"Alone" is a future trap song by Marshmello. It was released via Monstercat on May 13, 2016, and given a music video by Monstercat on July 2, 2016.

History After Release[]

Alone's music video is currently the most viewed upload on the Monstercat Uncaged YouTube channel, having over 163 million views as of September 2020, surpassing classics such as Disconnected, Surface, and even Flight (which was Monstercat's most viewed song). It is currently the second most viewed video across all three Monstercat channels, having been surpassed by Crab Rave in October 2021. The video was also the most liked video on any Monstercat's YouTube channels, until 2019 when Crab Rave surpassed it. The upload of the music video on Marshmello's personal YouTube channel is more popular, having reached more than 1 billion views near the end of 2018. Due to Marshmello's mainstream status, this song has introduced a fair amount of listeners around the world to Monstercat, a big help for the label.

In June 2016, it was announced that there would be a remix contest for Alone, and that the winner would have their remix released by Monstercat.

On July 8th, it was announced that future house duo MRVLZ had won the contest. The remix package, featuring Slushii, Getter, Streex, MRVLZ, Diskord, and LUCA LUSH, was released on August 25, 2016.

Background[]

The song was premiered during Episode 105 of the Monstercat Podcast on May 10, 2016, and released the following Friday.

I'm so alone
Nothing feels like home
I'm so alone
Tryna find my way back home to you
I'm so alone
Nothing feels like home
I'm so alone
Tryna find my way back home to you
 
I'm so alone
Nothing feels like home
I'm so alone
Tryna find my way back home to you
I'm so alone
Nothing feels like home
I'm so alone
Tryna find my way back home to you
