“DOUBT” SINGLE ARTWORK // DOWNLOAD HIGH-RES
Toronto's Charlotte Day Wilson returned today with "Doubt", her first new single since the release of her acclaimed 2016 debut EP CDW. Zane Lowe gave “Doubt” its radio premiere this morning on Beats1, calling Charlotte a “fantastically brilliant, tasteful artist”. The Fader followed with the track’s online premiere, calling it “...a gorgeous track that instantly finds a camaraderie with the listener in its warm and honest handling of regret.”
“I wrote this song after a period of time where I had been traveling quite a bit for work,” Charlotte told The Fader, “I was reflecting on my relationship and realizing I’d been taking it for granted. This song was me trying to confront the things that I felt were holding me back and making it hard to feel deserving of love.”
Next year brings the promise of more new music from Charlotte, as well as her continued evolution as a transcendent live performer, building on sold out headline appearances from New York to London during the year of touring that followed CDW's release.
"Doubt" catalogues the growth and uncertainty of that period, a stirring demonstration of Charlotte's power and poise and the certainty of her emergence as an essential voice in 2018 and beyond.
