Hope Is A Drug
About this deal
It’s fascinating how the human psyche has the endless capacity for optimism as a mechanism for overcoming adversity. As people around the world continue to navigate their way through the complexities of everyday life post the darkness of 2020 and 2021, Charlie Simpson provides fans with an optimistic ray of light today (April 22nd) in the form of his fourth studio album, ‘Hope Is A Drug’.
I have found the words to be more direct than on his other albums, easier to connect with and find a message in that means something to yourself, as well as to Charlie. With an uncompromising approach to creating truly honest music, 2022 is set to be a hugely exciting chapter for one of the UKs most celebrated voices. He informed Virgin Radio that most of the tracks were written on the piano, rather than his usual instrument, the guitar.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The fourth studio album by Charlie Simpson, the record was announced on November 16, 2021, along with its tour.
The arrangement and production is a little different to the previous releases, which were somewhat retro in style, with a bit of a 70s vibe. Differing from his previous artistry of anything acoustic, he wanted to "make a more intimate sounding record" and "explore the different ranges of my voice, you know, get to do a bit more than falsetto stuff". Don't do what I did and drink two glasses of red wine before listening to the album, because it will have you in tears.Due to inventory and accounting purposes, we do not exchange items received for different items than originally purchased. His sound has evolved slightly but still very much recognisable from his previous three solo albums. Hot on the heels of a sold out show at London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum, Charlie is delighted to announce a brand new solo album ‘Hope Is A Drug’. As a lifelong music fan, being able to get my hands on a physical album is something I treasure, and I feel very passionate about continuing this tradition by releasing all formats at the same time.
The new album will now be released on April 15th, and as with all touring cycles, naturally I want you to have the new album before my upcoming shows, so the tour has been pushed back to May, with the exception of both London shows remaining on April 18 and 19. Hailing from Suffolk, Charlie Simpson began his musical career in 2001, gaining commercial and critical success with Busted and Fightstar before going solo. The way he uses lyrics and his own production techniques, harmonising with his own voice always draws me into his music.It's fascinating how the human psyche has the endless capacity for optimism as a mechanism for overcoming adversity.
