Things are going well for this one. Coming off the back of her show-stopping performance during Germany’s Unser Lied für Israelb, Lena is poised to release her fifth album “Only Love, L” next month. And today the Eurovision 2010 winner released the album’s second single “Don’t Lie To Me”.
We won’t. We’ll speak the truth and tell you this is all kinds of fabulous.
Back in November, the German popstrel returned with the uplifting track “Thank You”. Ultimately peaking at number forty on the German charts, it became a massive radio hit. Following weeks of anticipation for the release of her new album, there’s now another preview of what to expect.
The track is another uptempo cut. As with the previous release “Thank You”, Lena once again tackles a personal issue.
But this time she focuses on a relationship — and from the very first verse. As she sings: “you tried to open up but you were scared to lose what we had”. Sounds like things are getting toxic.
The video comes with a totally different concept. Several scenes show conversations on her phone, creating a complex toss-up for you to decipher. Truth, fear, lies…this is a rollercoaster of emotions!
Sonically, it follows the much-loved template of an uptempo track with certain tropical elements. From Berlin to Barbados, baby! In contrast with her previous release, it includes some electronic elements, too. The bridge transitions into an extended chorus which puts a nice final touch to it. Lena once again shows that she’s got it all — we couldn’t be more excited to find out what she’s got in store for us on April 5th!
