After much anticipation, Cam is FINALLY giving us a tease of her upcoming music!
The multi-award nominated songstress just released “Diane,” the first single off her 2018 sophomore album, on Friday (October 27).
Inspired by the storyline of Dolly Parton‘s classic “Jolene,” the driving, tempo-rich track delivers a sonically refreshing tale of love and regret and commiseration. The song was co-written by Cam, Jeff Bhasker, and Tyler Johnson, the team behind the most-downloaded song by a female country artist released since 2015-Cam’s Platinum-certified #1 smash, “Burning House.”
About the song, Cam shares, “‘Diane’ is my response to Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene.’ It’s the apology so many spouses deserve, but never get. The other woman is coming forward to break the news to the wife about an affair, respecting her enough to have that hard conversation, once she realized he was married. Because everyone should be able to decide their own path in life, based on the truth. Women especially should do this for each other, since our self-worth can still be so wrapped up in our partners. And in true country fashion, I’ve set the whole raw story to upbeat music, so you can dance while you process it all.”
Fans will be able to hear “Diane” live along with other songs during a 30-minute Facebook Livestream event beginning at 11AM CT on Tuesday (October 31). For those who can’t make the livestream, Cam will perform “Diane” on her upcoming Best Coast Tour, which will hit nine cities on the west coast beginning November 28th.
