Hi Lydia, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
I’ve been really well thank you! Hope you have been too!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Tell Me”?
I wrote the song “Tell Me” knowing I wanted it to have a sort of adventurous and fun vibe as it’s about being able to go and do whatever you want with whoever you want and having your whole life and world right in front of you 💕
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I was inspired by more of a feeling than an event, the feeling of having the whole world in front of me and being able to go anywhere you want with whoever you want.
Any plans to release any sort of video for the track?
I released a lyric/music video for “Tell Me” which I recorded on my phone when I went on a quick trip to Majorca to see some friends. The video is out now on my YouTube channel.
The single comes off your new EP Summer – what’s the story behind the title?
It’s called Summer ‘19 because all of the songs you will hear from it were all recorded during the summer of 2019.
How was the recording and writing process?
I really always enjoy writing and being in the recording studio so it was, as always, a lot of fun.
What was it like to work with Spookzville and how did that relationship develop?
I became involved with Spookzville as I was lucky to meet Big Narstie and I was introduced to Spookzville as he’s produced a lot of his tracks. He sent me a couple of his tracks and one of them really stood out for me, so I wrote and recorded a song on it and that’s how I made my other track ‘Games’.
How much did he get to influence the song?
Spookzville and I weren’t in the same room when I wrote my other track “Games” however him creating the track influenced me enough and the style and vibe of the track is what also helped me create it.
What aspect of Summer did you get to explore on this record?
When I wrote ‘Tell Me’, it was just coming up to summer which is my favourite season so I was already in the mood for something upbeat and fun so with ‘Tell Me’ I had a very open mind and was excited to explore that.
Where else did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?
Inspirations for all my songs always come from any previous life experiences or situations I’ve seen friends or family go through, I’m inspired every day by so many people so there’s never any shortage.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
I’ve got a new song coming out very very soon which I’m super excited about but before that I have “Tell Me -Remix ft. Connek) coming out on the 18th September.
What else is happening next in Lydia SInger’s world?
Right now I’m really excited to be getting ready for a couple more releases and am also focusing on creating more interaction on my social media!
