Cassadee Pope, shares her brand new single ‘Almost There.’ Co-written by Cassadee, Nick Furlong (blink-182, 5 Seconds of Summer, Papa Roach) and Christina Galligan (Gnash, Aespa) and produced by Furlong, ‘Almost There’ shows a different side of Cassadee that she’s never explored before with her songwriting. The track is a bold and sensual song that encapsulates feeling comfortable in your own body and the thrill of delving into new experiences with a partner you care deeply about.
Speaking on the track, Cassadee shares, “I think a lot of us are taught from an early age that indulging our desires is shameful and not ladylike. It was only when I started to shed that shame and embrace my sensual nature that I began feeling like myself. For this song, I wanted to let people see a side of me they haven’t seen before and validate them in their own desires.”
Today, Cassadee also shares the accompanying music video for the track. Directed by Ed Pryor (Dierks Bentley, Mickey Guyton, The War and Treaty), the low-lit, in-the-mood music video plays off the sensual themes of the song itself. Earlier this year, Cassadee made her triumphant return to pop-punk with her single, ‘People That I Love Leave.’ Having started her career as the frontwoman of beloved, pop-punk band, Hey Monday, ‘People That I Love Leave’ marked a return to form for Cassadee.
Over the last 15 years, Cassadee Pope has been a lot of things to a lot of people: leader of seminal pop-punk band Hey Monday. Season 3 winner of The Voice. Platinum-selling (‘Wasting All These Tears’), Grammy-nominated (‘Think of You,’ a duet with Chris Young) country singer/songwriter. Ally and activist pushing for social change and a brighter future in a backward world.
But through it all – the Warped Tour parking lots, tours with Fall Out Boy and Yellowcard, CMT Awards, and chart-topping singles – she’s always remained fearlessly, unapologetically herself. Now, Pope returns with her most joyously authentically statement yet, effortlessly sliding into the ebullient pop-punk sound that defined the late ’00s with unbridled energy, sugar pill melodies and away message-ready wordplay.
Now, with a tremendous sense of freedom guiding her and a forthcoming album set to once again amplify her confessional writing and redefine her place as a pop-punk mainstay, the future’s open wide in ways she previously thought impossible – leaving no doubt she’s exactly where she’s meant to be.
