Charlotte Wessels Reveals New Album + Releases Video For New Single 'The Exorcism'

The first full studio album experience by Dutch singer/songwriter Charlotte Wessels (ex-DELAIN)!

After announcing the release of her new studio album for September 20, charismatic Dutch singer/songwriter Charlotte Wessels has unveiled the album’s title together with the first single! Entitled 'The Obsession', the album marks Wessels’ Napalm Records debut, and while her earlier solo endeavors - full-length song compilations 'Tales From Six Feet Under' (2021) and 'Tales From Six Feet Under Vol II' (2022) - already gained her a remarkable number of devotees, 'The Obsession' truly takes her solo career to the next level.

The new album promises a cohesive exploration of fear and liberation, as well as spellbinding melancholia and dark, catchy elements meeting progressive and heavier soundscapes. The storytelling within the songs gives the multifaceted album even more depth, making The Obsession an exciting listening experience and Wessels’ most mature solo offering so far.       

First single “The Exorcism” is astonishing proof of Wessels’ matchless talent and genre-bending songwriting qualities, and in addition, marks the heaviest solo offering she has released so far. Quietly drawing the listener into this sonic sphere, the song bursts into a heavy attack shortly after. It’s calm and loud, reduced and bombastic, fragile and confident alike and presents Charlotte Wessels' thrilling full vocal range - heating up the anticipation for everything that’s to come! “The Exorcism” is now available on all streaming services worldwide, and fans can now experience the official high-quality video, linked below! 

Charlotte Wessels on “The Exorcism”:          

“I’ve been thinking a lot about fears and behaviors I’ve had since I was a child, and how at certain moments in life I thought I’d overcome them for good, but they’d always rear their ugly heads again in time. I keep wondering why. Did I invite them back in? ‘The Exorcism’ is a call for these demons to stay away - but also a message to myself and others facing similar challenges, to hang on – even if they don’t.”
