The track is lifted from his highly anticipated new album Wild Horse Running, out June 9th via Square Leg Records.

British songwriter Sivu (James Page) has released his fourth single of 2023. The track follows previous album tasters ‘Choral Light,’ ‘Apollo‘ and the album’s title track released back in February. The single is a beautiful, low-key ode to standing up for yourself.

Speaking more on the creation of ‘Overtime Lover’ and its inspiration, Page said:

“‘Overtime Lover’ is the oldest song from the new record and actually took shape just before I went on tour. I then road-tested it extensively whilst on a beautiful tour with Fenne Lily, Paul Thomas Saunders, and Siv Jakobsen. Paul was incredibly complimentary of the track and we always flirted with the idea of collaborating on something as I have always loved his production. Fast forward 3 years, I left the track with Paul and he created a magical landscape for the song to sit in which I adored from the moment I heard it.

The song is based around this idea of how much of ourselves we have to give to someone else when you are in a relationship – and sometimes you crave just to keep a little bit of yourself just for you. It’s lyrically quite blunt but this was an important process for my head and was imperative I got it out. I had no aspirations lyrically to dress it up, and probably from the whole album this song cuts the deepest.”

Sivu’s third album Wild Horse Running is out June 9th via Square Leg Records. New single ‘Overtime Lover’ is out now.
