CHAMPS Releases New Song “My Baby Lorraine”
British indie pop duo CHAMPS, consisting of two brothers, Michael Champion and David Champion, released a new song “My Baby Lorraine” on November 16, 2022.
The song is the second single off of their upcoming fourth studio album (yet-untitled), following “Adeleine”.
The track was written by Michael Champion, David Champion, and Sean Oakley. Produced by CHAMPS and James Thorpe.
“The song originally came to life when I absent-mindedly played a bass line on our producer's newly acquired vintage synth,” David Champion said of the song. “The droning note present throughout was only the second layer added to the song, providing a slightly foreboding sense of unsettling urgency, anchoring it and driving it forwards.”
- He continued, “The song chugs and breathes like a mechanical beast and the sense of menace provided by the instrumentation is echoed in its lyrical content; 'you should have been running, I told you it's coming, it's too late to put it aside', a line born from a real-life feud. Mixed by Sean Oakley (Portugal the Man, Frank Ocean), the song became fully realized when LA-based multi-instrumentalist Mikey Wagner added bass guitar, injecting a final dose of human feel to the song's rhythm section.”
The new album is expected to released in 2023. It is their first album in four years since the 2019 album “The Hard Interchange”.
