| After unveiling her previous single ‘Beautiful Mess’ last July, which garnered more than 1.6 million views on Youtube/VEVO, Birmingham born, LA-based frontwoman Harlea has quickly become one of the hottest new names around. And with her other releases including the tracks ‘You Don’t Get It’ and ‘Miss Me’ gathering praise from the likes of NME, The Guardian, CLASH and BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart, she has now returned with her latest offering ‘99’. |
Channeling her haunting/honest style, the singer-songwriter looks to make this latest release her most impassioned yet. With its dark and atmospheric production coming from American star producers Rock Mafia, who have sold over 50 million records worldwide with artist like Eminem, Gwen Stefani, Green Day, Justin Bieber, & Ellie Goulding, ʼ99ʼ sees her stepping into a lane all her own.
Harlea adds “When Rock Mafia played me ʼ99ʼ, I knew I had to have it. It was hypnotizing and intense. To me ʼ99ʼ is about unbridled obsession. Complete intoxication of a passion at any cost. A relentless burning desire to be with someone no matter the consequences. A sexual energy that is both all consuming and overwhelming. Captivating and freeing at the same time. Obsessive. The result is to live in the moment with reckless abandon.”
Unprecedented for an independent artist, all of Harleaʼs previous releases ʻBeautiful Messʼ, ʻMiss Meʼ, and ʻYou Donʼt Get Itʼ have all been featured on Spotifyʼs ʻNew Music Fridayʼ playlist which contributed to sold out shows with BBC Introducing and at LA’s Hotel Cafe. With the release of ʼ99ʼ, itʼs safe to say expectations are high – of which Harlea is more than ready.
Available 24th May at iTunes and across all digital service providers.
