Alternative rock unit Teach Me Human releases their new single “Lonely Night”, which premiere with Pure Grain Audio. The single was recorded at Vudu Studios in Port Jefferson, NY, and co-produced by Frank Mitaritonna (The Dear Hunter, O’Brother, Glassjaw). Bringing in elements of alternative and indie rock, “Lonely Night” is a slow tempo track with honest songwriting.
The single was originally written in 2018 when singer-songwriter of Teach Me Human, Brian Cotter, was deployed in Iraq. “Lonely Night” lyrically encapsulates the message of letting go and finding the bigger picture in moments of loneliness, in times of darkness.
Listen to the single:
Says Cotter, “I had the music and melody for “Lonely Night” for about two weeks in Iraq. I would mess around with lyrics, sometimes very funny ones. But one night I couldn’t sleep. Although I was surrounded by people I was deployed with I felt so alone. I was sitting outside chain-smoking cigarettes looking at the sky when I saw a shooting star. Within minutes, lyrics for the entire song flooded my brain and the song was complete.”
“Lonely Night” is the second single for Teach Me Human for 2019. In February they released their single “Tell Me That You Love Me”, an emotive indie-rock record that came to fruition, like many of their singles, when Cotter was on air force deployment in 2018. The single premiered exclusively with GroundSounds, who proclaimed the single as having an “energetic urgency that pairs perfectly with memorable guitars and huge hooks.”
Currently, Teach Me Human is relishing in the release of “Lonely Night”, which is available on all streaming platforms. The single is their second release of 2019 and will lead to more music before the end of the year, including the music video for “Lonely Night”.

About Teach Me Human:
From small bars across the Eastern half of the United States to notable venues in New York City, like Webster Hall and CBGBs, the members of Teach Me Human have been spreading their music and honing their craft for years. Together, the group incorporates different rock stylings from gritty to pop sensibilities.
Most of Brian’s songs are now written in his head as he flies in the belly of his unit’s C-30 aircraft, to be worked on and fleshed out later if they still remain there at the end of the day. This influence is apparent, with the release of their previous singles: “Rock Me To Sleep” and “No Joy”. Teach Me Human and their songwriting offers unique metaphorical perspectives that look at life without the typical musical clichés.
