Duncan’s new single is a contemporary indie-pop track that talks about all the emotions people feels when they go back thinking of their past relationships. Duncan himself gives the story behind his new track as a comment under the official video:
“Someone Else’ is about the feeling you can get when you’re all by yourself and your head starts spinning and replaying memories of a previous relationship. The emotional roller coaster of constantly thinking of that one person you loved so deeply but who you can’t be with anymore.”
“I think it’s a feeling a lot of people go through right now. Where you normally find comfort and distraction in your daily life, these days you are confronted almost every minute with those thoughts: like breaking up with a loved one and going crazy at the thought they’ve maybe already moved on to someone else…”
