When an artist gears up to release their latest album, the reception that its lead track receives is very telling of how the upcoming project will land. And, the widely-adored” nature of Charlotte OC’s “Here Comes Another” is proof enough of the success that her newest album will experience. Cut from her sophomore project, Here Comes Trouble, the track offers listeners an introspective journey through one of Charlotte’s darkest moments, filled with hedonism and a lost sense of self, all of which are portrayed in a truly moving manner. And, the only thing that could make the track all the more intimate? In its accompanying music video, a tortured Charlotte contemplates her most inner thoughts and battles personal demons from the confines of her bed, taking us one step further into her past.
And, looking to stand as an embodiment of the whole album, the artist’s fans can expect plenty more soul-baring lyricism on tracks such as “Bad Bitch”, “Blue Boy” and “Where Do We Go”, all of which feature on the new project.
When speaking on the cathartic nature of her new album, Charlotte shares, “in the space of 2 months, everything that had once been, was no longer. My heart had been broken in a way I could never have imagined. This resulted in me partying too much, not sleeping, hardly eating and smoking like a chimney. Self-destruct mode, activated. I felt totally lost in space, and nobody could bring me back to earth. Through these dark times, I was forced to acknowledge things about myself and sometimes, not in the most positive way. This is me self-deprecating, this is me standing up for myself, this is me madly in love, horrifically heartbroken, angry and this is me praying to a god I don’t believe in about a life I couldn’t lead. I had nothing left to lose and I could not have made this album without the love and support I received from my producer, Couros, and the small bunch of co-writers I collaborated with on some of these songs. They picked both me and this album from the depths of darkness and helped me expel the demons into my work.”
