Lauren Sanderson has been making waves in the music for many years now, releasing EP’s and singles along the way, before ringing in 2020 with her debut album, Midwest Kids Can Make It Big.

Now, Sanderson has returned with a brand new single called “Frustrated.” While it will officially hit all DSP’s tomorrow, Sanderson teamed up with Ones to Watch today to exclusively share the single ahead of it’s release. “Frustrated” is new territory in ways for Sanderson, welcoming synth-pop/rock vibes to her slick R&B sound.

“So many times, I’ve felt myself shutting down when I didn’t want to. Anxiety can dig deep like that,” shares Sanderson on the meaning behind the all-to-relatable lyrics. “That fear of being vulnerable can convince you your feelings are ‘too much’ or you need to be ‘less’ to be wanted. But you can’t believe those thoughts.”

Fans of Sanderson can pre-save the single here, and listen to a stream below.
