Just before the holidays, Bonnie also surprised fans with a new remix of last year’s dark and gritty new single, “Thorns,” from Los Angeles-based producer/songwriter, Le Youth. The remix follows in the footsteps of the single’s official video, which dropped last year, directed by Darren Craig (Rihanna, Kesha, Shakira) and premiering on NYLON. The Le Youth Remix is available to download and stream worldwide now. Listen HERE. Watch the hazy, retro-steeped visual for “Thorns” HERE.
Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as a “finger-snapping bop” with Billboard lauding it as a ”brooding” and “more polished self-aware form of alternative pop,” “Thorns” offers fans a first glimpse of what’s to come from the Californian artist since the release of her critically acclaimed “Bombastic” EP. Talking about the new single, Bonnie explains. “I wanted to do something unexpected. Everyone has heard my signature fun, bright, splashy pop bops, now it’s time for them to get a taste of my darker side.”
BonnieMcKee has gone on to become one of the industry’s most sought after songwriters, writing hits for the likes of Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, and Jason Derulo, to name a few. Her songs have received 6 Grammy nods, and dozens of BMI awards. Back in 2013, McKee released her own song, “American Girl“, followed in 2015 by the independent release of her first visual EP, “Bombastic“, which included four infectious pop gems (“I Want It All,” “Wasted Youth,” “Easy” and “Bombastic”), each one paired with its own brightly colored video. To date, Bonnie has accumulated nearly 50 MILLION VIEWS on her wildly original music videos, while her electrifying live performances and carefully curated visuals have gained her a robust fan-base, ever thirsty for more Bonnie. With today’s release of “Thorns,” it’s safe to say that thirst will be quenched with BonnieMcKee’s welcomed return. Stay tuned for new music from Bonnie, coming very soon!
