(Toronto, ON – April 23, 2021) Sony Music Entertainment Canada Inc. recording artist Laraw (pronounced Lair-ruh) releases her latest single “This Is How I Lost My Friends”, listen HERE.

In a world so connected, “This Is How I Lost My Friends” expresses how disconnected singer-songwriter Laraw became this past year and is deeply apologetic for shutting out those closest to her.  She explains, “Last year was f@*ked. I just stopped talking to everyone because I had nothing left to say. People who’ve known me for a while know that I don’t like going out or hanging out with anyone to begin with but last year was different. I needed someone to ask me how I was doing and no one did – no one could really, we were all going through it”.

Co-written by Laraw and Michael Adubato (Maude Latour, Del Water Gap and Grace VanderWaal) and produced by Adubato as well, “This Is How I Lost My Friends” is an upbeat catchy track that captures her inability to cope with the past year, acknowledging it, and apologizing to her friends the only way she knows how: through music. “I miss my friends and can’t wait for us to be all safe again. Until then, “This Is How I Lost My Friends”. Not because I wanted to but because life happened, anxiety got the best of me and I didn’t feel like asking for help.”
