When your body is overworked, sit and rest. When emotions spin your head around, relax your mind. The London-based R&B musician known simply as Charles makes it easy with his new single.

Deep bass licks the edges of 'Relax Your Mind', and singular guitar slides foster an emotive environment for Charles’ falsetto to take hold. He sings about wanting to step back from his daily hardships, detailing what keeps him up at night. Pressures from society weigh on him in a myriad of ways, seeming almost cyclical in the case of the refrain: “I’m so tired of feeling weak when I know I’m strong ‘cuz I can’t forget it.” Empowerment comes with its own set of anxieties, and Charles is taking them one at a time.
