The track, which features indie-pop luminary Hannah Georgas, is Born Ruffians’ first time sharing vocals with another artist. “We’ve had other people come and sing on tracks before, but I haven’t ever sung a proper duet with anybody,” says lead singer Luke Lalonde. “Once we finished a demo version of “Waylaid” we knew it should be a duet because of the lyrics. Hannah was at the top of our list because she’s so great, and I’ve got to sing with her a few times – it’s always so effortless and easy, and I think our voices blend really well. It’s about distance in a relationship and the fear of becoming entangled with somebody else – or of that happening to you. It’s a tired of being alone song.”
