Forget Forgive is the latest single of dutch singer/songwriter Someone and it’s a bare and simple track. Now, over to the artist:

“Forget Forgive is the most personal track I’ve written so far. It’s a really intimate lyric about battling some pretty nasty demons and, in overcoming them, figuring out the kind of person you want to be. I wrote and recorded it all in one night (between the hours of 11PM and 4AM) in my home studio in Amsterdam. Just bass guitar, vocals and a sneaky little mellotron and kick towards the end. Some songs take ages to fine-tune and hone, but this one felt like I was just solidifying a strain of thought that had been flowing around inside my head for ages. Playing the song to other people actually always feels a bit icky, like reading an excerpt from my diary out in public. It’s super naked.”
