taken from new album ‘michigan/missinghim’ due 27th August.
‘cold these days’ is about the imprint that a heartbreaker leaves on their victim. The latter starts to grieve the death of that connection while hearing the echoes from the remnants of that love.
lewloh says: ‘cold these days’ was written on a cold rainy night in October – I was accompanied by an overwhelming wave of loneliness, and was compelled to lay it all out in song.
I remember tracking this in a small studio next to a cemetery in Nashville with two friends – my producers Baerd (Isaiah Beard) and Joshua Evan Lee. We were cooped up in west Tennessee for a week, and this was one of the songs that ripened into full fruition.”
The follow-up single after April’s ‘summer boy’, the healing process moves on from that of regret into a slow and painful acceptance. This is the second of three singles leading up to lewloh’s sophomore album michigan/missinghim due in Fall 2021.
About the artist:
Lewis Loh, who goes by the artist handle lewloh, is a 24-year-old solo artist and songwriter with an uncanny sensitivity towards love, healing, and hope. Since the release of his debut album ‘Lullacry’ in 2017, Lewis has been steadily winning the hearts of folk-pop lovers in Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, USA, and the Southeast Asia region.
Being LGBTQ+, Asian, and a third-culture kid are key parts of lewloh’s identity as it brings about a unique perspective of not being able to fit in, often in more ways than one. Lewis’ songs deal with the themes of love, trauma, abandonment, healing, and hope. This makes him an important voice for his generation of young listeners and musician peers. Coinciding with his graduation from Berklee with a degree in songwriting, Lewloh’s upcoming full-length album is currently in production and due for Fall of 2021.
