Richmond, VA-based artist Natalie Prass is back with her third single, “Lost,” set to appear on sophomore LP The Future and the Past, out June 1. “Lost” shows off Natalie Prass’ jazz and pop vocal prowess, from breathy, staccato chops in the verses, to the full and sweeping chorus. The piano ballad comes off melancholic, the perfect backing track for Prass’ narrative. Speaking on the track, Prass says:

“’Lost’ is about putting your foot down in a relationship when enough is enough,” says Natalie, “It’s the journey of getting engulfed in another person’s energy, good and bad, and ultimately understanding the other person is out to hurt you and not there to love you back.”

Before “Lost,” Prass released lead single “Short Court Style,” a celebratory, funky track detailing the highs of figuring out troubles in a relationship. For a glimpse into the recording process for the album and a deep dive into the track “Short Court Style,” check out Prass’ appearance on the podcast Song Exploder. Plus, check out her recent TV-debut performance of the song on Conan to get a feel for her live set.

“The Future and the Past” drops on June 1, and Johnny Brenda’s is lucky enough to host Natalie Prass the following night in celebration of the release. Head over to the Concert Calendar for information and tickets to the June 2 show, and stream “Lost” below.
