Alison Wonderland has released her new album, Loner today. Coinciding with tonight’s 9:00 PM PT album drop, Alison is livestreaming a DJ set featuring songs from Loner. Tune in now at https://AlisonWonderland.lnk.to/Livestream.
“My life was going a certain way before something pulled everything out from under me,” Alison Wonderland said of the new album, “I felt like I had hit my rock bottom.”
Throughout her career, Alison has been a courageous advocate for mental health discussions and honest about her own struggles with depression. Staying true to her message with Loner, she writes with a captivating new assuredness in the light that comes after the storm.
“It’s the most positive, hopeful album I have ever written,” she says. “It acknowledges the darkness but creates its own euphoria through it.”
That sense of triumph and euphoria shines brightly in the official video for “Something Real,” which Alison shared today. Working with a 3-D scan of Alison, director Tyler Lampe (who has created stunning visuals for her projects and live shows over the past year), immerses her in a vibrant, surreal world. As she journeys from total darkness to sunshine to sunset, Alison travels through trippy portals that encompass and transcend her previous realities and experiences the sense of weightless the song describes. Watch the video now below.
