Charlotte’s new album is available to pre-order as strictly limited edition frosted white vinyl from PledgeMusic as of today (Wednesday March 8th).
Containing pulsating, futuristic new single A Sign, True Love is 10 tracks of cinematic melancholic pop, influenced in equal parts by sci-fi and heartbreak, & containing co-writes with Michael Lovett from NZCA Lines and guest vocal appearance from Scritti Politti frontman, Green Gartside.
As Charlotte herself says True Love “is greatly influenced by my love of science fiction realism. It’s a break up record and my character, Traveller, is on a different planet looking for True Love”.
“True love is as much about darkness and heartbreak as light and redemption. It’s an unpredictable and confusing landscape to walk through. Another world, another planet. And to me, that’s how this record sounds. A melancholy, cinematic, personal reflection on love and loneliness.
“After my 3rd solo record, ‘New Worlds’, I found myself turning away from the guitar and more towards synth-infused music. I released an EP under the name Sylver Tongue, a post-apocalyptic, Mad Max inspired character. That character helped me break out of a creative standstill – but paradoxically, the songs I was writing were very personal and emotional, with lyrics that were more honest and direct.
