Chvrches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry recently dropped her debut solo single, “Are You Awake?”

The piano-driven ballad was written with Tobias Jesso Jr. and Matthew Koma, who also produced the song.

“I was thinking a lot about loneliness and homesickness, and as soon as Tobias started playing the chords, the lyrics and melody came to me really quickly,” Mayberry said in a statement. “I finished the song with my friend Matthew Koma, who really understood what I was trying to say.”

She added, “I never really thought I’d write a piano ballad, or a solo album full stop, so life really is full of surprises. I am really looking forward to this chapter, and can’t wait for people to hear more of the music.”

Last month, Mayberry had announced her decision to release solo songs.

Meanwhile, the singer will embark on a solo tour this fall with stops in the U.S., Europe, and the U.K.
