Today (August 12), Loyal Lobos released her newest single, “Hate My Face.” The song is a declaration of acceptance. The Colombian-born, California-based singer/songwriter comes to the realization that not everyone in life will like you and sometimes you will be portrayed as the villain. In a press release, Lobos says about the song’s content, “I realized the world is full of infinite realities and finally came to peace with being the bad guy in someone else’s story.”
“Hate My Face” is the first original music to be dropped by Loyal Lobos since her debut album “Everlasting” which was executive produced by Teddy Geiger (who has previously worked with Lizzo and Shawn Mendes). The album was released last year to critical acclaim from major publications such as The New Yorker, The Rolling Stones and The New York Times. “Hate My Face” also marks the return of Lobos’ frequent collaborator, the producer Evan Voytas, who also served as a producer on her album. The song mixes genres, borrowing sound from folk, pop, and 90’s dance music, creating the song’s soft-pop sound.
As summer comes to an end, Loyal Lobos’ “Hate My Face” is a satisfying finale for the season. The song is both reflective and finite, a perfect combination for the last days of summer. Listen to “Hate My Face” below.
