"I started the idea for 'Lonely' in my home in Los Angeles during the middle of the night near the beginning of the first quarantine lockdown. I basically just had a really simple track and melody with mostly the same lyrics that ended up being the chorus of the song. It was one of those ideas that I wasn't really thinking about too much, just writing what I felt in that moment. I wanted to capture the feeling of isolation in the realest way possible, states TWIN XL frontman Cameron Walker about "Lonely".
"Sleep has always been a constant struggle for me," continues Walker. "I'm nearly always sleeping too much or hardly at all. In this particular moment, it felt impossible. It was like every single little thing that I was anxious about came rushing in all at once and it just kind of manifested itself into little this hook. "
"Months went by and I kept coming back to it. I realized I was starting to feel so close to it that I wasn't sure if I would be able to finish it by myself and that's when I reached out to Little Hurt and Rad Horror to see if they would want to work on it together. I love how we each sort of paint a picture of our own internal struggles during each section. We just said all the things that we never want to say out loud and there's something really beautiful about that."
