‘British singer-songwriter and producer Jodie Nicholson has shared the lead single of her upcoming album ‘Safe Hands’. New single ‘You Wanted This’ follows the previously shared tracks ‘What If I’ and ‘Another Frequency’.

‘You Wanted This’ is the opening track on ‘Safe Hands’ and delves into the love-hate relationship that comes with being a musician. The song strongly nods to Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, an artist whom, like Jodie Nicholson, we adore. Starting with a captivating melody and introspective vocals the song gradually evolves showcasing Nicholson’s signature soft-electronic sound. It all builds into a thrilling climax filled with uplifting synths and enchanting vocals.

About the new single she says:

“To me, ‘You Wanted This’ is about remembering why I fell in love with music in the first place. As a kid, I was obsessed with Avril Lavigne, wished I was one of Roger Waters’ backing vocalists, always searching for cool music that no-one else was listening to, wanting to be on Stars In Their Eyes and sitting in the back of the car pretending I was in a music video, singing all moody through the window… It’s thinking back to how I viewed music then and regaining that child-like excitement for the music I make now as an artist. I’d like to think that if I ever have a wobble, this track will serve as a personal reminder of why I love being an artist and what I can be capable of. Unintentional, but it’s a pretty nice feeling.”

‘You Wanted This’ is out now on all platforms. ‘Safe Hands‘ arrives May 10th via Quiet Crown.
