17-year-old singer-songwriter Casey Bishop has released her new single, “Don’t Talk!” today. Taken from her upcoming self-titled debut EP, the track was co-written with Willow Smith and follows previously released single, “Bad Dream”. Listen to the energetic track now below.
The six-song EP, out September 28th via 19 Recordings/BMG was produced by Chris Greatti (Yungblud, Poppy). It effortlessly fuses punk energy and skyscraping rock ambition with soaring alt-pop melodies from the Florida-born singer, who delivers a full range of emotions with her vulnerable and relatable lyrics.
“I was in the session talking about how you can meet a guy who’s sooo good looking but they just constantly say the wrong things,” Casey shares on her writing session with Chris Greatti, Rachel West, Paris Carney, and Willow Smith. “We were joking and throwing out examples of those moments when out of the blue, Willow busts out with the words ‘don’t talk’ in that insane melody riff that became the main punch of the record. It was perfect and set the tone for the song. The final version of this recording is just so fun. We wanted a happy, upbeat, fun song and that’s exactly what ‘Don’t Talk!’ is.”
