Dark alt-pop mistress Chandler Leighton is finally releasing her highly awaited debut album, “Proof You Weren’t The Only One,” into the wild, alongside a powerful music video for the featured single “Got What I Wanted.” 

Chandler Leighton delivers her most important project to date, an emotionally charged album showing herself growing as a person and sharing her deepest and personal stories. “Proof You Weren’t The Only One” marks a significant milestone in her career, truly showcasing what she’s capable of. The collection of songs is a fusion of dark alt-pop, alternative rock, and electro influences. Her signature vocals take center stage on every track, delivering introspective lyrics that will touch the very core of your soul. 

Through each track, she sheds light on her journey of shedding out of who she’s been and embracing the future. However, she stresses that she doesn’t completely let go of her past, acknowledging that those parts will always be a part of her. 

The first three tracks, “Sick,” “MONSTER,” and “Extra Extra” all contain little hidden patterns and tell an intertwined story. In terms of melody, all three songs are a delight to the senses, offering a sublime mix of pop and rock sounds, amazing lyrical work, and Leighton‘s voice which is simply impossible to resist. Meanwhile, “NO I DONT,” serves as a release valve for Leighton’s unbridled anger, touching on themes of divorce, depression, and the struggles of being in the music industry. 

Reflecting the dark into the light is Chandler Leighton’s main motif with this album. This is highlighted in the featured single “Got What I Wanted“, which serves as a perfect representation of this theme. We get a powerful song with one of the most deeply profound lyrics you will ever hear, Leighton conveys her emotions and desires to the fullest extent possible, leaving us in awe. The heartbreaking single is paired alongside a musical video, where we get behind the scenes in the production, giving us a look at the creative process behind everything. We get to see Leighton’s journey as she navigates through her own emotions, as she remembers her own theater roots. Using her own words, “It’s sad, it’s raw, and it’s honest.” Something truly captivating and special that will definitely touch the heart of anyone who listens/watches.

“I hope this album stands as proof that you don’t have to decide on one version of yourself. What makes us beautiful is how versatile we can be and how many parts make us whole. I wanted this body of work to know no boundaries, which is why I juxtapose the two halves – dark and light. We often hide and mask the dark parts – there’s anger that lies beneath, and sadness that lies so deep into our bones they feel like they’re shattering when we begin to heal them. I will never surrender my art to fit into a box, and I hope my listeners don’t either. So, that is what this album is. It’s all of me. All the parts. Well, 11 songs worth. All for you. Listen in order.” – Chandler Leighton
