Lonely Together is about Rita’s struggle with a collapsed relationship her drunk mind wants her to revive, although she knows there won’t be romantic love anymore. However, remaining a friendship with that person would make her feel lonely, so she attempts a one night stand.
The song features British singer-songwriter Rita Ora and is part of Avicii’s comeback EP Avici.
On June 28, 2017, Rita and songwriter Ali Tamposi performed an acoustic version of the song at an intimate gig hosted by NOTION Magazine. There were no hints given that the song was a collaboration between her and Avicii.
