Australia’s Hatchie has returned with new single "This Enchanted" today (14 September) to celebrate the announcement of her signing to Secretly Canadian.
"This Enchanted" is Hatchie's first outing of the year, following last summer's cover of The Jesus and Mary Chain's "Sometimes Always" with The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, and is her debut release on Secretly Canadian.
Hatchie, real name Harriette Pilbeam, says of the new release, ""This Enchanted" encapsulates everything I wanted to do moving forward from my first album. I started writing it with Jorge and Joe in February 2020 and completed it from afar in lockdown later in the year. We had been talking about making something dancey but shoegaze."
Pilbeam continues, "It's one of the more light-hearted, 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."
She's yet to follow up her 2019 debut album Keepsake.
