METTE Releases New Song “FOR THE PEOPLE”
Los Angeles-based dancer and singer-songwriter Mette Towley, aka METTE will release her debut EP “METTENARRATIVE” on September 22, 2023.
The EP is her first project under her new label Since '93 and RCA US.
The EP comprises 7-track, produced by Barney Lister, DAMEDAME* and Jonny Lattimer.
METTE told VOGUE about the EP, “Music has always been my first love. Anything that I've done artistically has always been to get closer and closer and more devoted to that love. I really wanted to be an artist growing up, but dance was where I felt most confident in my abilities. Before, I would always just say, 'Yeah, I'm a dancer'. Even when I started making this EP back in 2019, I didn't tell most of the people I knew, my friends and collaborators. It just still felt so far away. Now, I feel like I can truly claim that for myself.”
From the EP, she unveiled a new song “FOR THE PEOPLE” on September 18, 2023.
The song is the follow-up to “VAN GOGH”, which was released last month.
The track was written by Mette Towley, Barbara Boko-Hyouyhat, and Edith Nelson. Produced by DAMEDAME*.
METTE shared on social media, “The day FOR THE PEOPLE was born... this was the first song I made with DAMEDAME*. I teased a bit of it yesterday and SERIOUSLY honestly can’t wait to drop this one.”
METTE announced that she had signed to Since '93 and RCA US when she released her previous song “VAN GOGH” last month.
Co-President of RCA UK and Since '93, Glyn Aikins said, “We are delighted to welcome METTE to the Since '93 family alongside RCA US. A multi-hyphenate artist and quadruple threat, METTE's music showcases the depths of her unique artistry. A force to be reckoned with, METTE is an all round entertainer and is destined to become a global superstar - watch out!”
COO of RCA Records, John Fleckenstein said, “METTE is a truly dynamic creative force. music, film, dance, fashion… and with something real to say. We couldn't be prouder to team up with our UK team at Since 93/Sony UK - and to have the opportunity to bring the world to the incredible talent that is METTE.”
METTE said of the previous song, “VAN GOGH is a message in a bottle to the many muse(s) that live inside of me - inside all of us, in fact. I'm continually drawing inspiration from my internal and external worlds, and I remain awed by the beauty of dance. I love making music I can dance to, and as the opening lyric to VAN GOGH exemplifies, 'I'm motivated by the way you move...'”
