New Single ‘Where’s My Tribe’
One voice. One guitar. Recorded by the artist alone in her South London flat – with no edits, no autotune and mostly in one take – ‘Where’s My Tribe’ is the first single to be released from Charlene Soraia’s raw and simple album, due for release January 2019.
Listen Here: ‘Where’s My Tribe’
‘Where’s My Tribe’ lays bare the loneliness, that lurks at the empty heart of our super-connected world, chasing friends and dragons – real and illusory – down the virtual rabbit hole.
Speaking about the track, Charlene said “’Where’s My Tribe’ is about feeling separate to the world and continuously chasing this impossible dream of feeling like I belong. This concept runs throughout the album and my life, whether it’s in relation to people, places or things. Other daydreamers, deep thinkers and loners will know this separate reality; it’s actually where I create most of my art. The chorus reflects on losing oneself to the proverbial rabbit holes and other fantastical avoidance tendencies. There’s also a secret lyric line I will only ever sing live- it was far too strange to commit to the record, but I’ve really come to love it and understand it since! Anyways, high five if you’ve heard it- I love a bit of artistic mystery…!”
As demonstrated by her accidental worldwide hit ‘Wherever You Will Go’, Charlene Soraia is possessed of a voice that can melt hearts. ‘Where’s My Tribe’ serves as a powerful reminder that she is also a guitarist of virtuosic skill and songwriter of rare talent. Universal, yet intensely personal, this is a record of our time that will resonate with the lonely soul inside us all.
In 2011 Charlene signed to UK indie label Peacefrog and recorded ‘Moonchild’, a diverse collection of songs that revealed an idiosyncratic songwriting and performing talent. Her cover of The Calling’s ‘Wherever You Will Go’ for a TV advert, shot to No.3 in the charts and – with over 60 million Spotify hits and counting, the track continues to capture hearts around the world. ‘Where’s My Tribe’ sees Charlene return to her roots – playing guitar and singing selfpenned songs. Unadorned, unmediated, alone. Straight from the heart.
Charlene Soraia’s album is penned for release January 25th, 2018 via Peacefrog Records.
