Rue Tiay, an Australian singer residing in Sydney, has just published a new song titled “A Song From the Friend Zone (Sober)”, which explores the heartbreak of looking for love in the modern era of situational relationships and drug and alcohol-fueled sex.

“I wrote this song after coming out of a long term relationship and finding that the dating world is no longer the innocent courtship it once was. I heard all the stories from friends while I was in a relationship, but I didn’t quite understand how dire the state of the dating world was, until I had to experience it first hand”, she said about the new release.

In her formative years, Rue Tiay participated in school jazz combos, bands, and barbershop choirs. The remainder of her free time was spent writing songs and giving solo performances.

Since the age of nine, she has been creating songs, and since the age of eleven, she has been playing the guitar.

She prefers to write on the piano and ukulele in addition to her primary instrument of the guitar, and she draws inspiration from artists like John Mayer, Khalid, and Bon Iver.

Khalid’s debut album American Teen served as a major source of inspiration for “A Song From the Friend Zone (Sober)”, although the song still has a singer-songwriter feel to it.

“Tell me boy, will you ever want me when you’re sober?” is the song’s menacing hook. many single folks who are currently navigating the dating world will recognise this phrase.
