TUNE Charlotte Haining - Young
I wrote Young on a writing trip to Stockholm last year with two of my favourite songwriting collaborators; Emelie Eriksson & Mattias Andreasson. There's always some kind of magic in the air when the three of us are in a room together. We inevitably got into a deep conversation about love, specifically love post honeymoon phase & began to talk about the new kinds of anxiety felt beyond a certain point in a relationship. You can begin to overthink every little thing but in a single moment, when they kiss you, you are reminded of exactly where you started & the journey you are both on together. My Grandparents have always been a massive inspiration for me when it comes to epic love stories. Together since they were 16, married for 64 years & experienced a hell of a journey together. When my Grandad became ill & subsequently passed away earlier this year, I knew I had to release "Young" as a little nod to the love story my grandparents shared.
