Marti West Shares Brand New Single ‘Somebody New’

The lead single from the London artist's sophomore album 'Talking To Strangers'....

Marti West has shared his latest single ‘Somebody New’.

The track is a whole-hearted embrace for West’s indie-rock background, a glimpse into this spring’s upcoming album ‘Talking To Strangers’. From start to finish, the artist constructs a warm listen that favours an acoustic instrumentation, setting the scene for his resonant songwriting. West’s mellow tones carry the track’s deeper sentiments, a whirlwind of emotions that entail a fading relationship.

Raised in a musically gifted family, West quickly started to form his own creative inclinations. The past 6 years have seen the artist fine-tuning his own sound, carving an independent path for himself where he now releases under Marti West Music. 

‘Talking To Strangers’ follows 2018’s debut ‘VIII,’ a hazy collection of tracks that blend melancholia and longing into one. Live performance feels like a thriving environment in which to re-imagine West’s material, feeling all the more ambitious in the year ahead.

‘Somebody New’ marks a new chapter for Marti West, seizing his next full body of work with a new perspective and approach.

Speaking on the track, West explains: “‘Somebody New’ is about coming to terms with a relationship that has broken down. The lyrics portray a sense of denial about the ending of the relationship and paranoia about a partner moving on. Sometimes in these times we can think or act irrationally, and ‘Somebody New’ is about those little moments of madness – and dancing through the pain.”
