Carlie Hanson Releases New EP “DestroyDestroyDestroyDestroy”: Streaming
- American singer-songwriter Carlie Hanson released her sophomore EP “DestroyDestroyDestroyDestroy” on October 23, 2020.
The EP contains 7-track, featuring guest appearances from Lil West and iann dior.
Produced by The Monarch, Take a Daytrip, Big Taste, Tim Randolph, Imad Royal, House of Wolf, Skylar Mones, M-Phazes, Mitch Allan and Tone.
It is her first EP in almost a year and a half. “This project is full of everything I was feeling last year at 19 years old,” Carlie Hanson said of the EP in a press release. “It was a very weird time period in my life - I was finally getting used to being on my own in LA, I had told the world about my sexuality, I felt like I finally really knew what I wanted to say as an artist but at the same time I felt completely lost. I had started taking medication for the first time because I was experiencing really bad anxiety. Everyday felt like, even though I had all these great things going for me, I was still constantly in my head and always searching for something more. I was unhappy in my relationship at the time and really I just wanted to run. I wanted to destroy everything and that's where these songs were born. Sometimes you have to destroy yourself to become a better version of yourself.”
“We, as a society, cannot ignore what is happening in our world every single day. From police brutality to corrupt leaders, to the inequality that many people face in their everyday lives, we need to stand up for ourselves and for other people and be loud as f— as it seems to be the only thing that works! Sit down, so we can speak up for ourselves, so we can be heard.
I'm a massive fan of iann dior and felt that he would totally get this song and the energy. I'm so excited to finally release our baby. I hope we can inspire others to fight for the change they want to see in the world.”
“'Daze Inn' was inspired by a spontaneous few days I spent holed up with my former lover, just escaping reality for a weekend. It's filled with euphoria and nostalgia and everything we did together in our little hideaway.”
“Stealing All My Friends”
“Since the passing of two of my favorite artists, Lil Peep and Mac Miller, I have wanted to write a tribute song to the both of them. When I first sat down to actually write 'Stealing All My Friends,' it became something bigger, deeper and more personal. We all have somebody in our lives who has struggled with or been affected by drug addiction in some way. Some are strong enough to overcome it and some unfortunately, are not. I have seen firsthand what drugs can do to a person and it is not pretty, but it is real and something that I felt needed to be talked about.”
