The new song “Letter To A Girl” was written as a letter to her younger self and inspired by the young women she met while on tour with Why Don’t We. Along with pulling inspiration from what she wishes she could tell her younger self, Brynn was heavily influenced by her live performances. The track, which is filled with live-sounding guitars, drums, pianos, and synths is available now via DSPs and streaming services. “Letter To A Girl” is accompanied by a striking visual, streaming now via YouTube.
Brynn Elliott shares, “The lyrics are all the things I wish I had told myself when I was younger in those moments of scrutinizing myself in the mirror, going through heartache and generally just trying to make sense of this crazy world. One of the main themes of the song is beauty and how the true essence of beauty is often not found in the places where our culture tells us that beauty is found. Rather, the very essence of beauty is found in simply being human. Beautiful is created in your mind.”
The new single follows “Tell Me I’m Pretty,” an empowering anthem that pulls from stories of superficiality- a concept that dates back in history, from corsets to Instagram filters. “Tell Me I’m Pretty” is now receiving radio play across the country and has reached the Top 25 of Hot AC radio.
Brynn wrote the song for women and wanted to amplify the female empowerment narrative by enlisting the help of Icona Pop for a recent remix. “Tell Me I’m Pretty (Icona Pop Remix)” is streaming now via DSPs alongside a captivating video animated by Katia Temkin, streaming now via YouTube.
Her latest releases “Tell Me I’m Pretty” and “Letter To A Girl” herald Elliott’s breathtaking new EP, CAN I BE REAL?, due to arrive later this year. Recorded in Los Angeles and produced in large part by songwriting/production duo The Monarch (Kelly Clarkson, Nicki Minaj), CAN I BE REAL? sees Elliott expanding on the thoughtful yet emotionally potent lyricism of her 2018 debut EP, TIME OF OUR LIVES.
