Brampton songwriter Alessia Cara has returned with a new single called “Trust My Lonely.” Teaming with production team Pop & Oak, Cara’s new track is a bright, lightly reggae-tinged record. It’s a defiant track that finds the singer rising out of a toxic place to see more clearly. While it echoes what many might experience in a bad relationship, Cara’s record is more about battling with yourself, as she explained in a tweet accompanying the release.
“It’s human instinct to hold onto things that aren’t good for us sometimes because we’re afraid of being without them,” she said. “They become our comfort. In some cases, it’s a toxic relationship, in others, a bad friendship, or in my case — and the reason I wrote this song — internal black clouds and voices of doubt.
