Charlee Remitz has dropped the title track from her forthcoming album, which will be released on December 18th. CLICK HERE to listen to “Heaven’s a Scary Place” now. The fearless new song highlights Charlee’s incredible strength as a talented songwriter, and her thought-provoking lyrics shine over moody 80s synths. Says Charlee, “On every album, I have one song that takes no hostages. This is that one song. It orbits around this lyric: ‘I bet if Jesus walked into heaven, he’d think he was lost.’ At least, this is true of the heaven that’s exclusive to cis-gendered white people who can pay for their sins. I want to describe the anger I feel towards the Catholic Church, in particular, eloquently, but all I can think to do is start screaming at the top of my lungs. This divine protection of rapists, condemnation of sex workers and willful ignorance towards men paying for sex, it’s so backwards and disgusting, and it makes faith sound like a dirty word.”
Heaven’s a Scary Place is a ten-song project about letting go and moving on, and the full track listing can be found below. Don’t forget to check out previously released singles “The New 1980s,” which landed on Spotify’s Fresh Finds Playlist, “Romance Me,” and “Season Friends,” and “Movie Theater,” a song all about witnessing some of the scariest moments of 2020 and the desire to have someone to lean on during one of the craziest years of our lives.
