Tones And I Premieres New Song “Eyes Don't Lie” on triple j
- Australian singer-songwriter Toni Watson, aka Tones And I premiered a new song “Eyes Don't Lie” along with a music video on triple j.
The song is the first taste from her forthcoming sophomore album.
It was written by Toni Watson. The video was directed by Tones and I alongside Nick Kozakis and Liam Kelly.
“'Eyes Don't Lie' is written about a large loss of someone/something,” explains Tones And I. “Resenting the person/feeling you get and realising it was a toxic person/feeling all along. Someone taking advantage of you and you taking advantage of yourself. Feeling better off and putting that last bit of bitterness behind you.”
She continued, “The music video reflects being alone, but not lonely. Escaping something that hurt and happy to be wherever else, even though it's over. I am still reflecting and telling my story one last time, before I move on.”
The new album is expected to be released in August 2022. “I've already started this next album that's coming out in August; it's very different,” she explained. “I kind of just told my managers when I started writing it when I was overseas. I was like, 'I have to put this out'. I need to put it out quick because otherwise I'll get sick of it. So I just told my managers, 'I'm dropping an album'.”
