Following the success of ‘LastSong’, the standout talent that is Tamzene is back with another heart-stopping moment in newest single ‘ You’re With Somebody Now’. It speaks of heartbreak, nostalgia and regret, with the practical outlook that the past is the past and now things must change. This soulful pop track is accompanied by a captivatingly choreography music video, directed by fellow Highlander Archie Short. Throughout the song, Tamzene’s vocal soars with all the authentic passion of lost
love, over a contemporary pop production that shows just how far and fast this songwriter has come from her days busking on the streets of Inverness.
“You’re With Somebody Now came from a period where I was looking to the past for answers, and I found them. Lewis Gardiner (producer and co-writer) has a talent for tapping into truth. So this song comes from an honest place of pain and realisation.” – Tamzene
