WHO ANNOUNCES NEW EP BETTY PT. 1
AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE JUNE 15
NEW TRACK "TASTE" AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE NOW
Pop singer-songwriter BETTY WHO continues to embrace
a new chapter of her career with the announcement of her highly-anticipated
independent EP Betty Pt. 1, out June 15 - the
EP is the first in a series of her conceptual new music rollout.
A second EP will be released in the fall and a full-length album
"This will be my first EP in five years so there is definitely
an air of returning to my humble beginnings, but this EP mostly
feels like a re-introduction, not just to my fans but in a lot
of ways for myself. A lot has changed in a year for me so I
felt like it was time to start fresh and see what could come
out," Betty explains. "Every song on this EP is so different
from the last - they each have their own very distinctive story
to tell, and each represent a part of my personality that I
don't think I've sufficiently explored creatively. For the first
time in a long time, I'm not thinking about how each song flows
together, I'm not worried about what people will think... I
just wanted to push myself and find the songs and sounds that
I've always wanted to put out but never had the guts to."
of its imminent June 15 release, Betty debuts the new track
"Taste" , giving eager fans a preview of what to expect from
the EP. The song - available everywhere NOW
via AWAL Recordings- is a sultry, soon-to-be song of the summer
that explores the thrill of an insatiable craving. "Taste" was
penned by Betty, JHart, Viljar Losnegård, Sivert Hjeltnes Hagtvet
& Pretty Sister, who also produced the track. The song follows
the March release of "Look Back," an energetic, dancehall-tinged
anthem that arrived in the midst of her recent headline tour.
Both "Look Back" and "Ignore Me," released in January, will
be on the EP along with additional new tracks.
Of the song, Betty says: "I've been wanting to put out a song
like Taste for a while. It's sexy, a little rock and roll with
just a touch of vampire fetish. What more could a girl need?"
Betty's vocals are also currently featured on Lemaitre's newest
track "Rocket Girl," which was deemed the official global theme
song for X Games Norway, happening now in Oslo. TIME
hailed the track "a little bit Daft Punk, a little bit Justice,
and a little bit party pop" and a "good way to kick off a playlist
just as summer begins to come into full view."
Next up, she will head out across the pond for a European/UK
tour immediately before Betty Pt. 1's release
and then continue throughout the U.S. with performances at festivals
like Electric Forest & Firefly Music Festival.
