Don't Lonely Me is Berlin-based Heidi Mortenson's second album on Wired Records featuring 10 new songs and a Ben Adorable remix of "I Just Know." "What you search for in other people is to be found in oneself..." says Heidi in relation to her new album whose title is open to translation. In the year of making this album Heidi has been commuting back and forth between the Danish Music Academy and her home in Berlin resulting in a kind of double life and mobile studio working process. While at the same time she's been touring, producing other bands, releasing a compilation of 14 artists (The Wired Ones). To reflect her life's contradictions and variances, Don't Lonely Me unites extremes and balances opposites. The record spans from dance-y electronics to nerdy R&B over new sound experiments and seriousness vs. self-irony, all in a twisted pop production. "Tiger" floats on a bossanova rhythm box with sounds of a growling tiger, meows and even an elephant's toot. "Music" is an ode to sameness and a modest disbelief in human marriage, soundwise reflecting overproduced pop and with a digital taste of the '80s, featuring guest vocals by Monotekktoni. "Coincidence" is fairly dance-y and deals with spontaneous decisions. "Hard To Say" features a double bass and various trumpets, and "Girl Since I Met You" dares you to believe that you can overcome any previous love. Mortenson's alter ego The Nosnetboy plays drums on "Hurt Machine," and "Sphere" features contributions from Kevin Blechdom.
