ELIO, the project of singer-songwriter Charlotte Grace Victoria, has previewed her upcoming EP Can You Hear Me Now with a new song called ‘hurts 2 hate somebody’. Check it out below, alongside a video co-directed by ELIO, SunsetSahil, and Oliver Whitfield-Smith.
“‘Hurts 2 hate somebody’ is a track about moving on from resenting someone or even a situation,” ELIO explained in a statement. “I’m naturally a very pessimistic person, I’ve really had to train my mind to not jump to the worst thing that could possibly happen or just assume someone hates me right off the bat. It gets to a point where you get so tired of being miserable that it’s more harmful to yourself than to the person you hate. It’s really not worth the energy, and when you realize that, you begin to recognize it in other people.”
Can You Hear Me Now, the follow-up to this year’s u and me, but mostly me EP, is set for release in January of 2021. It includes the previously released single ‘jackie onassis’.
