Here to inject a dose of body-moving soul into a particularly frosty November is Norfolk-hailed artist Mullally with his brand new track “Lonely Too Long”.
Simultaneously exploring universal themes of loneliness and also the all-encompassing first glimmers of falling in love, the track is a testimony to the talents of the swiftly rising musician. Packed with funk-filled production, wistful lyricism and the gravelly vocal range of Mullally – it’s an instant melodic hit which also opens up a much-needed conversation on mental health and loneliness at a particularly apt time.
“I wanted to capture the sadness of being lonely and the joy of finding someone, all in the same track,” explains Mullally. “This track is really close to my heart because even though it’s written about a very particular point in my life, it manages to pop back up and be relevant over and over again as life continues. I wrote this almost 3 years ago with Eg White and Jon Green, two amazing musicians, so I’m thrilled that I can finally share this song. I’m also excited to be working with Marmalade Trust to bring awareness around loneliness in the UK.”
Since his 2016 debut, Mullally has sold out headline shows in LA, London, as well as landing coveted support slots for some of the UK’s biggest pop artists including Jess Glynne, Anne-Marie, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, Clean Bandit and more. And if “Lonely Too Long” is anything to go by, 2020 is set to be a big year for Mullally.
