Music artists Lindsey Stirling & Mako released a brand-new single titled “Lose You Now” which is currently available to stream/download via BMG.
Lindsey Stirling & Mako – Lose You Now
“Lose You Now,” which is a tribute to Stirling’s late father and best friend, is an emotive pop single that touches upon how it feels to lose a loved one. The track stems from Stirling’s instrumental-only release “Guardian” which was off her latest chart-topping studio album Artemis. Co-written by Stirling & Mako (Alex Seaver), “Lose You Now” was produced by Jason Evigan who is known for his work with Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha, and Jonas Brothers. The official music video for the single was directed and edited by Stirling and Stephen Mallett.
“This song was on my album as an instrumental song, but I always knew it was really special. I am so grateful for Mako for the lyrics he wrote to ‘Lose You Now’ because he perfectly captured the feelings I’d never been able to put into words. I actually balled like a baby the first time I heard his version. I felt like my father and best friend (both of whom have passed away) were giving me a big warm hug. Creating this song and the music video has brought me a sense of peace. The video is full of special memories and signs that represent the people I’ve lost. I used to have cereal picnics with my dad. Whenever I see a monarch butterfly, I feel like my friend Gavi is checking in on me. The little fox stuffed animal represents my baby niece, who passed away this summer. These little Easter eggs and many more make this video so special to me. Now, as we release it, I hope to share that hug and healing with the world. We can all use it right now.”Lindsey Stirling
“This was a really special song for me to be a part of. I was so lucky to meet Lindsey while working on her recent album when I worked on ‘Love Goes On And On’ with her and Amy Lee. More importantly, we became friends in that period of time. When word got to me that Lindsey was looking for a special vocal to accompany ‘Guardian,’ I remember being so completely moved by the subject of the song. Something about getting to know Lindsey and feeling a very sincere sense of care for her, the vocal just absolutely tumbled out. I remember getting choked up trying to even record it, it took me a few tries. I’m really grateful to be involved in this and looking forward to sharing the message of this song with everyone out there.”Mako
