Alex Lahey Releases New Song “They Wouldn't Let Me In”
Australian alt-rock singer-songwriter Alex Lahey released a new song “They Wouldn't Let Me In” along with a music video on March 30, 2023.
The song is the fourth single off of her upcoming third studio album “The Answer Is Always Yes”, which is set to be released on May 19, 2023.
The track was written and produced by Alex Lahey and Chris Collins.
The accompanying video was directed by Claire Giuffre and Alex Lahey.
“After watching the brilliant tv series 'Heartstopper,' I spent a lot of time thinking about my own experiences growing up as a queer teenager,” Alex Lahey said of the song in ta statement. “Although I was extremely lucky that the majority of my experience was filled with joy, acceptance and love, it wasn't always smooth sailing. This song is inspired by those tougher moments – not being allowed to attend my high school girlfriend's school formal, being excluded from conventional romantic rites of passage, moments of isolation and feeling like I couldn't relate to anyone around me. 'They Wouldn't Let Me In' is by far the most direct song I've ever written about this time.”
