CMAT unveils new single ‘Lonely’

It’s that time again - our roundup of the biggest and best new music this week.

With her debut album ‘If My Wife New I’d Be Dead’ set for release on 4th March via AWAL Recordings, CMAT - who featured in our Class of 2022 issue! - has shared new single ‘Lonely’. “I started writing the song ‘Lonely’ in the Arndale food hall in Manchester when I was on my break from work,” she says. “Anyone who has been there will know that it is as aesthetically unpleasant as it is bustling, at all hours of the day. There was something that always drew me to it though - people. I was very isolated during this period of my life and longed for a day when I could be sitting at a table of friends that I did not have. Instead, I found myself regularly sitting alone and watching strange families and friend groups, peering out from underneath a Taco Bell crunch wrap, for a false sense of comfort. “It took me years to finish this song because I couldn’t figure out the point of it. Then the pandemic happened, and suddenly I realised that everybody was in the boat that I had been long accustomed to (my sea legs are beefy in this regard). I realised that the point of isolation is maybe to learn to cherish people more, and to not be so scared of them, or scared of how you are perceived by them. “Ultimately though, I wrote this song to try and get Robbie Williams to notice me.” Check it out below. ‘If My Wife New I’d Be Dead’ Tracklisting: 1.
