Watch: Freddie Long – Sober

After spending the last eighteen months working on new music, Freddie Long is back today with one of the most powerful releases of the week.

Serving as Long’s first single from his forthcoming debut album ‘LOVE/HATE’ (out next year), ‘Sober’ is a raw and brutally honest pop-rock anthem which finds the artist singing about turning to alcohol as a way to deal with a break-up.

The song marks a new beginning for Long, who has spent the last few years experimenting with different sounds:

“I’ve always felt like I’ve been trying to find the right fit for my music. The previous few projects I’ve enjoyed and loved working on but this project has felt different. I feel like I’ve connected with my roots. This music makes me feel something, on and off stage.”

The accompanying video for the track features drummer Kieran Leigh, and was filmed in an empty garage with the help of friends:

“I’ve always been hands-on when it comes to visuals, I enjoy creating and coming up with concepts. This one was no different. We managed to pull this shoot together within one day and I’m very proud of what we achieved.”
