De Nederlandse singer-songwriter Charlotte Wessels (ex Delain) heeft gisteren haar nieuwe studioalbum The Obsession aangekondigd. De plaat, die via Napalm Records uit komt, gemixt is door Guido Aalbers (Muse, Coldplay, The Gathering) en gemasterd door Andy VanDette (Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, VOLA), verschijnt op 20 september en kenmerkt een nieuwe niveau in haar muzikale carrière. 

Tegelijk met de aankondiging van The Obsession, verscheen ook de eerste single The Exorcism waarin haar kwaliteit van songwriting hoorbaar duidelijk wordt en een opwindend voorproefje is van wat men op het album kan verwachten. 

Over The Exorcism zegt Charlotte Wessels: 

 “I’ve been thinking a lot about fears and behaviors I’ve had since I was a child, and how at certain moments in life I thought I’d overcome them for good, but they’d always rear their ugly heads again in time. I keep wondering why. Did I invite them back in? ‘The Exorcism’ is a call for these demons to stay away – but also a message to myself and others facing similar challenges, to hang on – even if they don’t.” 

 En over het album gaat ze verder: 

 “In the one hand, this album tells a very personal story – through its unintended theme of fear, obsessive thoughts and the escapes from them – and at the same time it represents the joy of finding the song’s true forms with everyone involved in the making of this record. That’s why I chose The Obsession as a title. It refers to my personal challenges with OCD that inspired many of the songs – but I’ve also started referring to the band as The Obsession – because there were moments in the studio with them that truly reminded me of why I’m obsessed with making music in the first place.”

Live:

17 augustus – Ulft, Dru Park / Huntenpop Festival 

14 september – Rotterdam, Baroeg Open Air 

4 oktober – Utrecht, TivoliVredenburg (Ronda)
