Alex Lahey has released a new single.

They Wouldn't Let Me In will appear on her new album, 'The Answer Is Always Yes', which is set to arrive on May 19. The Australian singer-songwriter said:

"After watching the brilliant tv series Heartstopper, I spent a lot of time thinking about my own experiences growing up as a queer teenager. Although I was extremely lucky that the majority of my experience was filled with joy, acceptance and love, it wasn’t always smooth sailing. This song is inspired by those tougher moments - not being allowed to attend my high school girlfriend’s school formal, being excluded from conventional romantic rites of passage, moments of isolation and feeling like I couldn’t relate to anyone around me. 'They Wouldn't Let Me In' is by far the most direct song I've ever written about this time."

The track, which finds her moving away from her poppier side and leaning more into post-punk, follows previous cuts Good TimeShit Talkin' and Congratulations. Head below to watch its Claire Giuffe-directed video.

An Evening with Alex Lahey will take over The Slaughtered Lamb in London on May 4, following which Lahey will appear as a special guest to Vacations at their Manchester and Leeds shows. Tickets go on sale at 10am on April 3.
