“Homesick” is Love Ghost’s 17th single of 2022, but this one in particular will definitely hit home for many listeners. The Mike “Se7en” Summers produced track deals with loneliness, addiction, and mental health struggles, as well as the desire to escape from them all. The song’s lyrical content comes mainly from the experiences of the band’s lead vocalist and guitarist Finnegan Bell.
“I was really sad and depressed when I wrote it,” said Bell. “I’m at war with invisible barriers in my head and as a coping mechanism, I withdraw into my inner nothingness.”
Bell, who has been making music professionally for the last two years, credits both his bandmates and his producer Mike Summers with helping bring his vision to life.
“Mike Summers wrote the instrumentation and really pushed me to come up with a raw and interesting lyrical concept,” Bell explained. “I came in with some lyrics and the other members of the band helped me to realize my full vision lyrically.”
The band plans on continuing their prolific run of releases with two EPs that are scheduled to be released in December and January. They are currently in the process of creating visuals for their upcoming projects and are working on an additional studio album that they hope to release in the early months of 2023.
