JODIE NICHOLSON – Acclaimed songwriter emerges with euphoric single ‘You Wanted This’.

Ahead of the release of her brand new album Safe Hands on May 10th 2024, acclaimed North East songwriter and producer Jodie Nicholson shares the lead single ‘You Wanted This’ via Quiet Crown / Absolute on Wednesday 24th April 2024. 

Blending minimalism and melancholy, ‘You Wanted This’ reflects upon the complex love-hate relationship that comes with being a musician. 

Opening with a hypnotic melody and pulsing keys, her signature rich harmonies and ethereal, reed-like vocals infuse the listener with a haunting reflection of present time. The track drives forward with Nicholson’s brand of soft-electro, growing to a euphoric, synth-laden ending, with emphatic beats and swirling vocals. 

Speaking on the track, Jodie reveals: “To me, ‘You Wanted This’ is about remembering why I fell in love with music in the first place. As a kid, I was obsessed with Avril Lavigne, wished I was one of Roger Waters’ backing vocalists, always searching for cool music that no-one else was listening to, wanting to be on Stars In Their Eyes and sitting in the back of the car pretending I was in a music video, singing all moody through the window… It’s thinking back to how I viewed music then and regaining that child-like excitement for the music I make now as an artist. I’d like to think that if I ever have a wobble, this track will serve as a personal reminder of why I love being an artist and what I can be capable of. Unintentional, but it’s a pretty nice feeling.”
