If you desperately need something to help cure those mid-week blues, look no further than Fake Laugh's infectious single 'Near You'. The track is set to appear on his forthcoming album Dining Alone, due for release on March 13th. Also featuring on the album will be past singles 'If You Don't Wanna Know' and 'Novelty Song'.

His newest single was inspired by a crush, "This is quite an old song, which I started writing a few years ago when I had a dizzying crush on someone that I hadn’t known for very long. It’s about the feeling of just not knowing what to do with yourself in the company of that person, and in the quest for their affection, acting like an absolute fool."

The song originally came to life a few years ago, but he revisited it to experiment with the instrumentation — resulting in a tune that' you'll have glued inside your head for hours on end.
