In the age of coronavirus, everyone is experiencing some level of loneliness. But Germany-based singer Finn Ronsdorf wants to point out that, even when you’re in a relationship under normal circumstances, loneliness is still there.
On Tuesday (April 7), Ronsdorf unveiled the video for his new single “Blue,” a tender, heartbreaking look at the existential meaning behind love. Throughout the song, the singer establishes how much he loves his significant other, while also making clear that “blue” feeling’s presence. “In the morning, in the evening/ When we both become so blue,” he sings. “In the morning/ In the evening/ I want to lay right next to you.”
The video doesn’t feature that lover, but rather sees Ronsdorf alone in his home, dealing with solitude on his own terms. “And the blue of both of our eyes/ Tell the truth,” he sings. “Because they knew/ That you and I would be so f—ed.”
In a statement to Billboard, Ronsdorf explained that the track helped him express something existential about the nature of love. “This dependency is not only characteristic for our relationship to one another, but it’s how we bear relation to everything,” he says. “Especially in these quarantine times, it becomes so obvious that we use every little thing as a tool for self-escape: work, series, art, movies, music, books, food, and if we can’t find anything, we tell our minds to do so … and it finds a lot.”
