Since the release of her 2016 debut album, Lindsey Abudei has been away from the scene, perfecting her craft off the back of art and music residencies like her British Council ColabNowNow 2019 Art Residency, Red Bull Music Academy 2018 selection and more. She returns this month to unveil One On The Outside, a song that kicks off work for the release of Kaleidoscope, her forthcoming EP set to be released later in 2020. One On The Outside breaks the three-year hiatus since the release of …And The Bass Is Queen, her exceptional debut album.
Sublime and bare, One On The Outside is a ballad that draws attention to the feelings of an outlier wanting previous notions of expectations stripped away. Although its literal interpretation paints a relationship scenario, it speaks to the feelings and desires of outliers to be accepted for who they are. Speaking about the new song, Lindsey said
“I’m interested in human experiences in every sphere; my personal ones and of those around me. As an outlier myself, I am about finding freedom in ourselves, our stories, our conversations, our lives and our communion with each other. This song perfectly captures all this and more.”
