Charlotte Dos Santos has returned with a new song, ‘Away From You’, out now via Because Music. Produced by Dos Santos and Tom Henry of Gotts Street Park (Kali Uchis, Celeste, Mabel), the track arrives with an accompanying video directed by Margot Bowman. Check it out below.
“‘Away From You’ is a song about being in love and not wanting to be with anyone other than your one person,” Dos Santons explained in a statement. “It’s an r&b/pop song for folks in love and wanting to move. The song was written after a bike ride and a cute day outside and I wanted to capture that feeling. I wanted to write an uplifting track after such a heavy year and especially after really longing for dancing, and being outside with friends and loved ones. The video is a reference to that, the freedom that we lost, and how we find it again – love and movement will always live and thrive despite everything. This is the first video of this journey of exploration of heritage, identity and happiness.”
Bowman added: “I loved collaborating with Charlotte on this special project using beauty, time, and the premise that history is a construct to explore her unique world. It’s such a powerful time to reexamine the past and build a better future out of what we find there.”
‘Away From You’ marks the first piece of new music from Charlotte Dos Santos since the release of 2020’s Harvest Time EP.
