Cat Burns Premieres New Song “know that you're not alone” on BBC Radio 1
London-based singer-songwriter Cat Burns premiered a new song “know that you're not alone” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song follows up the collaborative song Perfect with Sam Smith and Jessie Reyez, which was released back in July.
As solo single, the song is the follow up to "You Don't Love Me Anymore" released back in May.
Cat Burns described the song as “for anyone feeling lost and confused in their life, that they aren't the only one feeling this way.”
The track was written by Charlie Martin, Joe Housley, Britten Newbill, Inverness, Cirkut, Rob Nelsen, and Henry Walter. Produced by Inverness and The Nocturns.
- Cat Burns told Clara Amfo about the song, “I think I was definitely it was before I turned 23. So it was before I saw you in May. And I was just kind of having a wobble at that point. And I was talking to a lot of people in my life who equally were having like the same kind of thing where they're just like, 'What is life, and what is its meaning, and like where do I fit in to this, and where am I meant to be? Where am I meant to be going?' I feel like I'm supposed to have it all sorted out, especially when you're like 15 or 14 being 23 or being 25 feels really like old and it feels like, 'oh my gosh, okay, somehow this time, I'm gonna have this, this, this, and this.' And then you get to that age and you're like, 'that's not gonna happen, and it's probably not gonna happen for like a month or 10 years.' So, like, where am I and where am I meant to be. And that's kind of how the song wrote itself really.”
She told DORK about the song in an interview, “I wrote it before I turned 23. And I don't know, I just think I was having a lot of conversations with people in their 20s who just had the same experience that I had, which was feeling like they don't really know what they're doing. Not really sure where we're going, what the meaning of life itself is, and just what we're doing, really. And I thought it would be cool to make a euphoric movie-esque kind of song that people can just jump around to and listen to, and just some freedom to know that they're not alone, essentially.”
