SMWN (pronounced ‘someone’) is the new creative project of viral artist, Prince Fox (known for working alongside household names like Hailee Steinfeld, Bella Thorne, Quinn XCII, YG, Ella Vos). Not too long ago, he released a heartfelt indie-pop tune, entitled, “Somebody Else.”
SMWN – “Somebody Else” single
“I just wanted to talk about my experience of becoming someone else in Los Angeles and becoming a product of my surroundings… for better or worse. It felt like a fitting way to start the project that conceptually has been about becoming someone else through my shortcomings, my notions of self-worth (or lack thereof), and my desire to be able to do it all over again, with the knowledge that I have now.” – SMWN explained
‘Somebody Else’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and an honest confession. The likable tune possesses vibey instrumentation flavored with electronic and indie-pop elements. Furthermore, “Somebody Else” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from SMWN in the near future.
“Everybody wants to be somebody else sometimes.”
From Rick Rubin tweeting his remix of Florence and the Machine, to being the number one artist on Billboard’s Emerging Artists list, Prince Fox has seen quite a remarkable few years. Now, he’s ready to rebrand and branch out of the ‘dance drops’ he’s known for in his past releases to release music with a message.
The New York-born Sam Lassner first picked up a guitar at the age of seven but quickly gave it up for life on the ice rink.
“It wasn’t until I was 13 that I picked it back up and caught the bug.” – Sam Lassner shared
Lassner went on to study music at NYU. At Lafayette Hall, his Prince Fox project was born in his dorm room. The project opened several doors for Lassner. Also, it led to collaborations with several notable artists that shaped the type of artist he strives to emulate.

SMWN is a culmination of those experiences, lessons, and growth as an artist. Lassner puts his best foot forward with SMWN. Also, the project is teed up to eclipse that of Prince Fox in the years to come.
