Set for release on 22nd April on Secretly Canadian, Hatchie has announced her new album ‘Giving The World Away’.
“There’s more to me than just writing songs about being in love or being heartbroken — there’s a bigger picture than that,” she explains. “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.”
Sharing new song ‘Quicksand’ today, she adds, “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.”
