This latest song of Rita Ora is also written by the BRIT Award winner and close friend Lewis Capaldi, who also plays the guitar in the track and participates as a backing vocalist. The video, directed by award-winning director Dave Meyers (Kendrick Lamar, Billie Eilish & Travis Scott) shows Rita, a fast-paced pop star.
About the track, Rita Ora says:
“To my friends:
I haven’t sat down to talk to you for so long. I’m more than late! I thought I would write something longer to share my thoughts and intentions with you because all of you are with me on this journey. The last year has been like the end of a chapter and the beginning of a new and exciting one!
One of the most liberating feelings for me is playing and creating music. You all know that music will always be my first love, even when I work on different projects, I always write and make music … and here’s something new!
I’m so excited to release my new song “How To Be Lonely”, a song I’m very proud of. I liked working with Lewis on the track and it was a lot of fun. He is a great talent and person of the moment and I really recognized myself in the text when he sent it to me.
Traveling the world, working and studying different countries and being on the move all the time, over the years I have learned to enjoy my own company and to appreciate every interaction. This song has been inspired by many different periods in my life; moments when I realized that we are all valuable people, something that we should cherish, and while communication is important, we do not need the approval of others. When you are alone, remember that you are enough and that you have the power to make your own choices. Enjoy being yourself!
Thank you SO MUCH for the incredible support that you have come with me on this incredible journey and for letting me do what I love most. I can’t wait to hear more! “
