Katelyn Tarver Releases New Song “Japanese Cafe”
Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Katelyn Tarver will her sophomore album “Quitter” on February 9, 2024 via Nettwerk.
From the album, she released the eighth single called “Japanese Cafe” on December 29, 2023.
The track is inspired by her experience of promotional tour in Japan when she was 16.
It was written by Annika Bennett, Jonny Shorr, Katelyn Tarver. Produced by Jonny Shorr.
Katelyn Tarver said of the song, “When I was a teenager, I had an album I was promoting, and it ended up taking me overseas to Japan to promote it over there. I performed at a bunch of gigs, but one in particular was at a maid cafe where they requested I wear a French maid outfit for the performance. The audience watched while sitting in school desks and the sound system was a boombox with a microphone held up to the speaker. It's become one of those stories I tell at parties about my weird life as a teenage wannabe popstar, and now it's the inspiration behind my newest song Japanese Cafe that's out today. I used to be embarrassed about this time in my life, but writing this song helped me find a new appreciation for the girl in this picture.”
- The new album comprises a 11-track and she collaborated with the likes of co-writer Delacey, Grammy-nominated songwriter/producer Scott Effman, and producer Chad Copelin.
It is her first body of work in three years since the 2021 debut album “Subject to Change”.
Katelyn Tarver told EUPHORIA. Magazine about the album, “It's a lot of songs about life and meaning and value and self-worth and asking a lot of big questions. Very much a snapshot of a time in my life when I was trying to make sense of things, and I just funneled it all into the music.”
She added, “Ultimately it's a collection of music I'm super proud of. And hopefully, people can find some comfort and solidarity in the lyrics if they're feeling alone. If not? It was all for nothing. I'm kidding... kind of.”
