Christian Cohle wants to invite you into his world.

An artist with a willingness to connect, the Irish songwriter's work has a transportive impact.

Take new single 'Spinning Heart'. Out now, there's an intimate to the sound that provides a bridge between the studio and your stereo.

Using actual voicemail recordings, the track's raw nature helped achieve “an intimacy which I wanted this release to have.”

The songwriter dips into Irish literature for the song, which touches on a break up, and the need to locate fresh direction for your life.

Christian Cohle says…

"'Spinning Heart's title was inspired directly by one of my favorite Irish author's books, by Donal Ryan, titled 'The Spinning Heart'. I borrowed the title and made it reflect my own predicament at the time during a really difficult breakup I went through, when Covid first hit. I felt like my life was just spinning along, moving forwards but directionless. I was being spun around by the pain, the loss, the confusion, the doubt caused by having to end what was a really beautiful relationship."

An intoxicating piece of songwriting, 'Spinning Heart' comes equipped with some deft, cinematic visuals, building on the song's central narrative.
