Beginning March 3, Toronto based singer-songwriter Charlotte Cornfield is taking her show on the road with a string of Ontario and Quebec tour dates (listed below), but today, she’s sharing another song from her forthcoming record, Future Snowbird.
“I wanted to write something that touched on the volatility of moods, the quickness at which things can go from light to dark,” says Cornfield about “Mercury”, the album’s second song, premiering today and streaming below. “These shifts have always been very present for me and the imagery in this song reflects that: fleeting beauty, crushing illness, souring milk.”
Cornfield’s friend, Tim Darcy of the band Ought, joins on her on song: “I thought his voice would be the perfect antidote to my mine, causing this push and pull in line delivery that I think really captures the sentiment of the song. I’ve been a fan of Tim’s since we were both kicking around the college scene in Montreal seven or eight years ago. We’ve become close friends and have started collaborating regularly, and I’m so happy he was able to lend his voice to this track.”
Future Snowbird was recorded live off the floor at Rooster Studios in Toronto with Cornfield’s longtime bandmates Sam Gleason, Damon Hankoff, Kathryn Palumbo, and Sam Rosenberg, and produced and engineered by Don Kerr (Ron Sexsmith, The Rheostatics).
