Hatchie has shared details of her new album, ‘Giving The World Away’.
Set to arrive on 22nd April via Secretly Canadian, it’s previewed with a new single, ‘Quicksand’.
The song is the second to come from the record, following up on last year’s single ‘This Enchanted.
Hatchie explains: “‘Quicksand’ is about dealing with the realisation that you’ll never be satisfied. I started writing it when I was home between tours in 2019 before finishing it with Joe Agius and Dan Nigro the next year. I was feeling guilty and ungrateful for not being happy about a few different things in my life that were technically going well. I had to work through some tough learned thought processes and emotions that had been working away for years to try to understand how to be happy with my present, and stop fixating on my past and future. The video digs deeper into showing this juxtaposition of such sadness and anger despite being surrounded by glamour and grandeur.”
“There’s more to me than just writing songs about being in love or being heartbroken — there’s a bigger picture than that. This album really just feels like the beginning to me, and scratching the surface – and even though it’s my third release as Hatchie, I feel like I’m rebooting from scratch.”
