Hot on the heels of her latest release ‘New York‘, Cyn is back with a new single ‘Uh Oh‘ From Promising Young Woman Soundtrack.
Cyn worked closely with the film’s director, Emerald Fennell, and song co-writers Matias Mora and Mia Minichiello to create the music needed for a particular scene in the movie. Earlier this year, she performed “Uh Oh” live for the first time at the 2020 Sundance ASCAP Music Café.
Cyn reveals to Refinery29 (who premiered the song), “Working with Emerald was seamless. She sent me an email with lyric ideas and had a very clear idea of how the song should relate to the movie. The lyric ‘if it happened to you, what would you do?’ was taken directly from Emerald’s notes. Thank goodness she had such a confident idea of how the song should feel – that always helps!” In addition to her role as the film’s director, Fennell also served as Executive Soundtrack Producer, teaming up with music supervisor Sue Jacobs and Capitol Records.
The undeniably infectious “Drinks,” has amassed over 20 million global streams since its release earlier this year. Chock-full of her trademark sassy, unfiltered lyricism, buoyed by an infectious hook and moody production by collaborators, Ryan Daly and JP Clarke, “Drinks” officially entered the Top 40 at Pop Radio, peaking at an impressive No. 26 with adds from some of the country’s most popular radio stations including Z100, WKSC, B96, and KISS Chicago to name a few.
Both “Uh Oh” and “Drinks” can be heard when Sundance hit, Promising Young Woman is released in theaters on Christmas Day, December 25th 2020 via Focus Features. View the trailer, which features Anthony Willis’ orchestral arrangement of “Toxic,”HERE.
The release of “Uh Oh” follows Cyn’s latest single, a love letter to the city that never sleeps, “New York,” out now via Unsub Records. Written by Cyn and British award-winning singer-songwriter-producer Jack Garratt, “New York” is a beautiful ode to the city and to those who dream. Speaking about the new song, Cyn reveals, “With my new song New York, I hope to inspire feelings of adventure and possibility, and even though times are uncertain, I aim to remind people that looking toward the future with optimism is still worth it,” she explains. “New York is a love song with an undeniable thread of possibility running through it, and I am so thrilled to share it with the world.”
