Lowell has experienced an entire career’s worth of music industry ups-and-downs in an astonishingly short period of time. Her journey from dropping out of college and working as a stripper to finding her footing as the go-to songwriter for platinum selling pop stars will be fodder for an incredible book one day, but freshly earned double platinum (“Not A Love Song” by Bülow) and gold (“Selfish” by Madison Beer) certified plaques and a new solo album on the way, Lowell’s in no rush to write her story. It’s only just beginning. And if she’s learned anything from the last decade, it’s that when life hands you lemons.
Today, the Los Angeles/Toronto based singer-songwriter releases “Lemonade”, a modern piano ballad that pulls as much inspiration from ‘70s singer-songwriters like Carole King and Randy Newman as it does Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey. The new stripped-back single about toxic positivity feels timeless, like it was pulled out of a collective memory, but with a big F-bomb in the hook and a prominent Migos-esque triplet flow in the pre-chorus, it couldn’t be more contemporary. Having spent so much time in the pop world recently, Lowell chose to present these songs how they were written, in their most essential state and most simple essence.
“Lemonade” is the first single from an album that’s due in early 2021.
