Songwriting spitfire RaeLynn is back with a brand new single and record deal. Announced early Friday morning (11/8), the Texas native is the second artist to join Florida Georgia Line’s newly-formed label, Round Here Records.
“Signing to Round Here Records was an easy decision and I knew in my heart this was the right home for my music,” says RaeLynn in a press release. “I’ve known Tyler and BK for many years, and have always admired their electricity together as a team and as strong businessmen. They bring such incredible experience and knowledge of this business. To have artists like them – who are innovative and slaying the game at the helm of the label – adds something so unique and powerful. And alongside the AWAL team, this new platform gives me the support, and also the freedom, to build my brand in a unique way that we all envision. Can’t wait for this new chapter to begin!”
The deal will work in conjuction with AWAL, Kobalt’s recording company. The company will offer RaeLynn an array of services from marketing to A&R, radio, distribution and much more.
In celebration her new recording deal, RaeLynn is offering up the first single called “Bra Off.” Co-written with Emily Weisband and Josh Kerr, the sassy song has her comparing the breakup with an ex to taking her bra off at the end of the day. “Breaking up with you was like taking my bra off / feeling free and loose like this T-shirt I got on,” she sings.
“As a girl, this is what I want to hear. I grew up in a small town of Baytown, Texas. And I’ve always said, ‘If it ain’t Baytown, I don’t want to cut it.’ It has to have that Baytown flavor. I grew up a church kid, but I like to cuss, too. And I want all those flavors in the music because that is me, and it’s my fans, too,” she shares.
The single is just the first taste of new music from RaeLynn, with more expected to drop in early 2020. Listen to “Bra Off” above!
