The band premiered the song over at Rookie Magazine, and Rena Lovelis says the track is all about finding comfort with and knowing that it’s okay to be yourself.
“Whenever we play this live, I give my spiel before the song. I say, 'We all feel different sometimes, we all feel a little out of places, a little messed up, and honestly it’s okay and it only makes you human. There’s nothing wrong with being human. That’s the most honest and vulnerable part of you, and it becomes more authentic and more true to who you are a person,'” Lovelis explains.
“I say that at shows because it’s like a precursor to what the song is about, and I think it resonates with a lot of people, with me, and with the band. It’s OK to be yourself, to have your own opinions, and voice. You should never apologize for that.”
Their new album, from the outside, will be released June 16 on Hi or Hey Records/Capitol/Caroline.Check out the track list below!
Hey Violet’s forthcoming album is one of AP's most anticipated for 2017, and vocalist Rena Lovelis says their sound has transformed through their first and second EPs, I Can Feel It and Brand New Moves, and it’ll be noticeable on their new record.
“Our sound has definitely evolved and transformed over the years,” Lovelis explains. “It's moving to a place where we're more capable of experimenting with new sounds and toying with synths. You can hear this already when you compare our first and second EPs, and this will definitely be clear when the album is ready.”
