Charlotte Sands is showing off her ’90s-baby sounds on her new song “get over it.” Full of nostalgia-inducing falsetto and acoustic guitar strums interlaced with electronic elements, this song sounds just like a Top 40 hit from the pre-Y2K era. Basically, if you love Alanis Morisette‘s Jagged Little Pill, you need this on your playlist ASAP.

Preceded by “use me,” this track will also appear on can we start over? due out on January 24, 2024. Check out the new song below and pre-order the record here.

“‘get over it’ is a song about the inability to let go of someone even when you know it’s the right thing to do,” Sands says. “We wrote it about the feeling of being drawn to someone after ending a relationship, almost like this undeniable magnetic pull towards each other, and how easy it is to convince yourself to fall for the deception of those past emotions and previous history. I wanted the song to feel upbeat and happy and reflect the moments where you’re allowing yourself to be delusional about a non-existent relationship with this person. There’s something about letting go of what you’re supposed to do and instead leaning into the chaos of the situation that I felt inspired by and also very much related to.”

While we don’t know too much about her grand full-length album debut, including its tracklist and the like, Sands does offer a bit of insight for fans eagerly awaiting the new year to arrive.

She shares, “The inspiration behind the title can we start over? came while writing a song for the album about the idea of restarting a relationship, and the idea of beginning again or reintroducing yourself to someone. I’ve changed so much over the last few years personally and in my career and I love the concept of starting over as who I am now with the information and knowledge I’ve gained.”

Sands continues, “It’s not about forgetting the past or regretting our choices but more so letting go of the previous version of ourselves and meeting each other where we are at this moment in the phases that we’re currently in. I think this album for me represents exactly that, standing firmly where I am as the person I am today.”

Uniquely, Sands didn’t initially plan to release a full album, but after an incredibly empowering and fulfilling series of writing sessions, she knew it just felt right.

“A few months ago I had no intention of releasing a full-length project. I flew to LA in May and had three sessions with songwriter/producers Jutes, Alex Nice, and Keith Ten4 [Sorrells]. Every night that I left the studio I remember thinking to myself, ‘That’s my favorite song I’ve ever written,’ and then the next day we would write a song I loved even more,” Sands says. “At the end of the three days, I had three records that felt like the best music I’d ever been a part of. Each song was so different yet so representative of who I am now, I knew they would someday be released into the world but I was certain they had to be released together.”
