GRAMMY-nominated, Platinum-certified artist Cassadee Pope has released the first in a series of performance videos from her new acoustic album Rise And Shine, released worldwide last month.
Watch the video for ‘Let Me Go’ here, which premiered on CMT yesterday (17/9). “I wanted the video for ‘Let Me Go’ to really capture the essence of the song,” the singer-songwriter said. “It’s emotional and raw and came from a place of wanting freedom.”
Produced by Pope with Todd Lombardo, the album has received wide acclaim, with People describing “an intimate aesthetic that showcases her vocal gifts,” and Forbes noting: “Pope’s singing is marked by its clarity – fitting, as her emotion is exposed.” Cassadee co-wrote every track, collaborating with writers such as Butch Walker and Emily Weisband, with Sam Palladio lending his vocals on ‘California Dreaming’.
Additionally, Cassadee will release a brand new version of the album’s empowering title track ‘Rise And Shine’, remixed by veteran producer and GRAMMY-winner Dave Audé (Kelsea Ballerini, Mark Ronson, Bruno Mars). Following a world exclusive first play from Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2 on October 8th, the single will be released to stream/download everywhere on Friday October 9th – pre-save on Spotify here. On working with Audé for the remix, she said: “The remix really took this song to the next level. I feel like the emotion has been taken up a notch with the thunderous rhythm sounds and the overall anthemic vibe. It’s been really special to see this song take on a whole new life!”
Looking ahead to next year, Cassadee is one of the first artists to have been announced for the forthcoming The Long Road festival from September 10th-12th 2021 – more info and tickets here: https://www.thelongroad.com/.
