On March 16th, Fickle Friends will release ‘You Are Someone Else’ – their hotly anticipated debut album – to the world. Today, they share the album opener ‘Wake Me Up’ just as they prepare to head out on their massive UK tour next week.

Like the hugely popular singles that have preceded it, ‘Wake Me Up’ is a classic Fickle Friends shimmery pop anthem that kicks off a terrifically irresistible debut album. Over the last year it’s also become a pinnacle of their hugely popular live set too. Lyrically, it see’s frontwoman Natti Shiner play around with some of the themes that re-occur on the record – relationship paranoia and angsty obsession. On writing the track, Natti says – “‘Wake Me Up’ song is about wanting a relationship to work so bad but knowing deep down, it’s not going anywhere. It was the last song we wrote for the album”.
