King Charles releases new video for ‘Deeper Love/Freak’ today. The video begins with track ‘Deeper Love’ which sees Charles waking from the night before in an elated, tipsy state. He’s trapped in a loop, a cycle of events that keep occurring that he can’t break out of as the video then develops into ‘Freak’ and shows Charles in a surreal state as he’s disorientated and the loop continues.
King Charles has also rescheduled his UK headline tour dates for this October including an extra date in Manchester (see full dates below).
‘Deeper Love’ is a sensual soul strut, in which Charles’ flamboyant falsetto flies above his newfound funk-fuelled groove. It explores modern love in 2019 with the tale of a lothario turned on his head, or a player getting played. “‘Deeper Love’ is about the lothario who’s been stopped in his tracks,” says Charles. “I wanted to acknowledge the power of the female in this situation.”
‘Freak’ has a woozy neo-soul vibe, possessed by a far darker undercurrent… “It’s reflective of my mood and where I was…I was trying to understand what is it to be human, to be an artist, to be a monster. I needed a way to express the pain and that’s the beautiful thing about creativity. It feeds back into you, so you understand more about the things that colour your identity.” says Charles.
King Charles’ new album will be titled ‘Out Of My Mind’ and is due for release this April 17th. The album expresses his journey of recovery to mental and physical health and is a collection of soulful and eclectic songs that portray Charles’ flamboyant personality and showcases a fascinating reinvention of King Charles. His full recovery since his serious ski accident in 2010 has made way for a collection of soul searching songs and proved his determination and strength of will. Charles snuck a mini-synth into the hospital and wrote some of the albums whilst there until he was fully discharged in 2018.
