As y’all know, I’ve been working on songs for my next full length album – I didn’t want to keep you waiting so long for another taste so I’m excited to announce that the next track from the record, a cover of Nancy Sinatra’s “Bang Bang,” will be released July 22!
Even better: my awesome friend Rachel of Adobe & Teardrops is going to premiere it exclusively on July 21!
This track is a collaboration with Ryan Peel, an incredible drummer and songwriter who came up with the concept with Alex Kramer. He reached out to me a couple of years ago because he thought my voice would be perfect for this mash-up of sorts they had done, mixing “Bang Bang” with a sort of Fugees’ “Killing Me Softly”-esque drum beat. One thing led to another and we never got around to recording it – but when I started work on this new record and felt things shifting toward soul, I knew exactly the song I wanted in the mix. I called Ryan and was able to get him into the studio to track the drums live. (It sounds like it’s looped – but it’s all Ryan playing live. He is insanely talented y’all!)
I can’t wait for y’all to hear this song – stay tuned for the premiere July 21 and get your download July 22!
