Little Hurt Releases New Track “Chelsea’s Coming Over”
“’Chelsea’s Coming Over’ is sort of about constantly looking for love but feeling like you’re not entirely ready for it when it arrives,” states Dieden about the track. “I can remember times in my life when I’d meet someone so incredible- so insanely special- and I’d be sitting there on the couch thinking about myself and my life like ‘I do not even deserve this.’ Which isn’t true. This song is about realizing you deserve to be loved and to love. It’s about feeling GOOD about yourself despite all the reasons your mind will create to make you feel otherwise. This is a love song to yourself. My favorite thing about ‘Chelsea’s Coming Over’ is that I got to write it with my best friends and I’ll never forget how much fun we had doing it.”
