Hey Violet release a new single — “Better By Myself” today on Hi or Hey/Capitol Records and available for streaming and purchase from all digital partners. In addition, an official video for the song, directed by Marcella Cytrynowicz, debuts today. Watch it HERE. “Better By Myself,” which was co-written by Hey Violet, Gabe Simon, and producer Daniel Nigro, is the first of four new tracks the band is set to release throughout the Spring and Summer.
“Better By Myself” captures the duality inherent in feeling invincible in solitude because you don’t need anyone, but recognizing that perhaps being totally alone isn’t necessarily the best path forward. “It’s about being in an unhealthy relationship and having the courage to leave, but realizing maybe you’re isolating a little much,” says Hey Violet frontwoman Rena Lovelis. “I think we need to fall in love with ourselves before we fall in love with anybody else and that’s why the song sounds so celebratory. It’s about finding that happy medium between ‘I don’t need anyone,’ which tends to be a defense mechanism, and being truly okay with yourself.”
Hey Violet will perform several upcoming shows to celebrate the release of their new music. All dates are below. Tickets go on sale today here: https://www.heyviolet.com/tour.
