We are usually encouraged to embrace fear but when it is that brought up by loneliness, it becomes quite some challenge. British singer and songwriter Benedict Cork had to contend with this misgiving when he moved away from London to Stockholm, after a separation with his band and management. It is this experience that drove him to compose “Fear Of Lonely”.
Benedict said: “It’s about shaking hands with the loneliness that comes after losing someone in your life. My favourite lyric is ‘I’ve got this fear of lonely, and I blame it on you’ because it encapsulates exactly how I felt in that moment of isolation, in a brand new city with barely anyone around.”
On “Fear Of Lonely”, Benedict lays bare his vocal endowment, delivering a heartfelt song that most listeners will find relatable.
