Kicking off her solo career, Romy Madley Croft of The xx has released her first solo single titled “Lifetime.” The debut features production from Jamie xx, Fred Again, Jay Anonymous, and Marta Salogni, and was written and recorded during the lockdown.
“My intention with this song is to celebrate life, togetherness, to appreciate the moment before it’s gone,” she says in a statement posted to Instagram September 29.
“I think subconsciously the upbeat energy of the song is a reaction to the stillness and anxiety I was feeling in lockdown. I was missing the pace of the outside world, spontaneous moments, the euphoria of dance floors, of love and connections with my friends and family.”
“I realized when everything was stripped back, simple moments of togetherness meant the most to me.”
