FLETCHER Announces New Album “In Search Of The Antidote”, Premieres New Song “Lead Me On” on BBC Radio 1
American singer-songwriter FLETCHER has announced that her sophomore album “In Search Of The Antidote” will be released on March 22, 2024.
The album comprises a 11-track, with contributors including Aldae, Jon Bellion, Julia Michaels, Monsters & Strangerz, and Michael Pollack.
It is her first body of work in two years since the 2022 debut album “Girl of My Dreams”.
FLETCHER said of the album, “Over the years, I've looked for the antidote in so many things: women, the road, the stage, fans, spirituality and self-reflection. Making this album was an excavation, a deep dive where I asked myself what would truly heal me, and my ultimate realization was that love is the antidote. From the Finding Fletcher EP to you ruined new york city for me to THE S(EX) TAPES to Girl Of My Dreams, love has always been my muse. But before now, I don't think I'd ever really looked at love through all the different lenses and angles and discovered all its infinite manifestations. That's what this album is about for me.”
- From the album, she premiered a new song “Lead Me On” along with a music video on BBC Radio 1's Future Pop with Mollie King.
The song is the second single off of the album, following the release of “Eras Of Us” last December.
The track was written by Cari Fletcher, Gregory 'Aldae' Hein, Jason Cornet, Jon Bellion, Jordan K. Johnson, Michael Pollack, Pete Nappi, and Stefan Johnson.
Produced by The Monsters & Strangerz, Jon Bellion, and Pete Nappi.
She said of the song, “For some people 'Lead Me On' might sound like a breakup song, where I'm telling someone that I'll take whatever crumbs I can get from them. Or it might sound like a song where I'm speaking to a better, healthier version of me that exists in the future. It's a version that's a higher self in some way, and I'm connecting with her through these little moments of clarity or intuition and asking her to keep guiding me down that path. All the songs on this album were written on multiple levels, and they exist in many dimensions at one time.”
The music video was directed by Alexandre Moors, who filmed at an apartment in Paris.
FLETCHER said of the video, “The video shows a woman suspended from the ceiling in rope, which to me felt like a depiction of love being gorgeous and painful at the same time. There are so many intricacies and tiny little details when you zoom in - but then when you zoom out, it's this beautiful piece of art that somehow seamlessly flows together.”
