I am, to embassy of music in Berlin

You released your new single ‘Like I Don’t Know You’, tell us more about the single. 
Like I don’t know you describes a tangled relationship where you no longer know who the person is who you’re with. Things and feelings have changed as did they and it ultimately has a huge impact on the dying relationship.
