CHARLOTTE WESSELS Unveils Mesmerizing Second Single/Video “Chasing Sunsets”

Charismatic Dutch singer-songwriter CHARLOTTE WESSELS (ex-DELAIN) returns with a captivating new single, “Chasing Sunsets.” The track, which is at once melancholic and upbeat, highlights her inimitable voice and memorable hooks, complemented by a mesmerizing music video.

Taken from her highly anticipated first traditional full-length solo album, The Obsession, set to be released on September 20, 2024 via Napalm Records, this album is promising a storytelling exploration of fear and liberation. Featuring guest appearances by Simone Simons of Epica and Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy, it blends catchy elements with progressive and heavier soundscapes, marking the most significant step in WESSELS’ solo career.

Wessels and her band will bring this story to the stage for a release show on October 4, 2024 at Utrecht’s TivoliVredenburg. In addition, there’ll be some exciting festival appearances this year, and it was recently announced that CHARLOTTE WESSELS will join VOLA on their Friend of a Phantom EU Tour 2024, kicking off November 1st. Don’t miss the chance to undergo this astonishing live experience!    

CHARLOTTE WESSELS on the new single and official music video:          
“When I released the initial version of ´Chasing Sunsets´ on Patreon, it was an instant favorite, and it grew so much since then as we worked on it for the album, I can’t wait to share this track with the world! There’s an underlying theme of self-preservation and greed in the song that we visualized in the music video. I’ve never felt so much like we’re living in the hunger games where parts of the world continue lavish lifestyles while others suffer complete devastation. We worked with this theme in the music video through an artificial beautiful landscape and styling, all staged in a barren space with burning trees.”
