love waiting for us and I hope this song can be a catalyst for that."
The song has already received immense appreciation from fellow artists. The audience is already a fan of the lyrics and are playing the song on repeat. Lyrics such as "We're never alone but always depressed / Love my friends to death / But I never call, I never text" are particularly hitting home with the young generation.
The purpose of the song is to connect to reality. Through this song, he wants to display the current condition of society. The way people connected via media and still find themselves lonely and depressed. Advanced technology is connecting people but at the same time making them feel distant.
To go with the song, Lauv has also released a music video simultaneously. In the video, he is laying on the green grass surrounded by beautiful yellow flowers. In this scenery, as he sings the song, he expresses his emotions through the lyrics.
His song hits home and the audience are awaiting his album. Don't forget to listen to the entire album when it releases in a few weeks!
