Tamworth singer-songwriter Charlie Collins has released the official music video for her latest single, the blistering ‘Fuck It’.
Directed by Madeline Purdy (Flowerkid, Gordi), the video sees Collins in a space void of personality, discovering artefacts of a life she once lived.

Pairing her classic country roots with a clear pop edge and dreamy vocals, according to Collins, the song is about when a break-up becomes a public debate.
Written at the end of a relationship, Collins explained the song’s origins in a press release, “At the time, when I was going through this separation, I needed a friend more than a critic.
“This song is an acknowledgement of blame but also recognising that you don’t need that judgement.”
On the concept of the video, Purdy said, “Making a video for a song with such raw emotional content was an intimidating brief.
“Charlie is a very open and honest person, which made it possible for us to make something authentic together.”
‘Fuck It’ is Collins’ first new material since the release of her album ‘Snowpine’ in 2019.
The debut offering saw Collins release a string of successful singles, including ‘I Don’t Want to Be in a Rock Band’, ‘Please Let Me Go’ and ‘Space Between’, and her debut release, ‘Wish You Were Here’, which dropped back in 2018.
For ‘Snowpine’, Collins was nominated in the Best Country Album category at the 2019 ARIA Awards, losing out to Morgan Evans’ ‘Things That We Drink To’.
Collins will launch ‘Fuck It’ at a live show at Sydney’s Lazybones Lounge on Tuesday May 4.
