The song was written among the group of friends in Boston before the pandemic. In a statement, lewloh described the song as “our last triumph – knowing that it would be a long while until we would get to meet together as a group again. I wanted to encapsulate the magic from that night, and retain the sound of honest collaboration between genuine friends”.

lewloh hopes the song – his first since the release of his 2021 album ‘michigan/missinghim’ – will play a key role in his musical and personal journey moving forward.

“‘michigan/missinghim’ was a story about second love – and maybe in releasing ‘Let Me Let You Go’, it will help to create new space for my next lover to come into my life and become the centerpiece muse for my next album,” he said.

‘michigan/missinghim’ – which featured previously released singles ‘Summer Boy’ and ‘Cold These Days’ – was lewloh’s sophomore album, following his 2017 debut album ‘Lullacry’, which he released under the moniker Lew.
