Last Week, Charlotte Cornfield shared the new video for “June” from her recently released LP, The Shape Of Your Name. Directed by Kevin Drew and filmed by Joe Cornfield, the video was shot in the warehouse at Toronto’s Burdock where a piano had to be forklifted into the space. Charlotte tells NOW Magazine that the video, though filmed in one shot, needed several takes to work. "As soon as the camera went around the piano, Kevin would yell 'alright everyone, disappear' and then they'd have to hurry up the stairs to the mezzanine...And two people had to stay down to throw the books on the floor."

Out now via Outside Music’s new imprint Next Door Records, The Shape Of Your Name has a more refined studio sound than her scrappier 2016 release Future Snowbird, and for good reason: it was recorded in 5 different sessions over the course of 3 years. The songs are her strongest and most striking to date - contemplative and contemporary, funny and heart-wrenching - and they’ve got that stuck-in-your-head-for-days quality that Cornfield is known for. The Shape Of Your Name features a star-studded cast of collaborators including (but not limited to) Grammy-winning engineer Shawn Everett, Broken Social Scene members Brendan Canning, Kevin Drew, and Charles Spearin, and Montreal songwriter Leif Vollebekk.

“My initial intention wasn’t to make a record at all,” Charlotte muses. “The whole thing kind of happened by accident. I went to The Banff Centre to do a residency and came out with these recordings that I knew I wanted to use for something but wasn’t sure what.” She brought the unfinished songs to her former roommate Nigel Ward in Montreal. “He fell into the producer role seamlessly. We took it slow and just tried things for a while until the vision settled in. There was no rush. It was freeing, and it gave the songs a lot of breathing room to develop.”

For the past four years Cornfield has been booking and managing Burdock Music Hall, a small venue in the west end of Toronto. The job has offered her stability and a strong sense of place in Toronto’s bursting-at-the-gills music community. She’s also an in-demand drummer and side musician, and has worked closely with Tim Darcy of Ought, Molly Burch, Adrian Underhill, and members of Lake Street Dive. She has toured extensively in North America and Europe and has supported a huge range of artists including Broken Social Scene, Anais Mitchell, Daniel Romano, and Sam Amidon.

In a few short weeks, Charlotte Cornfield will release her newest LP, The Shape Of Your Name, via Outside Music’s new imprint Next Door Records. Today, the celebrated songwriter is sharing the new video for the album’s third single “Silver Civic”, a song she performed earlier live on CBC’s q. Earmilk says of the song, “After one run through...I’m thinking back on past memories of every relationship I’ve been in. After two listens, I’m in tears.”

On “Silver Civic”, Charlotte notes: “this is something I think we have all experienced at some point, that association of an inanimate object with somebody or something, that wave of emotion it brings. And cars, they’re just everywhere. Right after I wrote this song I recorded what I thought was going to be a demo version of this song with my friend Matthew Bailey. And then I tried recording it a bunch more times with different arrangements but that first recording just has the emotion and the rawness. Leif Vollebekk added a piano part and then it just felt finished.”

The video, directed by Charlotte’s brother Joe Cornfield, was shot on Wicklow Beach in Southern Ontario. “I wanted the video to be simple and minimal, to really put the focus on the song,” she says.

Beginning on April 19, Cornfield will embark on a run on North American tour dates supporting Tim Baker (Hey Rosetta!). Full tour dates can be found below.

Today, celebrated Toronto songwriter Charlotte Cornfield reveals “Storm Clouds”, the track that was the catalyst for everything else on her upcoming LP, The Shape Of Your Name. “It was the first thing I recorded in Banff, a few days after arriving,” says Cornfield. “I had been carrying around the ‘storm clouds, elation, desire, mania, darkness’ refrain for a long time – it’s a personal meditation. But I have this habit of not finishing songs until I have to, so it took being in the studio to pull it all together. I couldn’t figure out how to end it and then Brendan Canning suggested bringing back the refrain and that just felt right.”

The track features Cornfield on drums and guitar, Charles Spearin on bass and horns, and Kevin Drew on backing vocals. "He lives those words as much as I do," says Cornfield. “Storm Clouds” is available on all streaming platforms February 22.
