Charlie Law’s new single ‘My Black Dog’

Charlie Law has just released his new single ‘My Black Dog’…

Here’s what Charlie has to say about it:

“I’ve been unsure of how to put this song out, as it’s mental health awareness week I thought I’d just share my story about why I wrote it.

Despite my upbeat, often comical personality, I wrote ‘My Black Dog’ from a really miserable place. After moving back home from uni I was diagnosed with mild depression, my life felt empty and I was very argumentative at home.

But it is a song of hope. I wrote it one night sitting at a piano, feeling very depressed. I stumbled upon a hopeful melody and chord sequence, which became ‘My Black Dog’. It brought out the hope in me, and the feeling that if I just carried on, one day life would feel worth living again. The ‘Black Dog’ was a metaphor for my depression.

I clung onto that hope and it sparked a change in me le viagra france. I exercised lots, improved my diet and built good relationships with decent people. Slowly I started to feel better.

Two years on from writing ‘My Black Dog’ I am so grateful for every day. I still feel the everyday highs and lows we all feel, but they come and go quickly.

I wanted to share my experience as I know lots of people who have been affected by a similar thing. I hope you know that you are not alone feeling like this.”
