20-year-old Maude Latour has released “Lovesick”: the electrifying final track of her six-part debut EP Starsick.
Maude Latour takes her listeners on a journey of heartbreak through her new catchy electro-pop track. Silky harmonies (the chorus is sung by a choir) and rousing melodies mix with poignant lyrics (“Love you till my heart stops / Love you till I’m car sick”) tug on familiar feelings of lovesickness, all the while making you want to get up and dance.
Latour says, “‘It’s insane how powerful heartache is, it is the stuff of life. This song is about these feelings; acknowledging their power, letting it go and being grateful for how lucky we are to feel any sort of connection between people despite how much space there is in the world.”
“‘Lovesick’ makes me cry for a lot of reasons. I learned about lovesickness from a college class. We read so many texts like Sappho, or Virgil’s Aeneid where love is treated like a disease. It used to be diagnosed by doctors. The thing is, lovesickness truly is so physical and all consuming. It affects my immune system, my clarity and the way I’m operating,” Latour adds.
“The chorus here is truly a choir. I was feeling so fed up with hooks and song structure and insisted on writing a choir of different parts overlapping to make an angelic symphony. This is ‘Lovesick’”.
