FLETCHER shares, “Throughout my life, I’ve sought the antidote in various places: relationships, touring, performing, connecting with fans, spiritual exploration, and introspection. Creating this album was a journey of self-discovery, leading me to realize that love is the true antidote. From my earliest work to my most recent, love has been my constant inspiration. This album represents a deeper exploration of love from numerous perspectives, revealing its limitless aspects.”

“In Search Of The Antidote” was produced in collaboration with GRAMMY® winner Jennifer Decilveo and features contributions from industry talents like Aldae, Jon Bellion, Julia Michaels, Monsters & Strangerz, and Michael Pollack. The album has garnered acclaim for its emotional depth, with Rolling Stone praising it for its raw emotion and highlighting FLETCHER’s versatility in the pop genre.

The album features the single “Pretending,” which expresses a complex mix of longing, frustration, and acceptance. Drawing inspiration from early 2000s pop rock, the track showcases FLETCHER’s powerful vocals against dynamic guitar riffs, capturing the pain of concealing one’s feelings. FLETCHER comments on the inspiration behind the song, relating it to the profound connections and possibilities that can arise from a simple encounter, embodying the constant wonder about potential future relationships.
