dodie shares her searing new single “I Kissed Someone (It Wasn’t You),” the latest track to be lifted from her forthcoming debut album Build A Problem which is now due for release 7 May via her label. The new single follows “Hate Myself”, which premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World and was playlisted on Radio 1.
“‘I Kissed Someone (It Wasn’t You)’ is set in the aftermath of a newly single person’s messy night out,” explains dodie. “It’s the feeling of trying to patch over a broken, lonely heart by indulging in a revenge fantasy of promiscuity – sadly only resulting in feeling lost, lonelier and shameful. I wrote the song to take place in a drunken, dark mindset – teetering on the edge of sinking deep into the bad thoughts that alcohol can amplify, before snapping back in the verses to a slightly more grounded, but still sad, place.”
By her own admission, dodie may be a work in progress; problems have been built, mistakes have been made, but with Build A Problem, she’s proven that she is an artist for the ages. Stream the new track below!
