Hatchie, the moniker of Australian singer-songwriter Harriette Pilbeam, has signed to Secretly Canadian. Along with today’s announcement, she’s shared a video for the new single ‘This Enchanted’, her first new music since her 2019 debut album Keepsake. Check it out below.
“‘This Enchanted’ encapsulates everything I wanted to do moving forward from my first album,” Hatchie said in a press release. “I started writing it with [producer Jorge Elbrecht] and [guitarist Joe Agius] in February 2020 and completed it from afar in lockdown later in the year. We had been talking about making something dancey but shoegaze.”
She added: “It’s one of the more lighthearted, lyrically vague songs of my new recordings about falling in love; it’s not a perfect relationship, but you’re enthralled by one another and it’s an easy love. It’s one of the most fun songs I’ve written, so it was a no-brainer to pick it as my first solo release in almost two years. It feels so right to be working with a label as exciting as Secretly as I step into new territory with Hatchie. I’ve been counting down the days until its release for a long time.”
