Camille Trust has released a stripped rework of her latest single “Love Myself,” created to embody the pain and growth that comes from love lost. Created at Moon Recording in Brooklyn, NY. The recording is a live take featuring Ben Hoffman on the Wurlitzer along with Melissa McMillan and Schadrac Pierre on back-up vocals – CLICK HERE to watch.
Her first new track since the release of “Queen Savage” nearly a year ago, “Love Myself” follows the blueprint of much of Trust’s raw and emotionally-charged catalog, which often sees her wearing her paper heart right on her sleeve. Admitting “I wish that I could tell you that I know how to love you, but I don’t even know how to love myself” in the song’s confessional chorus, “Love Myself” transparently recounts Trust’s personal growth following a substantial breakup and her realization that self-worth is as valuable in a relationship as the love we receive.
“‘Love Myself’ was born from the realization that one must be right within themselves before they can we ready to love someone else. The importance of the realization of one’s own worthiness is everything I stand behind and feel is a necessary component to life,” shares Trust. “I wrote this song after a heavy break-up. One of those break-ups where you still love each other, but you both have some self-work to do.”
