This song marks the last single that Chloe will be releasing before she releases the album later this year.
Where the wild people go is a song that celebrates the unpredictable adventure that is life, with all its ups and downs, the changes we grow from, and the silver lining on the horizon. It is a tribute to trust and acceptance of the journey ahead; at times of uncertainty, you can always find a way back to the centre, where the wild person in you will go.
With dreamy vocals and driving tribal rhythms, I hope this song makes you want to run, to dance and twirl at the top of a snowy mountain. The eclectic folk style that combines musical genres and cultures brings together sensitivity and strength with a catchy melody fused with hope.
The song itself has undergone many changes from the original version played on acoustic guitar. It is one of the songs from the album that has changed the most and I am really happy with the outcome.
My sister and I worked hard on a music video to capture the magical energy of this song, with choreography in snowy landscapes at the centre of the imagery. Filmed in the Luberon region of the south of France, the video celebrates all wild things and the beauty of human bodies in a natural landscape.

The song itself changed a lot from its original form, making it one of my favorite songs from the album, because it is so different to what I am used to writing.
