Fourteen Years is the first of three 10" comprising Charlotte Courbe's third album. It marks her return to Honest Jon's after two decades. Recently, Charlotte joined Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, singing and playing scissors. Her recording "Born To Lie" featured prominently in the TV series Killing Eve. After a cancer diagnosis last year, Charlotte felt the urge to produce and release new music. "It became like a vital thing." "MRI Song" and "Planet Ping Pong" were recorded during chemotherapy. "Mind Contorted" is a duet with Terry Hall, also featuring Terry's son Theodore, and Noel Gallagher on guitars, in a cover of Daniel Johnston. The song Fourteen Years is the oldest inclusion. Meant for LVC's second album -- I Wish Dee Dee Ramone Was Here With Me -- it announces a fresh, freer direction. The sleeve exclusively presents new work by the celebrated English artist, John Stezaker, in the first of a triptych. This EP is laced with surprise and subversiveness. It's refreshing candor sets it apart. It's a unique, compelling listen.
"When I first met her she was wearing a cape. She looked like a little piece of Lego. She told me she liked some of my songs but not all of them. (I hadn't even asked her opinion!) She's beautiful, fearless and one hell of a tambourine player." --Noel Gallagher
"Inspiring originality, fiercely independent, beautiful music, always years ahead of its time. I remember hearing Charlotte's music for the first time and being immediately taken by the freshness, great melodies and utterly unique approach." --Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine
