Norwegian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sondre Lerche has just released a new single, “I’m Always Watching You,” that is sure to give you the creeps. The synth-pop track finds Lerche gleefully dancing the fine line of a paranoid ex that’s still pining over his former lover and full on stalker that oddly enjoys the pain as he sings, “I’m always watching/If I can’t be with you/ I’m always watching you/Call it voyeurism or masochism.”
The singer, known for writing tongue-in-cheek tunes, alerted fans to the new single via his email newsletter noting that digital voyeurism is the new normal that we’re all susceptible to including him. Read the full email from Lerche below.
“Hey there – I wanted you to be the first to hear this new song I’ve made, and to give you a special extended version that won’t be available anywhere else.
This is a pathetic love song about longing, digital voyeurism, and the strange substitute for intimacy that we’re so easily drawn to – the act of watching someone from a afar, and foolishly filling in the blanks in our minds and hearts. I wrote it this winter, and recorded it with producer Kato Ådland in Bergen this June. I hope you’ll get a kick out of it, as I have.
I’m Always Watching You will be available everywhere else by tomorrow morning. There’s also a video, and it may leak any second now.
If you’re into it, pass it on.
I’ve already announced a big Norwegian PLEASURE tour, and more 2017 tour dates will follow shortly.
Thanks for listening, watching and sharing.
There’s more to come.
All the best,
