Bittersweet, dark and disturbing, "Cry Alone" is the peak of Lil Peep. The song was recorded in 2017, before the young rapper's death, and he presents it singing about the intersection of drugs and death. "I do not want to die alone right now, I just made a line-of-punch right now," says Peep in his characteristic accent during the mysterious track hook.
"Cry Alone" is the first song of Peep's second studio album, Come when you are sober pt. two, which will premiere on November 9. In a statement, the director of "Cry Alone" explained how the video was formed more than a year ago.
"Peep and I recorded 'Cry Alone' in May 2017. Originally, he thought it was going to be a song included in COWYS1, but it ended up fitting better in COWYS2 which inevitably postponed the release of the video, "Beck wrote." It was around 1 A.M. When I saw Peep on Twitter asking if someone could bring McDonalds to Berkeley … After listening to some different songs and discussing ideas, we chose "Cry Alone". "It feels good," he said. "It's the only song that fits the energy of the night."
Come when you are sober pt. two It is run by the frequent collaborators and producers of Peep, Smokeasac and George Astasio of IIVI.
"Gus was my best friend." Refinement COWYS2 without him it's the hardest thing I've had to do, "said Smokeasac. "Sometimes I did not want to finish it, some days it was too hard to hear his voice and not have him right by my side, but when I came out of my head, I could feel him there and that and his incredible fans are what helped me overcome it."
Lil Peep died of a drug overdose in November at 21 years of age. Since his death, posthumous songs have been released such as the controversial "Falling Down" with XXX Temptation, but they do not seem to have made the list of songs from their next album.
