British-born, French-raised and London-based Hero Fisher (yes, that’s her real name) is returning to release her sophomore LP Glue Moon. Her career has so far seen her collaborate with Alison Mosshart and Boy George in the Mark Ronson scored ballet Carbon Life, open for The Rolling Stones and Neil Young at Hyde Park, and get shortlisted for the 2014 Glastonbury Emerging Talent Prize.

In 2015 Hero Fisher released her debut album, the critically-appraised Delivery which won her fans in The Horrors and Blur. By turns a blistering rock and roller in the vein of Patti Smith and PJ Harvey, and an experimental folk storyteller à la Jeff Buckley, Hero Fisher resists easy generic categorisation with her protean and cinematic musical storytelling. Able to expertly strike a variety of different narrative poses, she is at once the spurned lover and the fired-up rabble rouser.

With previous singles Sylvie and Push The Boat Out, Hero Fisher shows lyrical imagination that is unique and bountiful. Her matchless new single Lonely is the latest chapter in her development as an artist. She’ll reach many more milestones yet on her creative journey.

Hero Fisher in her new song Lonely provides us with a masterclass in reinvention. Rich in ambience and with a slow crawling beat, Her subtle and tender vocal performance evokes a deep sense of isolation amidst the cluttered mysteries of daily life. Drums, pianos and synths all work in tandem brewing a restless sonic tempest as the song subtly crescendos to its cathartic conclusion.

No automatic alt text available.Lonely could be the soundtrack to a deeply arresting and sad movie, long expanses of sound create a panorama over which Hero lays some of her deepest and most internal lyricism yet. If Lonely is any indicator, she’s already one of the most unique new offerings this year.
Hero Fisher had this to say about the single:

"Lonely is about self delusion. We all wear blinkers to hard truths in one way or another. A common condition people have is loneliness or feeling secluded. I think it’s a sentiment a lot of people can relate to, if they don’t, then they may have mastered self delusion.”
