‘Short Ride’ has already received major traction on TikTok with millions of views. The initial idea for the song came when Lewis Fitzgerald was visiting an ill friend in a hospital, where he overheard a conversation between a young woman and her mother, who was suffering from cancer. They were discussing the importance of making the most of life, and Lewis was so moved by it, that the concept “live fast die young” became the focal point of inspiration for the song.
Through candid, heartfelt lyrics that confront the brevity of life and Lewis Fitzgerald’s melodic vocals, the catchy pop-R&B “Short Ride” reflects the singer-songwriter’s ability to convey his immensely personal experiences of heartbreak, regret, loss, and suicidal thoughts through his music. The emotionally charged tune possesses saturated drums and percussion-laden instrumentation flavored with contemporary and alternative pop elements. Furthermore, “Short Ride” is the first release taken from Lewis Fitzgerald’s forthcoming debut EP, due for release in May 2023.
“This song represents some of my childhood and the things I went through. I had suicidal thoughts and attempts when I was younger and it’s kind of like my way of releasing that pain now through this sound, remembering how it was and how I thought at the time, it’s like me saying it to myself.” – Lewis Fitzgerald explained
