Featuring Welsh musician Novo Amor – who appears on several collabs from her (spoiler alert: very good indeed) forthcoming debut album ‘Bullseye’, Charli explains: “I’d been listening to Novo Amor for a while and was a huge fan when he reached out over Instagram back in 2019. I was spending some time in London shooting a video and he invited me out to his home studio in Wales to work on some music. Ali is ridiculously talented and we had a lot of fun creating this song.
“We spent the week making ‘Seventeen Again’ and exploring Cardiff. I remember feeling the way that I did when I left home for the first time at seventeen and moved to Nashville, and that was the inspiration behind the song. It’s definitely not in my nature to stay in one place for too long and I find myself fantasizing about moving away far too often. The song follows my familiar thought process of walking around a foreign city imagining what it would be like to never go home.”
Sadly, this confirms the song isn’t inspired by Zac Efron’s seminal 2009 film, 17 Again. Pity.
‘Bullseye’ is set for release on 16th July. You can check out ‘Seventeen Again (feat. Novo Amor), below.
