Brooklyn-based, Metro-Detroit-bred singer-songwriter, Charlie Burg, has shared new single, “Lancaster Nights,” out via FADER Label. The new track is the first part of his upcoming double single release, “Lancaster Nights/Title Guide to the Talkies,” due September 9. After previously sharing three EPs, his last EP, Three, Fever, grabbed the attention of major tastemakers at Beats1, Spotify (including playlists like Lorem, Pollen and Fresh Finds) and more. He also just toured with Ashe, Jeremy Zucker, and Moonchild. Burg is only 23-years-old and the list of accomplishments continues to stack up, just like his stream-count. Burg sailed past 1.4 million plays on his last single, “Channel Orange In Your Living Room” and the numbers keep climbing
Continuing his tradition of charity work, much like he did for City Harvest in April 2020, Burg is launching a new t-shirt, for sale on his website. The newest Charlie Burg merch is designed by artist Bianca Fields, and all proceeds will be donated to the Intersectional Environmentalist, an initiative dedicated to dismantling systems of oppression in the environmentalist movement.
“I want people to know that every and any story can be interesting if you find the narrative in it,” Burg explains regarding his artistic—and humanistic—aims. “Some songwriters might lack confidence in their own story, but the fact is that their lives are the stories that no one else owns. When people hear my music, I want them to be able to look inside themselves and realize there’s life, art, and beauty in everything.”
