Romy Returns With New Single “Always Forever”

Romy Returns With New Single "Always Forever"
Romy Still by Vic Lentaigne

Romy has shared a brand new single “Always Forever”. The song, which was debuted at Mexico City’s Ceremonia Festival and became an instant live favourite during Romy’s recent run of sold-out headline shows, is her first new music since the release of her acclaimed Mid Air debut solo album last year. Built around an interpolation of Donna Lewis’ iconic 1996 hit “I Love You Always Forever” and made with Mid Air co-producer Fred again.., it’s a joyous piece of ecstatic ear worm pop that sees Romy staking an early claim for song of the summer.

For the “Always Forever” video, Romy has teamed up with lauded director and filmmaker Charlotte Wells  for Wells’ first ever music video. The pair’s creative journeys are intertwined: Wells is a devoted fan of Romy’s band, The xx, first seeing them perform live in 2014 as part of the band’s intimate residency at New York’s Park Avenue Armory (shows that were also witnessed by the likes of Jay Z, Beyonce, Madonna, Bjork and Anohni among others). Meanwhile, Romy connected deeply with Wells’ debut feature film After Sun (2022)- widely regarded as one of the best debuts in recent times – as she completed work on Mid Air. The pair struck up a friendship which ultimately led to their first artistic collaboration on “Always Forever”, created with support from Gucci.
