Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry Shares Debut Solo Song ‘Are You Awake?’

    Chvrches singer Lauren Mayberry has released her debut solo single, ‘Are You Awake?’. The track was co-written with Tobias Jesso Jr. and producer Matthew Koma. Check it out below.

    “‘Are You Awake?’ is a song that started on a rainy day last December with Tobias Jesso Jr.,” Mayberry said in a statement. “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. I finished the song with my friend Matthew Koma, who really understood what I was trying to say.”

    “For a long time, I couldn’t imagine doing anything outside of Chvrches but I think some things that I needed to write had to be done from purely my own point of view,” Mayberry continued. “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.”

    Mayberry is heading out on her first-ever solo tour in September and October. Chvrches’ most recent album was 2021’s Screen Violence.
