Alone written by s-endz produced by s-endz and simon ‘subs’ duggal chorus vocals by sarah riley mixed, engineered and mastered by simon ‘subs’ duggal at sub dub studios
Alone was written and conceived in May 2008 at my home studio. Lyrically, it’s the story of a troubled relationship. It started with a guitar sample from a pop song, ran through a filter and then I started laying down drums on it. The first version was very basic – just the drums and the sample. I wrote and recorded all three verses and the chorus, and then a few months later, took the multitracks over to simon’s studio. There, we redid the drums from scratch, added piano and guitar parts, and had a girl named sarah, who simon was working with at the time, record the chorus vocal. I then redid my own rap vocals. Over the next 3 years, we worked on-and-off on the song, but it always felt incomplete. Finally, in mid 2011, we changed the bassline, added new synth parts and everything fell into place.
“do you enjoy being alone….. do you want me… yes or no”
