PREMIERE VIDEO: JAKE LORE - CHARLIE

TEXT ALEX HAWGOOD

JAKE LORE'S NEWEST SINGLE IS ABOUT THE ONE WHO GOT AWAY, AND WAS NEVER EVEN VERY CLOSE. WATCH THE EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE OF "CHARLIE" HERE ON VMAN.COM

July 29th, 2014. Despite the tough-as-nails exterior of musician Jake Lore—he has 44 tattoos (and counting), including 10 on his face and the crown of his skull—the 31-year-old Brooklyn-based pop newcomer is a softie at heart. For “Charlie,” one of the standout tracks on his new EP Born To Believe, Lore joins the long-standing pop canon that explores the heartache that comes from an arms-length lover. “I think everyone has a Charlie,“ Lore said. “That person who is never quite what you need them to be. ‘Charlie’ is really about letting that stuff go.”

With a haunting, glitchy, electronic beat courtesy of producer Eric Ronick (Panic! At The Disco), catharsis is found in the track’s expansive, unfurling chorus that bemoans the conflicting pleasures that arise from a “favorite future heart attack.” Here, VMAN.com exclusively premieres “Charlie” alongside a live performance at The Invisible Dog Gallery in Brooklyn featuring a collaged image installation created by Lore himself. “I was shooting for a combination of calm and terror, beauty and destruction, and ultimately a sense of rebirth.”  

Ultimately, it’s the song’s lyrics that Lore hopes will leave the most lasting impression. “I know Charlie will be someone different and mean something different to everyone,” he says. “I can’t wait to see how the song evolves.”
