Avicii and Rita Ora collaborate on an intoxicating new single and whimsical accompanying music video.
"I can't change you and I won't change I might hate myself tomorrow but I'm on my way tonight. Let's be lonely together," coaxes Rita Ora and Avicii.
Tim Bergling aka Avicii has graced some of the world's largest stages and is even referenced in the Mike Posner song "I Took a Pill in Ibiza." Apparently, Tim is a really cool guy as Posner sings that he took a pill to convince Avicii he was cool; however, Avicii is evidently naturally shy and life on the road was a major transition for him. As he continues to ride his momentum toward stardom, Avicii paired up with Rita Ora bringing us what's bound to be this fall's anthem. Along with their new single "Lonely Together" Canon Blue, Dark0, A Boogie With Da Hoodie, SomeKindaWonderful, The Safes, Sounds of Ceres, and Sisters all released new music recently.
Avicii with Rita Ora | "Lonely Together"
Avicii and Rita Ora are not the first to comment on our generation's tendency to lean away from commitment and relationships. Artists like Lorde, Sam Tsui, and more have all commented on this sensation recently, but I find that "Lonely Together" does this from a totally new perspective that is both optimistic and cynical. While in "Lonely Together" we ultimately accept the fate of letting go of a magical relationship when the night is over, there is tension and resistance in the verses and pre-choruses claiming "I caught the edge of a knife and it hurts just a little. And I know, and I know, and I know, and I know that I can't be your friend." This perfectly captures that dull pain of trying to enjoy something when you know you'll have to let it go so soon. The music video perfectly captures that along with the blissful feeling of being the only two people in the world on nights like that. In the video, a couple frolics through various settings where the world seems to be paused making each other laugh, enjoying themselves, dancing, and more.
Watch "Lonely Together" here.

WATCH: Billie Eilish Declares Your Opinion Of Her "Not My Responsibility" In Powerful New Short Film
The young star bears all in "NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY."
Break out pop star and five time Grammy-award-winner Billie Eilish is sick of your body shaming.
The 18-year-old just dropped a powerful new short film in which she slowly removes her clothes as we hear her voice hypnotically decry the media's obsession with her body. She says, "Some people hate what I wear. Some people praise it. Some people use it to shame others. Some people use it to shame me. But I feel you watching, always, and nothing I do goes unseen. So, whether I feel your stares, your disapproval, or your sigh of relief—if I lived by them, I'd never be able to move. Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet? Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach, my hips?" Meanwhile, she strips to a black bikini in slow motion, eventually sinking into a pool of black viscous liquid and declaring your opinion "not my responsibility."
