- Katelyn Tarver Premieres New Song “Labels”
- American singer-actress Katelyn Tarver unveiled a new song “Labels” with accompanying music video, directed by Nathan Presley.
The video was premiered exclusively on Billboard. The track is the contemporary R&B-flavored pop sound.
The song will appear on her upcoming third EP "Kool Aid", which is expected to be released later this year.
The EP was preceded by two singles"LY4L" and "Never Fade".
Katelyn Tarver told Billboard about the video;
"I wanted it to feel empowering for people and I was trying to figure out how to share what it meant to me but in a way anyone else can insert their own story into it."
We just sent out a notice on these casting websites and we picked these people and they were awesome. They each kind of made the song their own. I just loved the simplicity of it, and getting to put other people in the video was really fun for me. I thought it sent a strong message that was powerful, and what I wanted to say with the song."
- She said of the EP "Kool Aid";
"That was a lot of songs I had in my pocket for a while, and I was assigned to this label that wasn’t sure what the release plan was, so they were sitting there a little longer than I wanted. They still meant a lot to me, but it's kind of exiting this time around to have songs I feel are way more recent and really close to the moment I wrote them which is cool.
It's an interesting time in the world for these songs to come out and I was definitely affected by seeing people used their voices and not be afraid or scared of sharing their point of view. I was really inspired by that and kind of realized I hadn't been doing that as much as I could be doing with my music and with my art."
