Drea has released her highly anticipated new single ‘Hometown’, now available across all digital platforms as of Friday, February 2, 2018. Backed by music producer Kayja, this alternative pop track gives fans a new lyrical depth and a powerful vocal performance from Drea. ‘Hometown’ is the singer’s first release since her bold debut EP No Vacancy was launched in 2016, and is an exciting glimpse into Drea’s sophomore project to come later this year.

Drea on “Hometown”: “ ‘Hometown’ is a song about leaving home to fulfill your dreams. When I left Minnesota for LA, I left a good job, and all my friends and family. I packed up my life into a rundown Jeep, and drove 2,000 miles to a city where I had no connections, no job, and no place to live, only a dream. The hardest part about leaving home was knowing how much I hurt my parents, and knowing that they may never understand why I left. In many ways, this song is my apology to them, but ‘Hometown’ is also a song for the dreamers. It is a declaration that no matter how hard things get, we are still here, we’re still fighting, we still believe in ourselves, and that’s why we’re not going home.”
Drea will be celebrating the release of ‘Hometown’ at her single release show hosted by Songwriter Sundays at Fox N Hounds in Los Angeles on February 4th.
On January 31st, Drea launched Reclaim Movement, a dance and movement class in Los Angeles empowering women to reclaim ownership of their bodies from the trauma of sexual assault, abuse, and every day stress.
