Charlotte Cornfield Announces New Album 'Highs in the Minuses'
Hear her new single "Headlines"
Published Aug 05, 2021Toronto singer-songwriter Charlotte Cornfield has announced her full-length follow-up to 2019's The Shape of Your Name. The artist will release Highs in the Minuses on October 29 via Next Door Records in Canada and Polyvinyl/Double Double Whammy elsewhere.
Today, Cornfield shares the album's new single "Headlines," which arrives with its own music video directed by Adrienne McLaren Devenyi. The clip finds Cornfield expressing "the joy of seeing people, of those little interactions that happen throughout the day that I missed so much in the last year and a half."
She elaborated in a statement:
When I wrote this song I was spending so much time walking alone through my neighbourhood, and I wanted the video to take place on the same streetscape but be the antidote to that solitude. To me, the city is so much about the people in it. Adrienne McLaren Devenyi, the director, came up with this arc of me exchanging objects with people as I move through the neighbourhood and that just created a beautiful jumping off point for these interactions.
Highs in the Minuses was recorded at the Montreal studio of Arcade Fire's Howard Bilerman with Ada Lea on bass and Suuns drummer Liam O'Neill. The record also features contributions from Sam Gleason and Stars' Amy Millan.
