Single: "I'm So Tired" 30.01.2019
Album: "~how i'm feeling~"
Today, Lauv releases “Sad Forever”, the latest track off his upcoming debut album ~how i’m feeling~.” The song was written in the midst of his own struggle with mental health of which he detailed here. Lauv will be donating all proceeds from the track to various mental health organizations across the world, including Time To Change in the UK (visit site here), that work to de-stigmatize mental health issues. See full list of organizations below and click here to watch the video which was shot live in concert in Manila during Lauv’s largest headlining show to date.
In Lauv’s words: "I wrote sad forever at a time when I was extremely low. I was dealing with depression and OCD but hadn’t really recognised or gotten the help I needed. While I was hesitant at first, asking for help was an important first step. Mental illness is something that is often times not apparent to the outside world. It’s an ongoing journey with ups and downs and finding stability is a process that I’m still heavily working on. This song was written in a dark place but by donating all proceeds to mental health organisations I can only hope it helps others take their first step to ask for help too.”
Last month, Lauv announced his "~how i'm feeling~ (autumn tour, 2019)”. The 19- city run is set to kick off on October 5th in Washington, DC, and hit cities across US, UK, Europe, Australia and wrap on November 11th in New Zealand.
