I’m very well thank you, and hope you’re too! Chillaxing now that my GCSE’s are over and been busy in the recording studio again writing new material.
2. Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Truth Hurts”?
My single ‘Truth Hurts’, which comes from my new EP ‘Rebellious Teen’, was great fun to write because I felt as though I dug into deeper emotions that I hadn’t yet explored.
3. Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
I witnessed an event that inspired me to write ‘Truth Hurts’.It’s a song about betrayal by someone who was considered a close friend. I watched this scene unfold and but, as the title suggests,, the truth does hurt.
4. How was the filming process and experience behind the video?
The video was so much fun to film, I always have an amazing team surrounding me in everything I do when it comes to music and filming this wasn’t any different. I had the amazing House of Ikons team with me and they were a pleasure to work with as usual. I’ve actually just finished filming with the team again for my next single ’Never Said’ due to be released later in the year.
5. The single comes off your new album Rebellious Teen – what’s the story behind the title? My new EP ‘Rebellious Teen’ is coming out with me being the age of 16, I would say that it’s at this time that you start making your first big mistakes in life that sculpture you into who you’re going to become as a person, it’s when you start going to the parties that you wake up from regretting what you did and what you said because you were ‘Out of Control’, which is one of the reasons for that single which is also in the EP. You learn who your true friends are during stressful times, the ones who have always got your back which I wrote about in my final single from this EP ‘Way of Life’.
6. How was the recording and writing process?
The recording and Writing process was brilliant as always, working with Simon Brown and Jamie Sellers to create the songs was insane and particularly to see how I grew as an artist.
7. What role does Buckinghamshire play in your writing?
Buckinghamshire has been my main home and I couldn’t of asked for a better one; I live in Herts and Cambridgeshire some of the year as well.
Buckinghamshire is where I started my music career, where I grew up and continue to grow. I’ve always had a lot of support with gigs, especially in Milton Keynes, for which I’m so grateful . It holds many good memories, including my first singing competition when I was nine, which I won and I’ve never looked back from that.
8. What aspect of teenage angsty did you get to explore on this record?
The EP ‘Rebellious Teen’ is rollercoaster of emotions (much like a teenager) and I hope everyone can find a song they like and can connect to.
9. Any plans to hit the road?
I have many big things coming up which I’m so incredibly excited for and I know that with the amazing support I get from my family and friends I’ll do my absolute best. Overseas just maybe!!!
10. What else is happening next in Lydia SInger’s world?
School is coming up and I become an official senior as I go into sixth form. I’m also excited to meet new people, both in and out of school, as I go forward especially in my career. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
