Rising independent pop sensation ALI returned with her latest single, “Lonely“, following the success of her previous singles “When the Summer’s Back” and “Hourglass“. The track, born out of a moment of intense frustration, provides listeners with a cathartic journey through the artist’s emotional landscape.

ALI, born and raised in a quaint town in west Catalonia, Spain, made the bold move to London at 18 to pursue her passion for songwriting in the vibrant heart of Europe’s arts culture. Influenced by luminaries such as LÉON and Taylor Swift, ALI’s mellow contemporary pop sound captures the essence of her personal journey, exploring the challenges and experiences of living far from home.

The inspiration behind “Lonely” stems from a universal theme: the struggle with judgment and the weight of decision-making. ALI explains, “That moment when you ask for help and everyone’s like ‘anything you decide will be the right choice,’ and when you finally go for it, everyone judges it and has something to say about it or would’ve done it differently.”

The track, created two years ago, was a visceral response to a difficult moment in ALI’s life. Collaborating with her producer, Yuriy Salud, she poured her emotions into the lyrics and melodies, crafting a dramatic, gloomy, and intense pop experience. ALI reflects on the song’s transformative power, stating, “Now I look past it and somehow feel thankful for moments like those which have helped grow as a person and as a songwriter.

As ALI continues to make waves in the music scene, her distinct blend of poignant storytelling and contemporary pop melodies promises to resonate with a broad audience. “Lonely” is a testament to her growth as an artist, encapsulating the highs and lows of the human experience.
