REBEL POP Records co-founder and artist Katie Costello has just released the video for her song “Hearts on Fire.” The track is the third and final cut off her recently released EP “New World,” and PopStar! Online have called it “the perfect song to end Summer.” Fans can watch the stunning and uplifting new video here.
Following up the release of the “New World” EP is Katie’s third studio album, Twice the Love, due out October 6th. Fans can pre-order the album here.
Katie had this to say about the album: “My third album Twice the Love is unlike anything I’ve made before in that each song was written and recorded in a different city with a different creative collaborator. I learned to let go making this album and my wish is that those who listen to it will feel open-hearted, alive, and free spirited in their journey to follow their dreams.”
Some notable collaborators on the record include Justyn Pilbrow from The Neighborhood, who lent his hand on the production of “Holiday,” and Tim Myers (founding member of One Republic), who produced third single “Here & Now.”
To promote the release of the record, Katie recently performed a secret show in Brooklyn as part of the SoFar Sounds series. She will also be performing on October 6th in Los Angeles at the legendary songwriter haunt, Hotel Cafe.
Katie Costello’s self-assured pop has been winning over pop fans for years. Influential British DJ Nic Harcourt featured Katie on his KCRW “Today’s Top Tune” show, and praised Costello for her mature songwriting. Katie’s anthems of compassion and hope have also popped up on the radar of Hollywood star Rosario Dawson, who tweeted in appreciation of Katie’s song “New World,” and called Costello “more prescient than ever!”
A California native, Costello began writing songs as early as thirteen years old. Eventually she began performing her songs around Los Angeles, and when she turned seventeen, released her debut full-length album, Kaleidoscope Machine. A year later, Katie would leave the insular nature of Los Angeles to find new inspiration and cultural diversity in New York City’s Lower East Side. Upon moving to New York, Katie’s creativity blossomed into something tangibly beautiful, resulting in her second full-length album Lamplight, produced by Tony Berg, along with the release of various EP’s and singles.
With Twice the Love slated for a release this October, 2017 looks to be the year Katie Costello’s uniquely infectious “Rebel Pop” hits its much deserved stride, and maybe along the way, Katie’s songs will shine a little bit of light into the world.
