21-year-old Charlie Hickey will release his debut album later this month via Saddest Factory Records, the label owned by Hickey's long-time friend and collaborator Phoebe Bridgers. The Marshall Vore-produced record, entitled Nervous At Night, has already earned praise from the likes of NPR Music and Rolling Stone for early singles "Dandelions" and "Nervous At Night," and today, Hickey shares another track off of the forthcoming album entitled Gold Line." The track arrives disguised as a windows-down singalong, but hidden underneath is a deeper layer, as Hickey sings about feelings more immense than he can control or resist. Fitting for Mental Health Awareness Month, "Gold Line" offers insight into how Hickey uses songwriting and performing to cope with his anxiety and OCD. "Nervous At Night" is a gorgeous, 11-track record that finds Hickey detailing life's graceless passage between teenage years and adulthood and the noise that permeates. Hickey has always navigated the intricacies of life through a musical lens, both as a child of two musicians and as an artist who has surrounded himself with talented peers. Charlie Hickey made his SXSW debut earlier this year and just wrapped his first-ever bi-coastal tour of the U.S. in support of Wolf Alice and Lucius. Hickey will celebrate the release of "Nervous At Night" with shows in NYC and LA, performances at The Great Escape in the UK, and opening for labelmates MUNA in London.
