Chelsea Jade Shares Introspective New Single 'Life Of The Party' (+ Interview)

Wednesday 12th April, 2017 9:53AM

LA-based dream pop purveyor Chelsea Jade has lifted the lid off new single 'Life Of The Party' and teased a new album on the way. The Auckland native laid down the track at Claifornia's Fanta Studios with producer Leroy Clampitt, aka the 'Prince of Pirongia', who also had a hand in Justin Bieber's recent single 'Company'. While no release date has been announced for the new record, Chelsea told UTR the album is titled Personal Best. Take a listen to the new single and read our interview with Chelsea below...

Hi Chelsea! It’s been awhile since we’ve caught up with you! How is life treating you these days? What have you been up to?

Swaying with the imported palm trees, mostly.

‘Life Of The Party’ was written after a move to LA, been to any standout parties since your arrival?

I did go to a very outlandish party in a very expansive mansion a little while ago. I was in a car with Maddie North (So Below) on the way there and I believe we were singing the original Shortland Street theme song during the entire schlep from our little house in Echo Park to somewhere sprawling in Beverly Hills. I think it made us feel safe and contained. That or more panicked. Then we arrived and found a room permanently dedicated to dispensing candy so we lost our minds accordingly.

It seems the song talks about being simultaneously introspective while being sociable, is that something you are guilty of?

The song is really about admitting your deficiencies but hoping that they don’t alienate you from other people. It’s really about being a natural downer. I am not a deft social butterfly. In fact, I’m a basically complete disaster at broad strokes socialising with a higher body count than can sit comfortably in a car together.

You worked on this with Leroy Clampitt as producer. How did he help pull the best out of you to put to tape?

Tasty carves beautiful spoons in his spare time which could be analogous. He couldn’t whittle a good spoon without good wood and the spoon couldn’t scoop soup without a deeply dug dip. Does that work? I think we just enjoy hanging out and respect one another.

The song is part of a forthcoming album, can you tell us a little bit about it please?

It’s called Personal Best and that’s currently my personal best for dispensable information at this moment.
