Cam is back with the upcoming release of her long-awaited sophomore album, The Otherside. The news comes after the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter signed a new record deal with Triple Tigers/RCA Records.
Out October 30, The Otherside was recorded over the last three years in Los Angeles, Nashville and New York City. Cam collaborated with Tyler Johnson (Harry Styles, Sam Smith) and Grammy-winner Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Bruno Mars) on the much-anticipated project, which serves as the follow-up to her major-label debut, 2015’s Untamed.
The album announcement comes with the release of the California native’s brand new single, “Classic.” Co-written and produced with Jack Antonoff (Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, St Vincent, The Chicks), “Classic” is pure fun and finds Cam happily gushing over a relationship that withstands the test of time.
“Ain’t nothin new I’m waitin for,” she sings, “cause they don’t make ’em like this anymore.”
“Jack and I caught something in the air that day and ran with it,” Cam shared in a statement. “The track is so much fun. Jangling guitars, claps, it feels like when a group of familiar people get back together over the holidays, clanking around after dinner with too much wine, and amidst the chatter and laughter and closeness they are really telling each other, deep down, just how much they love each other.”
The Otherside will also include the previously released tracks “Till There’s Nothing Left” and “Redwood Tree.”
