Rising Artist Chloé Caillet Releases Debut Single 'Love Ain't Over', Inspired By 'The Need To Never Give Up On Love'
Rising artist Chloé Caillet dropped her debut single "Love Ain't Over" earlier this month.
The track features vocals from London-based artist Poté and is a blend of disco, electronic, house and funk. The highly-anticipated song was released on Thursday, November 11, via Caillet's own label XCESS RECORDS.
The DJ wrote the song after a breakup to remind herself not to give up on love.
"I needed to express a feeling of moving forward and pushing through," the producer said in a press release. "I decided to ask my friend Sylvern (Poté) to record the vocals. We recorded these in my room and then the song took form. 'Love Ain't Over' represents the need to never give up on Love and to keep going as it will come."
The song follows Caillet's recent remix of "Chemical" by Beck. The artist even landed gigs at the likes of Glastonbury, Pacha and Ushuaïa.
The track's music video was directed by Ana Sting and captured Caillet's bold vision.
"The first time that I heard the song it gave me a lot of happiness and it made me want to dance. I love when music makes me feel that. It also impressed me and I thought Chloé was a very talented artist," Sting said.
"I also loved Poté’s voice; it sounded like a soul record from the 60’s. I decided to represent different people and fun characters dancing to the song. As the song is universal and everyone is looking for love I wanted to portray that. I also wanted to show Chloé’s fun and silly side," the photographer added.
The musician grew up between cultural meccas New York, Paris and the U.K. Caillet's musical journey began at the tender age of seven when she began learning piano before she joined bands when she was 14 where she played guitar and bass. As she is drawn to sounds with "a strong groove, bass and vocals", her early inspiration was derived from the sounds of disco and funk which echoed around her family home.
She previously worked as a major label A&R before becoming a key player in the NYC nightlife scene where she organized private events and booked DJs for club nights "I wanted to utilise my industry knowledge," she said in the press release. "So I bought myself a pair of CDJs and taught myself how to mix."
