Dodie has released her hushed new track "I Kissed Someone (It Wasn't You)" as a fourth preview of her highly-anticipated debut album Build A Problem.
dodie explains, ""I Kissed Someone (It Wasn’t You)" is set in the aftermath of a newly-single person's messy night out. It’s the feeling of trying to patch over a broken, lonely heart by indulging in a revenge fantasy of promiscuity - sadly only resulting in feeling lost, lonelier and shameful. I wrote the song to take place in a drunken, dark mindset - teetering on the edge of sinking deep into the bad thoughts that alcohol can amplify, before snapping back in the verses to a slightly more grounded, but still sad, place."
dodie penned the songs for Build A Problem over the space of two years. She said, "I think I was going through a crisis actually. I was very unsure of who I was and I was trying to figure it out in music. So I think it’s quite unstable of an album - but it’s definitely honest."
On how she hopes listeners will receive the album, dodie added, "I’d like people to come away from this album knowing what I can do."
