Grammy Award-nominated, Platinum-selling artist and songwriter Sophie B. Hawkins has released her newest single, “Better Off Without You.” Press here to listen.
A press release stated, “ ‘Better Off Without You’ sees the trailblazing artist taking her power back, reflecting on her revolutionary career while also embarking on a new creative chapter of independence and positivity. Moody yet soaring, the song is an exploration of betrayal and the transformative triumph of radical self-love, with an anthemic chorus of “I’m better off without you/I’m really doing fine/My whole life was about you/and now I’m finding mine.”
‘Sophie encourages listeners to sing it loud and proud for their exes next month as an anti-Valentine’s Day anthem.”
She said, “This song is cathartic and so true: Betrayal and grief can wake you up to stop giving your power away and start fighting for yourself, your life. It’s not about the other person, it’s about you.”
"Better Off Without You” follows the single that kicked off this new era for the artist, “Love Yourself,” a soul-stirring piece of symphonic pop about confidence and the way we talk about ourselves, reframing our inner dialogue to change patterns and bring healing.
Sophie will be rolling out more new music soon, culminating in an album this spring. It’s an exciting new creative chapter for the artist whose indelible hit songs such as “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” and “As I Lay Me Down” have been featured in cultural touchstone TV shows and films (“Stranger Things” to “Beverly Hills, 90210,” “Dawson’s Creek” and “The L Word”), and “who has always been ahead of her time with her steadfast activism supporting such causes as environmental protection, animal rights and LGBTQ equality; using her songwriting and platform for positive change with the forward-thinking, pioneering outlook she has championed all along.
“Sophie’s ever-evolving career has also included releasing six widely beloved albums, breaking chart records with her smash hit, four worldwide singles from ‘Whaler,’ and a starring role as Janis Joplin in the critically acclaimed musical ‘Room105.’
“A dynamic creative force, Sophie has always been fully involved in every aspect of the production of her records herself, from background vocals and playing her own instruments as a multi-instrumentalist, to engineering and production of her albums. She has proved to be an enduring artist with a fierce commitment to artistic integrity, while both constantly evolving and remaining steadfastly true to her own authentic history and experience which connects her to her fans at the very deepest levels.”
