Actress, songwriter and musician, Laura Marano, released a new interpretation of fierce original track “Can’t Help Myself” featuring musician and filmmaker, Jean Deaux, and remixed by Pop/Latin/RnB artist, Poe Leos, today. Written by Marano, Deaux and Johan Lindbrandt, “Can’t Help Myself” is the second collaboration to release this year following “Honest With You” with acclaimed pop musician alextbh, both of which are tracks off her hit 2020 YOU EP. Remotely recorded from each of their homes in LA, Laura, Poe and Jean came together to record this very special duet about toxic relationships and surrendering to the heart wants what it wants. Marano’s vivacious energy followed into this newly imagined track as she continues to be a noisemaker in the indie-pop space. Listen to the new track HERE.
“’Can’t Help Myself’ is the next remixed single off my deluxe YOU EP, and it’s my first remixed version to feature two artists, who also happen to be these incredible female powerhouses,” said Marano. “I’ve been a fan of Jean Deaux’s work for a while, and I was beyond thrilled to have her create two verses for the song. I was connected to Poe Leos through someone we both work with, and I knew she was this awesome singer, but I did not realize she had gotten into producing (and is pretty flipping awesome at it). Together, we have created this new type of anthem; a sexy, flirty song, that is about the glorious feeling of an ex who broke your heart but wants you back. This version of the song builds on the story the original version tells, but this one feels even more fun. Even though I know how much my fans loved the original, I think they’re going to be even more obsessed with the remix.”
Up next and announced today, Marano is set to release the Deluxe version of her current EP YOU on Friday, June 25th worldwide. The original EP, that released last October, has currently received support from Spotify, Apple, Tidal, Billboard, MTV, Live Nation/Ones To Watch, Radio Disney, and more.
“Can’t Help Myself” with Poe Leos and Jean Deaux is available now on all digital and streaming platforms. Stream the track HERE.
