‘Ready To Be Loved’ fully displays how St. Lundi’s compelling blend of classic pop songcraft and heart-on-sleeve candour is making a huge connection with people who relate to the universal experiences that he explores. Already a live favourite, the up-tempo, instantly catchy song is about taking a romantic leap of faith and fully committing to a loved one. From the emotive opening line, “Laying out on the ground with the waves rolling in, we’re counting the stars and the lines on our skin,” it shows the strength of St. Lundi’s lyrics and melodic, soulful vocals. The track then builds into a huge chorus set for arenas.
St. Lundi explains, “I wrote Ready To Be Loved about the experience of allowing myself to be loved for the first time. Whilst writing the song with my relationship in mind I realised that I had felt this way once before when I stepped out onto a stage for the first time at the age of 20, after being too afraid to sing in front of others for years before. The song and video are really about being the truest version of yourself and letting people love you for it. We thought a nice way of showing that would be through someone that has lost touch with their passion whilst growing up but then rediscovers it and starts to feel like themselves again.”
