Sheryl Crow‘s song ‘Lonely Alone’ gets a music video! We’re super stoked to get the song featuring such a country icon as Willie Nelson. This song comes in celebration of the 1-year mark for Sheryl’s album Threads. This song is a journey we just had to take you on, so let’s get to it.
“I wrote the song, Lonely Alone, with Willie in mind. It’s was written as kind of a barside cowboy noir with romantic Spanish inflections, but the song has taken on new meaning during these times. I hope people find the same comfort in this song that I have always found in Willie. I never feel closer to home than when I am singing with him – I know a lot of people feel the same way, even if they’re just singing along with him on the radio. I felt that this was the perfect song and the perfect sentiment to celebrate Threads with.”
We’re are taking it to the good old roots with this one. The style of the video screams old school videography and slight noir with the lyrical vibes. While we grab us some whiskey, the classic country serenade keeps on. This hit us right where we know it should. That small place in your chest, resonating with the atmosphere of a sleepy old bar and a romanticized lonely southern town.
We see the impressions Sheryl was going for, and she indeed nailed it. Lately, she’s had her motherly loving ear and eye keeping out for us during these uncertain and lonely times. The lyrics embrace the need for a little company with the video echoing the sentiment with animals providing that support needed. Whether you’re a fan of country or not, we all know the pain of loneliness. We all have known being ‘Lonely Alone.’
