Lo Lauren Premieres New Song “Only One on Earth” on BBC Radio 1
London-based singer-songwriter Lo Lauren premiered a new song “Only One on Earth” on BBC Radio 1's Future Pop with Mollie King.
The song is her second single, following the debut song “Never the One” released back in June.
The track draws a tale of unrequited lust with the playful effervescence of noughties nostalgia.
It was written by Lauren Miles, Chris Chordz, and Andreas Hedegaard Mikkelsen. Produced by Andysocialclub and Slwmo.
Lo Lauren said of the song. “'Only One on Earth' is about putting yourself out there, telling someone you like them and being flat out rejected. It's heartbreaking, savage and embarrassing! And in moments when your feelings are unrequited and you're knocked back, it's suddenly like everyone around you is extra loved up and happy, which leaves you feeling even more sad and alone. So this is a cry for human connection, acceptance and love and I had so much fun writing it”
- The accompanying music video was filmed by Sam Sure.
Lo Lauren said of the video, “For this video we wanted to hone in on me really feeling like the only one on earth. So we start in a deserted Simmons bar (a classic soho must!) before going outside where it's giving major zombie apocalypse vibes. To be fair, I was a zombie during filming this as we literally had to get up at 3am to film on an empty Oxford Street (hiring it out was kinda out of budget lol) but it was cool and surreal to see places that are usually so buzzing and full of life, so desolate. Same as for Never The One, it was proper DIY and so fun making this video - it literally consisted of me running around for 20 minutes while my bestie Sam tried to capture as much footage as possible. I then edited it at home which I've come to really enjoy.”
