COLLEEN GREEN – ” Someone Else “

Posted: September 29, 2021 in MUSIC

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Colleen Green is releasing a new album, “Cool”, on September 10th via Hardly Art. She then shared its third single, album opener “Someone Else.”

Green had this to say about the song in a press release: “This song is about double standards within a relationship, and how they can go both ways. It’s about coming to terms with you how you actually feel about something and taking responsibility for how that affects you. It’s about taking back power in a one-sided relationship and not letting someone else dictate your happiness. It’s about choices and the act of making them.”

Colleen Green’s “Cool”which features official videos for “I Wanna Be a Dog,” “It’s Nice to Be Nice,” and “Highway,”  along with the track “Someone Else,” is out now on all DSPs and LP/CD/CS formats from Hardly Art Records. LPs ordered through Hardly Art Mini Mart, select independent retailers in North America, the UK, and EU will receive the vinyl on cool, cloudy smoke vinyl.

Previously Green shared Cool’s first single, “I Wanna Be a Dog,” via a video for it. Then she shared its second single, “It’s Nice to Be Nice,” via a video for it featuring Green performing the song on a sailboat.

Cool is Green’s fourth album and the follow-up to 2015’s very well-received I Want to Grow Up. Green co-produced the album with Gordon Raphael, which was mixed by Brendan Eder.

You can now watch Colleen Green’s “Highway”, a new standout from Cool, her Hardly Art release, directed by Ben Kettleson.
Green says of the track, “The newest in a long line of my songs that use driving and being in cars as allegory. Living and touring on the west coast for 10 years, I grew to dislike the highway. It represents so many things that I hate about myself and about humanity/society in general. Not having a car for over a decade helped make me a much calmer person. When I’m on the bus or walking, I am stress-free. I don’t have to talk and I don’t have to worry about anything. I love being able to look all around me and notice beautiful, simple things. When people are on the highway, they’re going too fast to notice any kind of beauty, and they have a whole mess of stressors to deal with. Country roads represent freedom and serenity. Something I appreciate about where I’m from and where I’m now living again is that there are many different ways to get to a place. Even though LA is a huge city, there’s pretty much only one way to get anywhere and it’s very confining.” 

The album was recorded at various Southern California studios: comp-ny (Glendale), Tenement Yard (North Hollywood), and Cosmic Vinyl (Los Angeles). Frida Claeson Johansson mastered Cool at Svenska Grammofonstudion in Gothenburg, Sweden.
