CXLOE Releases New Song “12 Steps”
- Australian singer-songwriter CXLOE released her first single of 2020 called “12 Steps” alongside its official video directed by Tia Thorne on July 16th.
She co-wrote the song with Michael Pollack, Joe Khajadourian, Andrew Wells and Alex Schwartz.
The song is based on the idea of recovery following addiction, with the 12 step recovery program.
“Addiction runs in my family and I’ve always wanted to tell my story in a way that felt comfortable to me and those around me,” CXLOE explained. “The song mirrors the steps of the program through the eyes of a toxic relationship. I’ve spent time over the years becoming familiar with the program and think it is as important to treat unhealthy, toxic relationships with the same attention. Whether the addiction is to alcohol, food, shopping or a person, it all comes back to pain. And that’s something I can relate to. Seeking something or someone to mask pain.”
She continued, “Addiction needs to be spoken about and not treated as a taboo topic. This song has been written from my experiences and I have the utmost respect for those battling addiction and thank those strong people in my life for letting me shine light on these topics.”
