19 Lyrics From Joshua Bassett's Sad Songs in a Hotel Room to Use as Instagram Captions

Joshua Bassett'Sad Songs in a Hotel Room is one of our favorite EPs of all of 2022, and it only takes a quick dive into its six vulnerable tracks to see why.

The singer-songwriter and actor's new collection of songs feels rawly autobiographical, giving glimpses into his recent life, balancing his personal life and career while reckoning with being in the public eye as part of other artists' narratives. He addresses all of that, and more, in the stunning details of the EP, brought to life with his lyrically poetic touch. We couldn't be more excited that his debut album is also in the works, but in the meantime, here are our favorite lyrics from the EP to use as your next Instagram caption.
