Australian songwriter Hatchie has shared the title track of her forthcoming album, ‘Giving The World Away’.
The new single sees Hatchie meditate on treating oneself kindly through periods of self-doubt and deprecation, above lush, reverb-heavy instrumentation. In a press release, Hatchie – real name Harriette Pilbeam – said ‘Giving The World Away’ was written about “being gentle with yourself in the throes of depression”.
A colourful, psychedelic lyric video was also released to accompany the song, about which Pilbeam added: “We made a simple lyric video with analogue effects to let the lyrics of the song speak for themselves.”

‘Giving The World Away’, Pilbeam’s second full-length album under the Hatchie moniker, is due for release on April 22 via Secretly Canadian/Ivy League Records, following her 2019 debut album ‘Keepsake’.
“There’s more to me than just writing songs about being in love or being heartbroken — there’s a bigger picture than that,” Pilbeam said of the forthcoming record upon its announcement.
“This album really just feels like the beginning to me and scratching the surface – and even though it’s my third release as Hatchie, I feel like I’m rebooting from scratch.”
