Somebody Who's Not Me
“Somebody Who’s Not Me” is the new single by Swiss-born and raised singer-songwriter Chloé Sautereau. Released on September 14, 2023 it stands as the artist's third promotional single. The song was recorded at Corner Store Studios with CJ Colon and produced by Chloé herself.
“‘Somebody Who’s Not Me’ came to me in a moment of true vulnerability, questioning and introspection. A moment where I felt stuck, unsure where to look, where to go, or if I was capable of what I was after. Of what I am after. So I tried to look within. This song poured out of me, stripped me down in a way that would only let me grow; it’s the song that’s just “me”, in a way that no song I’ve written before has felt. I always strive for honesty in my writing, but this has the kind of honesty that I think I had never dared to have with myself.” -Chloé Sauterreau
