Rising German singer-songwriter Zoe Wees has dropped her latest single “Lonely,” an emotional and deeply personal track which details Wees’ mental health struggles. The singer-songwriter wrote the track during the holiday season, when loneliness often sets in the most for people.

“At first, I didn’t like the song at all and I stopped the session and went home,” Wees said in a statement. “But a few weeks later, I couldn’t get it out of my head and started working on it again. It took me a while to be comfortable with it but now I love the song and its honesty.”

“Lonely” marks Wees’ first new music this year, and continues the momentum following her debut EP, Golden Wings, released last May. The EP earned over 1.2 million streams globally, and featured her two biggest hits so far, “Control” (which entered the top 20 in US Pop Radio) and “Girls Like Us.” Last year, she also collaborated with a number of major artists, including with Norway’s DJ Kygo, on his song “Love Me Now,” and R&B star 6LACK, appearing on a remix of “That’s How It Goes.”

“Releasing music has created so many new, great friendships and given me so many opportunities, however, I’ve often found myself in a lonely place even in a crowded room,” Wees added. “I also realized that your own feelings are more important than anything physical and that I want to be loved for being me and not for anything else. I’m growing day-by-day, and feel hopeful even though sometimes it makes me sad. I hope this song helps anyone notice they’re not alone in thinking the same.”

Later this month, Wees will embark on her first full-length tour. The shows begin March 29 in Vienna, Austria, and include a number of stops throughout Europe and the UK. She will also appear at various festivals throughout the summer, including Lovestream Festival and Lollapalooza Stockholm. For more information and tickets, visit her official website.
