Casterton College pupil, Chloe Lorentzen, releases lockdown-inspired song
A 15-year-old singer has released the first song in a collection she is compiling throughout the year.
Chloe Lorentzen, pupil at Casterton College, will be releasing songs on the last day of each month throughout 2021, which will make up her album ‘Love, Life and Lies’.
The first song, Sorry, was released on January 31 and last week was selected as BBC Radio Leicester’s Track of the Week.
Chloe said: “Sorry is about a lockdown break up. It was a sad breakup as they never got to say sorry to each other, that’s why it’s called that.”
Chloe, with help from her dad Lee, filmed a music video with her friends to accompany the song, which has been viewed nearly 1,000 times on YouTube.
She said: “I’m going to have all the same friends in the videos and any I pick up on the way.
“They are going to be in all of them that don’t include just me so for the whole journey we can see how we’ve grown together and how much we’ve learnt.
“I don’t think anybody has done it before.”
While lockdown has given Chloe more spare time to write songs, co-coordinating a music video in the pandemic proved to be a challenge.
She said: “It was difficult but we managed to find a time where we wouldn’t get in trouble for breaking the rules.
“We had to plan it out but the weather wasn’t on our side very often.”
Lee added: “It forces you to be more creative.”
Sorry can be listened to on all streaming services.
