After sharing the poignant ‘Please Don’t Be‘ last month, his debut release for his new label home Nettwerk, rising Stockholm based musician Hazlett has today released another stunning single, ‘Even If It’s Lonely’.
It is a track that wraps us in a comforting blanket of gorgeous guitar strumming and piano sounds. ‘Even If It’s Lonely’ is an ode to platonic love, or as Hazlett calls it “warm love”. He elaborates further on this: “Not the kind with fireworks or the one bestselling novels are written about, but the kind you have with your closest friends. The kind that often guys don’t give to each other. Drifting along to the undertone of how much I miss that feeling from moving around so much.”

Hazlett’s brand of ballroom folk and vast nostalgia will fill your heart but let you cry. Born in Australia, bloomed in Sweden, this modern-day nomad has earned a place in punters’ hearts with his live appearances and fondness for intriguing stories. From his stunning 2017 debut EP Honey, Where Is My Home, to the dream-induced follow-up Thundering Hopes, Hazlett has an affinity for dancing the line of “my life is a mess” to “everything happens for a reason” and making you feel a part of it all. This has led to him being featured in key tastemaker press such as NME, Clash, The Line of Best Fit, Atwood, Music Feeds, to name just a few. With the rising musician currently working on more brand new material for his debut Nettwerk release, Hazlett is weaving his way to something bigger.

After ghostwriting and playing in various rhythm sections for most of his formative years, the shy guy from Brisbane found a creative home in the farthest of places, Sweden. Hazlett packed up his things and now resides in Stockholm, where his solo project was founded with the help of a close friend and producer, Freddy Alexander—writing with his gut and heart like a troubadour of old and combining it with the modern sonic landscape that dances in his head things are blooming in his new found home in the Northern Hemisphere. Hazlett has released two well-received EPs, toured across Europe, Australia, and grew a close-knit family of people he trusts in his adopted home. “As much as Hazlett is me, I think anything good in life is better when you let people in.” With that team spirit in mind, they all decided at the start of the pandemic in 2020 to pause everything, bunker down, and work on Hazlett’s first full-length album, which is set for release on new label home Nettwerk.
