The singer's 'The Planting Seeds' Asia tour will take him to Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Seoul and Manila

Singaporean singer-songwriter lewloh has released a confessional new single titled ‘Wasted’ alongside the announcement of his 2022 ‘The Planting Seeds’ Asia tour.

The single was released on all streaming platforms on October 7, and sees the singer putting out what he describes as his “‘thank u, next’ anthem but without the next” in a heartfelt song about an amicable breakup.

Sharing his surprise at how non-destructive the breakup that inspired ‘Wasted’ was in an Instagran post, lewloh concluded: “Anyway, all of this is to say that I’m glad our story had no villains or heroes.. only two souls trying to do their best”.
