Sea Girls return with ‘Lonely’ and UK tour including huge Alexandra Palace show

The band's new album 'Homesick' lands next month

Sea Girls have returned with their new single ‘Lonely’ and announced details of their biggest UK tour to date.

The band’s new album ‘Homesick’ is set for release on March 25 via Polydor, following their 2020 debut album ‘Open Your Head’. New track ‘Lonely’ follows recent singles ‘Sick’, ‘Sleeping With You’, ‘Hometown’ and ‘Again Again’.

Discussing the new song, frontman Henry Camamile said: “It was written the day Ennio Morricone died, so was initially in honour of him, a nod to the good, the bad and the ugly – hence the whistle and the line ‘OK Corral’.

“It’s about the best friend I probably should have gone out with, but never did. We both moved on and the band happened and life got in the way for the both of us.”

“I thought a lot about mortality and dying – what it means to be alive and how lucky we are,” Camamile told NME of the inspiration behind the new album. “All the songs came after the pandemic started, so thematically it intensified things.

“The whole environment felt way more intense. We missed quite a significant moment in our lives because we should have been out playing all of our first album shows.”

He added: “We’re moving on and we’re bringing something different. We could have made the first album again but we didn’t. We were really ruthless, we skimmed out any excess. It’s better than the first record and we feel so proud of it.”
