Alonestar is the moniker under which rapper and producer Jethro Sheeran goes (yes, he is related to Ed Sheeran) and now he is back with ‘Lovelorn’, his ‘strongest and most powerful song… to date’.
The track features the bright, talented vocals of Rosie Ribbons and was also produced with the help of Massive Attack’s Angelo Bruschini and Damon Reece.
The track, which draws on past experiences for both Sheeran and Ribbons, who co-wrote the song, presents ‘something fresh and different to anything else out there at the moment.’ Jethro notes that he ‘dug deep to exercise the darkness in this track, and fell into the depths of my soul when coming up with the concept.’ The song tackles ideas of heartbreak and unrequited love, all with a distinctive hip-hop/rap edge.
Having already shot straight to no.3 on the itunes chart with his debut album, Cornerstone, Alonestar is one to keep an eye on in the near future. Watch this space!
