Jethro Sheeran aka Alonestar (Ed Sheeran’s cousin), has been working alongside the live band members of Massive Attack to produce this hedonist, sexy, dark track which also sees Girls Aloud’s Sarah Harding feature in the breath-taking video. It has already been picked up extensively around the UK including plays on BBC Radio, BBC 1Xtra, and Kiss FM.
‘Lovelorn’ tells the story of a heartbroken woman who falls in love, but the lust of her life doesn’t love her back – something we can all relate to!
Also featuring on the chorus is top 10 singer Rosie Ribbons, her haunting vocals sound like a falling beautiful angel. This sits perfectly on an addictive resonating drum beat recorded by Damon Reece (Massive Attack), and flawless production of the song by Jethro Sheeran and Angelo Bruschini (Massive Attack).
And to even more add intrigue- the song itself is about past life experiences for both Jethro Sheeran and Rosie Ribbons, which added to an overly emotional ride when writing and recording the song together!
Jethro said: “Lovelorn is the strongest and most powerful song I have written & produced to date, it reflects my new sound and style. It’s something fresh, and different to anything else out there at the moment. I dug deep to exercise the darkness in this track, and fell into the depths of my soul when coming up with the concept.”
Alonestar’s debut album ‘Cornerstone’ went straight to No3 in the iTunes charts following its release in early 2016, and this new offering is expected to create a similar reaction when released!
Alonestar has previously won two EIA Awards, two Exposure Music Awards, and wrote all of the raps for Ed Sheeran’s SBTV & Live Room Performances, plus his debut single ‘Skyla Rain’ features Ed Sheeran in the video.
He was also the executive producer for Bars and Melody’s platinum selling album ‘143’ which went straight to No4 in the official UK charts.
