After “Ten Thousand Stories” and “Get to Know You Game” (featured on Spotify’s Created By Women) earlier this year, the artist continues her series of self-produced, stripped down singles, highlighting her vivid story-telling and unapologetically intimate tone.

‘Catch My Fall Again’ is about missing that person, hoping they’ll be there even when they haven’t been. It’s about being confused because your feelings manifest in ways you didn’t expect. It’s in part relieving, though, because it’s about accepting what you feel and felt, the moments lived, and that no matter what happens there’s value in those instants. It’s a love song and while it’s a little sad because that comes with the territory, to me it’s hopeful – simply in that there’s growth in finally putting down like “oh that’s
how I feel”. Both lyrically and melodically, this is a playful one to me as well. It’s a song to cozy up to this winter, to walk in the cold, to fall in love, or to heal to.”

“Catch My Fall Again” was written, recorded, and produced by Chloé herself, with the help of Ben Gordon on bass. Stripped back, the stakes are in her voice and grounded guitar. The track was mixed and mastered by Harry Burr.
