2019 was undeniably a big year for both Lauv and Troye, so it makes perfect sense that the two have now decided to link up for the ultimate heartbreak anthem: “i’m so tired…,” co-written alongside LELAND, Michael Pollack and Oscar Görres.
The duo effortlessly trade sweet verses on the reflective and triggering ode to love lost, which Troye describes as “a heartbreak song about an inescapable person.”
“I’m so tired of love songs, tired of love songs/ Tired of love songs, tired of love/ Just wanna go home, wanna go home/ Wanna go home, woah,” Lauv and Troye croon across the heavy acoustics, dreamy atmospherics and propulsive synth pulse.
“Lauv is such a great songwriter, and him and I were writing together for his project when the song came about,” Troye added in a statement. “We ended up creating an accidental duet, and I couldn’t be happier to be on the song.”
It’s simple, sticky and sweet. The kind of earworm you’d come to expect from these two mega talents. They did not disappoint.
