Zoë Ferguson Vulnerably Reveals She’s Afraid to “Die Alone”

Buzzing Portland-based pop artist-to-watch Zoë Ferguson has recently released her relatable new single, “Die Alone”, via RockDafuqOut Records.

Since the release of her debut EP, Probably About You, in September of 2021, Ferguson has amassed quite a fanbase, and rightfully so.

At first listen the track is a catchy upbeat tune, but this does not mean Ferguson shies away from emotional and raw lyrics. She captures the struggle of needing people in moments of instability, reminding us that it’s okay that life isn’t supposed to be easy. She is vulnerable in revealing her fears:

“But I think I’m gonna die alone

Someone call my mom I need her on the phone

Cause I’ve hated every boy I’ve ever known

So, I’m pretty sure I’m gonna die all alone 

A little worried I’ll be by myself 

Cause I don’t think I really like no one else

Should probably get used to being on my own

So that I’m prepared for when I die all alone” 

Her silky voice is full of emotion.


"‘Die Alone’ is about something I've been through."

About the single she says, “I wrote ‘Die Alone’ after I had gotten out of a long relationship. I felt like I didn’t have very many people around and that I would never be in another relationship again. It was a hard time for me, but writing this song really helped me cope with the situation. I hope when people listen, they feel less alone and that they can relate. For me, ‘Die Alone’ feels authentic since it is about something I’ve been through and came from emotions I’ve felt personally. I love writing music that people can connect with and makes them think, ‘Wow, this is exactly what I’m going through at this moment.’”
