New album, ‘The Otherside,’ arrives Oct. 30 via Triple Tigers/RCA Records
Ahead of the release of her anticipated sophomore album, “The Otherside,” Grammy-nominated artist Cam shares a brand-new song, "Forgetting You," via Triple Tigers/RCA Records.
"Forgetting You" is available HERE.
"Forgetting You" was co-written with Lori McKenna (Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town), Mitchell Rowland (Harry Styles) and Tyler Johnson (Harry Styles, Sam Smith) and produced by Johnson and Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Bruno Mars). Fronted by Cam's soulful vocals, the song depicts a heart-wrenching story about being unable to move on from someone you used to love.
"At the end of the day, in the stillness of the hotel room, thoughts of that person from your past sneak in," Cam said. "The one you thought you were over. You torture yourself, measuring the real people in your life against the idea of them."
Cam also released a special live performance video of "Forgetting You" filmed at the Ryman Auditorium back in August during her livestream concert. Watch it HERE.
Last week, Cam announced a very special album release livestream show to celebrate the arrival of “The Otherside” on the day of its release (Oct. 30) at the world-famous Bluebird Cafe. The show will be an intimate first telling of the stories and music behind “The Otherside.” Tickets for the show are available HERE.
To date, Cam has shared five songs from “The Otherside,” which have received critical acclaim from the likes of The New York Times, Billboard, NPR, PASTE and E!, who declared Cam "the country queen." "Forgetting You" was preceded by the bouncy and bright "Classic"; the heartfelt "Redwood Tree"; the sensual love song " Till There's Nothing Left"; and the bold and empowering, "Diane."
“The Otherside” is available for preorder HERE.
In 2015, Cam took the world of country music by storm with her critically acclaimed full-length debut, “Untamed.” The record not only bowed in the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200 and registered at No. 2 on the top country albums chart, but it also yielded her double-Platinum Grammy, CMA and ACM-nominated smash single, "Burning House," which remains the bestselling country song by a female solo artist since its release in 2015.
Since then, Cam has continued to thrive as both a songwriter and musician. She lent her writing voice to Miley Cyrus' 2015 album, “Bangerz,” and co-wrote "Palace" with Sam Smith for his 2017 album, “The Thrill of It All” (the song also became the soundtrack for an Apple commercial). She broke boundaries with her bold and empowering 2017 lead single, "Diane," and further showcased her range when she teamed up with Diplo for the genre-bending Thomas Wesley 2019 debut single, "So Long."
Cam has consistently sold-out shows across the globe, cementing her status as an international powerhouse on stage. She performed alongside Smith for four sold-out shows at the O2 Arena in London and joined him on his 2018 North American tour; opened for Harry Styles at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville; delivered standout festivals sets including the coveted sunset slot at Stagecoach in 2019; and headlined top venues across Europe and Australia.
