‘Lilies’ by Loney dear is out now

Taken from the forthcoming self-titled album on Real World Records, Loney dear's 'Lilies' is now available to stream and download. The track features fellow Swedish indie artist Jay-Jay Johanson.

"I'm not sure how I came to think of it, but I realised I really wanted Jay-Jay to sing the second chorus of Lilies, and when it was just a few days til the album master deadline I sent him the song. Also appearing is the sensitively fantastic vocalist S Carey singing lush backing vocals. I wish we had done collaborations on this song and the album, but the future is still wide open."
