EMI Records’ Kelleigh Bannen released her dynamic new single, “Famous” to country radio this week. Bannen has paired the song with a vibrant video premiering exclusively on VEVO today, Jan. 23.
“Famous” takes a fresh approach and puts a playful, karmic spin on the familiar “somebody-done-somebody-wrong” country song. Available now on iTunes
“What first attracted me to the single was the angle,” explains Bannen. “You cheated on me, you hurt me – so I’m going to make you famous. It’s not just revengeful, there’s a little smile and wink to it – and I love that!”
The visually stunning video, directed by London Alley’s Hannah Lux Davis (Lil Wayne, Ciara) and shot in Palmdale, Calif., showcases Bannen as the feisty heroine in the story alongside powerful performance footage from the up-and-coming star. View behind the scenes footage HERE.
“Famous,” written by Sara Haze, Gordie Sampson and Troy Verges, is the first single off Bannen’s forthcoming album. Bannen teamed with producers Jedd Hughes and Jason Lehning to help achieve her unique blend of country music story-telling delivered with an edge.
