Alex the Astronaut will be releasing her debut album The Theory of Absolutely Nothing in August. Today she releases the single “Lost.” The lyrics of “Lost” talk about teenage pregnancy is an honest emotional way.
Alex the Astronaut speaks about the song: “Lost” is about trying to find your way and fix everything, and the moment where you’ve exhausted all options and have to accept the fact that there is so much that is completely out of your control: sometimes you will just feel lost. The song is pivoted around a moment of change when someone is walking new ground and they really don’t know what’s to come. For me it’s one of those “one goes out, one comes in” times when you lose what you hoped things would be like but you get to move through a different world that maybe will show you something you didn’t know you would see.”
Alex the Astronaut recently had a GoFundMe Campaign to raise money for PPE for a friend who works as nurse in NYC. The money goes to NYU Langone Hospital. As part of the GoFundMe Alex the Astronaut would shave her head. https://www.gofundme.com/f/masks-for-manhattan
Alex the Astronaut has a song of hope today that mixes clips from other videos. Alex notes: “Right now, like billions of people around the world, I feel like I’ve been put in a blender and shaken up. Sometimes I would like to stop all these very scary things from happening and go back to being in primary school and feeling protected from it. ‘Split the Sky’ is a message of hope that I was trying to get myself to understand that, no matter what happens, there will always be that kid waiting–that the seasons will fall around and you’ll be in the sun again at some point. Watching Harry Potter is good for me and helps me to go back to how I felt back then.” For info visit https://www.alextheastronaut.com
