“‘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.” - Charlotte Sands
On her first worldwide headline tour, Charlotte goes on to say, “I am so excited to be announcing my very first worldwide headline tour and cannot wait to spend so much of next year with so many amazing people all over the world. I couldn’t be more proud of our team for being able to make this happen, especially as an independent artist in such a challenging industry with so many consistent obstacles. I’m confident that this tour and these shows are going to be unforgettable and are just the very beginning.I’m so grateful for everyone who is coming along for the ride.”
In the years leading up to her debut album can we start over?, Charlotte has been prolific - constantly releasing music, charting at Top 40 radio for over 15 weeks, nominations for Breakthrough Artist at A2IM’s Libera Awards, taking home an award at London’s Heavy Music Awards, touring with legendary acts - all while remaining fiercely independent. She loves the freedom that being a fully independent artist grants you, making music on her own terms and releasing each song into the world when it feels right. Her debut album is the culmination of a lifelong dream, a project she waited to undertake until it aligned perfectly with her artistic vision.
“The inspiration behind the title can we start over? came while writing a song for the album about the idea of restarting a relationship, and the idea of beginning again or reintroducing yourself to someone,” Charlotte says. “I’ve changed so much over the last few years personally and in my career and I love the concept of starting over as who I am now with the information and knowledge I've gained. It’s not about forgetting the past or regretting our choices but more so letting go of the previous version of ourselves and meeting each other where we are at this moment in the phases that we’re currently in. I think this album for me represents exactly that, standing firmly where I am as the person I am today.”
As she stands on the precipice of her debut album's release, Charlotte is filled with anticipation. “I hope this album conveys strength, confidence, and power within vulnerability,” she says. “It feels like holding a mirror to myself and reflects exactly how I feel right now in this phase of my life. I feel more secure in who I am as a person and as an artist than I’ve ever been.”
