Marié Digby to Release “Outside Our Heads” Single September 8

Marié Digby will release her hypnotic new single “Outside Our Heads” on September 8. Her first since December 2016’s “Venice Beach Christmas”, it’s also Digby’s first original non-holiday release since her 2014 Chimera EP.

“Outside Our Heads” is a sonic departure for Marié. Her discography to date has been summery, piano-based singer-songwriter pop ala Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michelson, but the sound she’s embracing now is sultry, beat-driven, and downright sexy. This new track was co-written and produced by 21-year-old newcomer Alexa Melo and mixed by Grammy Award-winner Dave Schiffman (Adele, Vampire Weekend).

“Alexa and I wrote this as if it were a musical version of an abstract painting”, Digby says. “We took a bunch of different sonic elements and tried to make something pleasing to the ear that makes you want to move. It’s definitely a big step out of my usual musical comfort zone which makes it even more exciting”.

Marié Digby burst onto the scene in 2007 when the video of her acoustic cover of Rihanna’s “Umbrella” went viral on YouTube. The associated buzz led Hollywood Records to release her debut album, Unfold, and it debuted at No. 29 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart in April of 2008.

Since then, Digby has been prolific, with numerous releases showcasing a combination of lyrical chops and piano balladry. She’s sold over 400,000 albums worldwide, reaching Gold status in Asia, and garnering over 120 million YouTube views.

“Out Of Our Heads” is the first of a series of tracks Marié will release over the next six months, with soon-to-be-announced tour dates in the U.S. beginning in the spring.

Perez Hilton Features Alexa Melo

Alexa Melo‘s song “Call This Love” was featured on PerezHilton.com this morning!

Perez writes, “Sometimes love can be quite painful, as Adele has mined for magnificent material. Up-and-comer Alexa Melo has just released a great new piano-driven ballad that explores the darker side of a relationship. Sonically, it is darker also than a traditional piano ballad. There are hints of Evanescence here – and we are loving it! In the good way!”

Check out the feature HERE.
