The Word Alive frontman Telle Smith has been venturing into a solo career lately, and he’s now shared a new solo track called ‘Too Hard On Myself’.
This is what Telle had to say of the track.
“I think we all have had that feeling of bring to hard on ourselves. Our minds often gravitate towards self-doubt and doubting others ability to see you for who you really are, underneath the baggage we all carry.
I posted a tweet in September that said “why do sad songs make me so happy?” and I quickly realized so many of you felt the same. So I went into the studio and wrote this song last month with my boy Matt Keller. I said “I have the chorus written already and I want a sad progression that feels hopeful”. He played around on the piano until we found the perfect progression and the song came to life so quickly. It felt like magic.
I love the lyrics, I love the beat and I think this is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. It is a direct insight into how I have felt so many times in my life, so if it connects with you I hope you’ll share it with the world.”

More details surrounding his yet-to-be-announced debut solo album will be confirmed as they develop.
