2016 Eurovision runner-up Dami Im has released her brand new single “Lonely Cactus”.
In a recent interview, she told of the story behind the song, and how it came to be.
“While I was working on promoting my last single ‘Paper Dragon’, I became obsessed with cacti. I really wanted to write a song about a cactus and it started off as an idea about myself.”
She then added:
“On one hand, I feel lonely and want to be around other people and on the other hand I quickly get annoyed and prickly around people and just want to be left alone. I took the idea and we tweaked it to mean it’s a bout a friend rather than myself because everyone knows someone who is that way.”
Lonely Cactus is the second release from her upcoming album, her first album since changing record labels in 2020.
