Charlotte Adigéry reflects on confinement with “Bear With Me”

Charlotte Adigéry‘s new track, “Bear With Me (and I’ll stand bare before you),” is taken from DEEWEE‘s first compilation album, Foundations, out May 7.

For more than a year, the world has been living a strange situation. A small virus – read a huge pandemic – has pushed us to live in confinement . As many of you might have noticed, isolation is not an easy thing for the social animals that we are, even with all the available “social” technologies.

With “Bear With Me (and I’ll stand bare before you),” Caribbean-Belgian artist Charlotte Adigéry navigates the intimacy and vulnerability as well as the insecurities that artists face during this new lockdown-lifestyle. The track, that she co-wrote with her label partner Bolis Pupul, addresses the potential change in human behavior. “We believe 2020 has been such a cornerstone for the 21st century,” she explains. “This song is about being confined thus confronted to the way we live.”

She then adds:

“On the other hand the song is about not being able to run away from yourself and being confronted with your relationship to yourself and others. Not hovering from one busy schedule to another, never looking back.”

“Bear With Me (and I’ll stand bare before you),” is the opening track of Foundations (pre-order), the first compilation album from 2 Many DJ‘s label DEEWEE. The 27-track project also features two other exclusive tracks, courtesy of James Righton and Movulango.
