“THE LONELIEST” was released from Italian rock band Måneskin on the 7th October 2022 through Epic records.
The track sees Måneskin emotionally vulnerable, bearing all pain to their listeners. With “THE LONELIEST”, listeners and fans are seeing the group in a different light, with them moving away from their signature rock and upbeat sound in favour of something more mellow, more melancholy – but still Måneskin at its core.
In a statement to Italian media, the group explained the song’s significance for them and their intention for the track:
“‘THE LONELIEST’ has a strong emotional charge, being a cross between a love letter, a farewell, and a will. That’s what you would say to the people you love when something good ends. They are important lyrics for us: they express a message of universal love.”
The music video for the song was directed by Tommasso Ottomano, and filmed in the Villa Tittoni Traversi in Desio, Italy. Uploaded to Måneskin’s YouTube channel on the 12th October 2022, the video had a total of 15.4 million views as of the 28th November 2022.
The song has Gold certification in Italy.
