Lauv just teased a new song called "Sad Forever" which hears him opening up about his mental struggles. "I don't wanna be sad forever / I don't wanna be sad no more / I don't wanna wake up and wonder / What the hell am I doing this for?" he sings in the chorus.
Of course, his Filipino fans already heard the song in full (and will hopefully star in the music video too!) during his recently-concluded Manila show last May 20. But the 58-second preview gives the rest of the world time to fully take in the lyrics.
Last April, the 24-year-old pop visionary penned a lengthy message to his fans, detailing how he started to fall out of love with music and falling in love back again. He went on to announce that he decided "rather than waiting to release a bunch of songs that may or may not still feel relevant to my life by the time they come out, I wanted to tell the story as it happened."
Thus, his upcoming album ~how i'm feeling~ will be released track-by-track as it's being recorded during his world tour. Apart from "Drugs and the Internet", the record will also include "Sims" which is the other song he premiered during his historic Manila show.
