Fresh off her tour, the 25-year-old singer and songwriter has given us another song we can cry in the car to.
Houston, we have Men on the Moon? No wait, it’s just Chelsea Cutler’s latest single. Cutler released her newest track, “Men on the Moon” on November 11, 2022, amidst the end of her North American tour. The song has already acquired over one million streams, and is only gaining traction. The singer and songwriter originally from Connecticut is no stranger to the music industry and has had multiple hits, such as, “Your Shirt”, “You Were Good to Me”, and “Crazier Things” as well as a debut album that hit number 23 on the Billboard chart in 2020. Her soulful voice and emotional lyrics are what truly resonate with those who enjoy her music and her latest release is no different.
“Men on the Moon'' is a touching ballad about how, despite all of humanity's greatest feats, people still struggle to form emotional connections with one another. Cutler quickly took to her Instagram story to explain the true meaning behind her song. She states, “Basically I wrote this song when I felt like I was really struggling to connect with somebody I love”. Heart wrenching, right? She also goes on to say, “it seemed crazy to me that we as a human race have accomplished so much and have learned so much about our world, but yet we as people still struggle to connect and understand each other on a fundamental level. We literally understand the world enough to put humans on the moon, but we can’t work out simple conflict and miscommunications”. Her single does an incredible job at capturing the feeling of longing to connect with someone, but not knowing how to go about the relationship. Cutler has been receiving nothing but positive reviews and praise from her fans who are eager to see what new projects she has in the works.
If you have a hard time expressing your emotions, or ever find yourself struggling to communicate your thoughts and feelings to someone, do yourself a favor and give “Men on the Moon” a listen. All three minutes and forty seconds are guaranteed to bring on the waterworks. BRB, time to get in my car and blast this song.
