Charli Adams is teasing her debut album with new single, 'Didn't Make It'

Charli Adams has announced her debut album, ‘Bullseye’.

Produced by Brian Kierulf, mixed by Patrick Dillett, and due in 2021, its title is inspired by a nickname Justin Vernon gave her after a chance darts-playing encounter in a Nashville bar.

The news arrives alongside her teaser single ‘Didn’t Make It’ too, a song about letting go.

“I wrote ‘Didn’t Make It’ about trying way too hard to be with someone and cutting your losses," she explains. "When there’s memories and nostalgia tied to someone it’s hard to let go and accept it for what it is. I was stuck on a loop with this guy when we were 17 and we just kept fucking it up.

"I love a song with hidden references (even if I’m the only one who knows it’s there), so “You were racing in the streets” is a reference to my favourite Bruce Springsteen song and “We were kids we broke the chain” is a reference to Fleetwood Mac. Growing up I was basically only exposed to what was on the radio in the 2000’s and it wasn’t until this relationship that I discovered the classics. There was so many influences on the ‘Bullseye’ record but it all really started there."

Check it out below.
