Citizen Debut “If You’re Lonely” At ‘Youth’ 10-Year Anniversary Tour

Citizen Spring 2023

Citizen has embarked on the Decade Of Youth tour to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their debut album Youth, which kicked off last night at a sold-out show in New York City. While the group ran through the 10-track album, they surprised fans during their 4-track encore with a new, unreleased single titled “If You’re Lonely.” 

“If You’re Lonely” marks a notable departure from their previous work, showcasing a fresh and vibrant sound that radiates with an infectious upbeat tonality. The song introduces listeners to a fusion of funky leading percussion, dance-worthy guitars, and sunny synths, creating an irresistibly catchy and uplifting composition.

From the very first guitar lines, “If You’re Lonely” establishes a lively and energetic atmosphere, inviting listeners to immerse themselves in its pop-infused charm. The leading lyric, “Call me if you’re lonely,” sets the stage for the song’s theme, offering a comforting hand to those who may be experiencing moments of isolation or emotional turmoil.

Complemented by dance-worthy guitars that add a lively groove to the mix, the instrumentation takes on a dynamic and vibrant quality, propelling the song forward with undeniable momentum.
