Charlie & Margot Announce New Album
Today Charlie & Margot, the musical project of Matteo DeBenedetti, share the single “Lonely” from his upcoming debut album Joyride. The 8-song LP, out April 7th, spans from indie to Americana and alternative, and isn’t afraid to wear influences like Jason Isbell and Dr. Dog on its sleeve while still feeling like its own unique piece of art. Produced by longtime friend and collaborator Erik Kase Romero (the Front Bottoms, Lorde, The Bouncing Souls), the fully live tracked debut LP comes with a sense of urgency that can only instill the feeling this is just the opening page of a longer story to come.
“‘Lonely’ is written about self evaluation during a time of intense isolation, in this instance, during the quarantine and subsequent months. It has a lot to do with managing my insecurities, and creating a healthy perception of how I see myself vs how others see me in the world, and managing expectations between life partners while growing to try to understand each other,” says DeBenedetti.
