Available to pre-order today; new album track 'Perfect For You'
Multiplatinum, award-winning pop star Rachel Platten has announced the release of her brand-new album, "Waves," available everywhere Friday, Oct. 27, via Columbia Records. Fans can re-order the album today and receive Platten's new song, "Perfect For You," which Entertainment Weekly excitedly called a "dance-able tell-off" and "irresistible jam."
"I loved making this album, I've never felt so free creatively," Platten said. "I wrote all of these songs without getting in the way, and I just let whatever needed to come through me just come. I worked out a lot of heavy stuff on some of the songs, and cried on my piano at 3 a.m. some nights, but I also woke up some days and jumped into the ocean and felt amazing and just wanted to write songs I could dance to. This album is raw and it's emotional, but it's also fun and sweet and it's real. It's honestly just all of me and I am so damn proud of it."
Platten spent the past year writing and recording "Waves" in Los Angeles, working with top songwriters and producers, including Ryan Tedder, Stargate, Jason Evigan, Ian Kirkpatrick, Nate Cyphert, Mitch Allan and Jon Levine. The majority of the album was recorded at the famed Village Studios in Los Angeles, and all 13 tracks were co-written by Platten.
"Perfect For You," a brightly honest and hopeful track Platten wrote about every day insecurities she faces, follows the release of single "Broken Glass," which TIME raved is "another sharply produced pop jam," and USA Today hailed as "a shimmering dance track." The music video for "Broken Glass" was directed by Allie Avital and features champion female bicyclists from around the globe. Watch HERE.
"Waves" follows the success of "Fight Song," a song that touched millions of people around the world with its empowering and resilient message of never giving up. "Fight Song" is certified three-times platinum and has gone on to sell more than 4 million downloads worldwide. The single topped countless radio and iTunes charts around the globe before being succeeded by Platten's platinum-certified hit, "Stand by You." Her gold-certified, major label debut album, "Wildfire," was released by Columbia Records in 2016.
The singer has won several awards, including the 2016 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Musical Performance in a Talk Show/Morning Program for her television debut performance of "Fight Song" on "Good Morning America."
