Alessia Cara has released a new single off the upcoming album The Pains of Growing. The track is called Trust My Lonely, and we think that it will immediately climb the pop and dance charts. This is the second track that she has put out ahead of the new album. The first track, Growing Pains, dropped in June and it was met with positive vibes.
In the bright, colourful new video for “Trust My Lonely”, Cara once again dons the symbolic oversized suit she wore in the “Growing Pains” video, as well as recent appearances on Fallon, Colbert and The Today Show. Cara told the Today crew: “It's an artistic way of symbolizing the idea of growing up. Sometimes you kind of feel like you're drowning and you feel like you're not ready for the roles life throws at you so this was my way of symbolizing it in an artistic way.” Cara also took to her Instagram to help add some clarity, saying “the oversized suit visually represents the idea of growing up too fast, or trying to fit ourselves into roles that can feel too large to handle. we aren’t always prepared for life when it runs towards us full speed. sometimes it feels like we’re drowning in it a little, sometimes it’s mundane and stagnant. that’s what the suit is.”
