Toronto-based singer-songwriter Charlotte Day Wilson has returned with two new singles: “Summertime” and “Take Care of You” featuring Syd. This is the first release since she offered her “Mountains” single last year and Stone Woman album in 2018.

“‘Take Care of You’ was one of those songs that came really naturally and quickly, the lyrics were impromptu and the music was simple. I just wanted to write the sort of lesbian love song that I would want to listen to,” Charlotte detailed in a recent press statement. “Syd was the best possible addition, we both felt it was a song that needed to be heard. I wrote ‘Summertime’ at my cottage alone in the woods, I was just reflecting on some unrequited emotions that always seem to come back in the summer.”

“Take Care of You” is a soulful love ballad but also features slurred, almost chopped and screwed background vocals somewhat reminiscent of James Blake‘s approach. Charlotte expertly pulls inspirations from jazz, R&B and soul and what results is an atmosphere that is solely her own. Heavy bass-lines add to the track’s longing. “Summertime” is breezy and upbeat, finding the perfect contrast to the Syd collaboration.

Stay tuned for more from Charlotte in the future. Listen to her new singles below. In more music news, Liv.e joined HYPEBEAST for the new feature “Liv.e’s Soulful Existence Was Freestyled From Solitude” to talk about her new album Couldn’t Wait to Tell You….
