Che Lingo releases single “Out The Blue” and announces new album

Che Lingo has released his new single “Out The Blue” and has shared details of his second album “Coming Up For Air”.

The album follows his critically acclaimed debut ‘The Worst Generation’, and the AIM Award nominated Londoner tackles mental health and heartbreak in its entirety.

“CUFA is a personal and personal view of me and people who sometimes, like me, have trouble seeing themselves,” says Che Lingo, “the CUFA album, in my own way, is telling people that they are. You are alone in these trials.”

In anticipation of his new album, Lingo has released “Out The Blue”, a somber song to help “get out of the cycle of pressures, legacy and personal, that he and so many suffer.”

Speaking about what inspired the song, Lingo spoke of “Times when I felt like I was drowning, fighting things emotionally and mentally that I couldn’t even see that cycle and the cycle to do that again… This is a story about times like that and how I sang and rapped my way through them.” You are not alone. Trust me”.

Director Reece Selvadorai described the “special” experience of working on the video.

“We wanted to physically represent the fight, and let the sound connect with the visual effects, giving the audience a glimpse of Che Lingo,” explains Selvadorai.

It follows Lingo’s previous single, “My Radio”, featuring rock royalty Queen, which racked up over a million streams in two weeks.
