Saro Contemplates Love On New Single “Die Alone,” Announces New EP
Valentine’s Day has come and gone. But some of us will be feeling the after effects for days to come. That’s especially the case for the #ForeverAlone crew. Luckily, Los Angeles-based hitmaker Saro is here with an anthem to soundtrack the morbid comedown. Today (February 15), he unveiled “Die Alone,” and it is as moody as the title implies. Over a haunting production, the rising star contemplates a relationship on the brink of collapse with frank honesty. “I woke up next to you again. I lie here wishing you were him,” he croons on the opening lines. “This isn’t love but the lack thereof.”
Things get even more bleak and eventually peak with one final realization: “Maybe meant to die alone.” Striking and direct, it has a lot of potential. And it pairs well with the equally evocative, Alex Cook-directed video. Saro opened up about his latest song in a press release. “‘Die Alone’ is about the hopelessness you feel in a failing relationship. The song gives me a morbid sense of relief by accepting the sad truth that I may never find a lasting love,” he explained. “It also toys with my sentiment that everyone is alone in death. There’s no taking anyone with you when you enter the void.” He confirmed that the single serves as the title track to his new EP.
Due to arrive May 3, it follows his 2017 debut In Loving Memory and last year’s Boy Afraid. The tracklist includes the previously released “Please,” and, all things considered, this is shaping up to be another win from the talented artist. Watch the “Die Alone” video below!
