If 2023 has been great to Charlotte Sands (and it has: winning the Heavy Music Award for Best Breakthrough Album, powering into arenas across the UK and Europe as special guest to 5 Seconds of Summer, and writing and recording her debut album), 2024 looks set to be bigger still. That eagerly anticipated album, ‘can we start over?’, will finally be unleashed on January 24th and the following months will see Charlotte taking those songs to the world at large, including her first set at the UK’s renowned Downloadfestival. In the meantime, this year brings one final highlight for Charlotte as she shares the new single ‘pity’. Listen HERE.
The most vitriolic of Charlotte’s recent singles, ‘pity’ plays out raw, punchy and direct – a barbed wire guitar riff snaking around her searing, full-throttle vocal attack as the track’s sonic dynamics leap from threatening verses to a visceral shout along hook. As with the best of Charlotte’s discography, ‘pity’ channels vulnerable emotions into a blood-letting, cathartic release in a way that will connect with her ever-growing following.
Charlotte says, “‘pity’ is a song about meeting ‘the perfect person’ and wishing you could be more like them. It’s about the feeling of jealousy and comparing yourself but also about the experience of being captivated by someone else’s existence. Making this song was such a fun experience, I wanted the production to feel like a high energy show opener while the melody stayed simple and repetitive so everyone could scream the words together when we finally get to perform it live.”
‘pity’ joins ‘use me’ and ‘get over it’ in generating pre-release hype for the ‘can we start over?’ album. Those three tracks sprawl across the sonic spectrum of the record’s varying moods, moving confidently from dark pop atmospherics to angsty, ‘90s-style alt-rock, and classic singer-songwriter vibes which reveal her deep-seated vulnerabilities. As an album which holds a mirror up to who Charlotte is right now, it feels right that it seemed to dictate its own direction. It took shape last May when Charlottearrived in Los Angeles for what was intended to be a brief few sessions with Jutes, Alex Nice and Keith ‘Ten4’ Sorrells. But the songs took shape not only quickly but at a career-high standard with that team writing all three of the album’s singles so far, providing Charlotte with the platform to complete the biggest statement of her career to date.
‘can we start again?’ is available to pre-order or pre-save HERE. Charlotte’sofficial store offers two physical products: a blue marble vinyl and a CD, both of which are signed.
