Charlotte Cardin Finally Announces Her First Album After Many Years Waiting
Globally-acclaimed singer/songwriter Charlotte Cardin has announced her highly anticipated debut full-length album Phoenix, arriving April 9th via Cult Nation. The 13-track collection features the emotional new track “Meaningless,” arriving today alongside a captivating Norman Wong-directed (Drake, Halsey) video companion (watch here). Phoenix also features stand-out singles “Passive Aggressive” and “Daddy,” both of which marked the first music in nearly two years from the Montreal-based artist.
“I have always been torn between my true desires and what I chose to present to the world. This conflict of will has gotten me to feel very empty at a young age and is still something I struggle with. Making this album took two years, because I started the writing process trying to keep control over what I wanted to show. It eventually became obvious, though, that I needed to embrace accessing those true impulses for my music (and my life) to make any sense whatsoever. The more I realized certain things about myself in the process, the angrier I got for not understanding them earlier. This conflicting loop of shame versus growth gave birth to Phoenix. This was an elemental liberation for me. And if others who, like me, are torn between what is expected from them and who they really are, experience a part of this liberation through my songs, this album will have served its purpose.”
