We all need "me time." Although the pandemic has forced a lot of us into solitude, that time has proven to be much needed for a lot of people. On "Time Alone,' twenty-five-year-old alt-pop singer/songwriter ABISHA speaks on the regenerative powers of time alone. It's easy to get overwhelmed by the day-to-day hustle of life and sometimes the best thing you can do to stay on track is step away and take a much-needed break.
This is ABISHA's first song over Afro-pop production and she enjoyably pairs the upbeat groove of Afropop with her honest and introspective lyrics. Explaining the sentiment behind the song, ABISHA shared,
“I feel that 'Time Alone' is a really uplifting song, despite it's pretty serious and sensitive meaning. I wrote the song about needing to escape and have a minute to myself when I'm struggling with feeling down or overwhelmed. At the time that I wrote this, I would get overwhelmed really easily whether it was emotionally, socially or just because I had a long list of things to do and didn't know where to start. I think it's quite a relatable feeling - when everything just feels too much - and I wanted to make the song uplifting in order to normalize it and make people feel like it's okay to feel like that sometimes, we all do. It's okay to take some time out, bury yourself in your covers and just zone out and breath. I love afrobeat songs, I think that afrobeat is a genre that you can't not dance to, and I haven't made an afrobeat song before, so it was something that I wanted to do for sure. I hope that it makes people feel good!”
