Speaking to Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp about her 17th single as a lead artist, 'How To Be Lonely', Rita said "Well, it just naturally happened.

"This was actually really easy, because - obviously the industry's quite small - we see each other at events, and I was just like 'I love your songs; I love what you're doing."

According to the 'Ritual' singer, after praising Lewis Capaldi, the pair went out together for a few drinks and become friends before Lewis sent her the song, saying it suited her.

Rita Ora was eager to record the single as she claimed "it really hits exactly what [she's] going through".
