Kelsey Lu debuts her cover of 10cc’s classic “I’m Not in Love” today, alongside an Alima Lee-directed video—listen and watch here.
Of the song Lu says, “This is dedicated to the ones who have ever felt misunderstood in the name of Love, in the name of Self. Who Love the Passion, Love the Grace Of Dramatics, Love the obsession of life and want to Kill the Confusion all while finding beauty in the abstract of growth and humor that surrounds the horrors both within and around us daily.”
“I’m Not in Love” follows “Due West” and “Shades of Blue” released last year to great critical acclaim. Pitchfork praises Lu’s latest saying, “‘Due West’ is her most arresting excursion yet.” Kelsey Lu’s debut album is forthcoming this year.
Furthermore, Lu graces the cover of V Magazine’s current issue, shot by Inez & Vinoodh and interviewed by Dev Hynes—read the story here and on newsstands now.

lingering tones and vocal melodies that ascend and dive.”—The New York Times
“Kelsey Lu defies classification. At a time when recording artists stick to the most marketable genre, the singer/songwriter and classically-trained cellist created a new one entirely…Her music is both thrilling and haunting, from the first piercing note of her cello to her angelic vocals, both instruments blending seamlessly to create one cohesive sound.” —Teen Vogue
“It’s Lu’s voice, emotionally generous and brimming with hairpin melodic turns, that remains her most potent instrument as she looks inward for resilience.”—Pitchfork
“That’s the thing about Lu: You can’t look away, and you can’t stop listening.”—Elle
“Lu’s songs have struck a sought-after balance, blending expressive,
ethereal musings with a down-to-earth realness.”—Office Magazinetx3p_pastedGraphic--1.png
