One month after unveiling a single titled “Closer to You,” Clairo is sharing another new track off her forthcoming debut studio album. For her latest single, the fast-rising singer-songwriter is serving up an Immunity cut known as “Sofia.”
“I don’t feel like I’m ever going to feel like someone who’s super unrelatable or anyone that’s trying to be untouchable,” Clairo previously shared with us during a 2018 interview. “I like people, I love being around people and experiencing what they are experiencing and being with them. I like being just a person that also makes art and shares it with other people. I don’t ever see myself becoming this image that no one can ever achieve besides me. I think I’m a version of a lot of different people that achieve a lot of different things. I don’t want to sound generic but there’s a lot of people like me that don’t have this platform. So it’s cool to be able to talk to them and use my platform to bring up whatever else is talking about.”
“I just think an artist doesn’t have to have this crazy image,” Clairo added. “You can still make art that’s great but that doesn’t mean so many things have to come with it. People don’t realize that being able to make a song doesn’t mean that you’re really good at doing makeup or performing or really good at all these other things. They are all separate skills that you learn after or before or other times other than making the art. It’s not to not worry about what I look like ‘cause I want to put the energy into [art]. I like play around with style, that’s my thing, but I don’t really put on makeup or do my hair. That’s something I would learn later on, yes.”
