continues to intrigue and surprise listeners with her ability to
express herself through clever but clear lyrical and dynamic choices.
The newest track released today, “F U Forever,” is both brilliantly alarming but incredibly relatable and has increased the anticipation for her full-length debut album, Open Book, releasing next Friday (Sept. 27). The song was penned by Shorr with Candi Carpenter and Annie Wildgen. Due
to fan-demand, last week’s instant grat tracks, “Too Much To Say” and
“Escape,” have been made available on all digital platforms alongside
the new song. Open Book is available to pre-order and pre-save now.
Shorr’s first single from the album, “Lullaby”, made its radio premiere last weekend when Bobby Bones selected it for his Women of iHeartCountry
radio show that is syndicated nationally on iHeartCountry stations.
After that airing, Bobby decided to include it on that program again
this coming weekend.
never been more excited or more afraid to put out music into the world.
I’ve always written from a real place, but these songs are like three
minute journal entries. Seeing them resonate means more than I even
realized it would. I’m very thankful to Bobby Bones and Amy for having
‘Lullaby’ on their show and for all of the outlets who have already
written about these songs. The fan reaction has also been completely
new. It really validates me as both a human and an artist and proves my
theory that at the end of the day, authenticity always matters. I’m
happy to have the freedom to share my truth on this album, and
especially on a song like ‘F U Forever,’“ said Kalie Shorr.
