Bartees Strange has previewed his upcoming album Live Forever with a new single called ‘Kelly Rowland’. Following the previously released ‘Mustang’ and ‘Boomer’, the track is accompanied by a music video directed by Britain Weyant. Check it out below.
“Another song that will probably stick with me forever because I had the hugest crush on Kelly Rowland and I copied literally every stylistic move Nelly did as a high schooler. Band aid included,” Strange wrote on Twitter.
Speaking about the song in an interview with Stereogum, the singer-songwriter said: “‘Kelly Rowland’ is my peak hedonistic dream, if I had no rules. I was in Berlin, and I saw the most beautiful, talented, wealthy, amazing people, we partied all night and danced all night. And I was like, ‘I cannot believe people live every day like this.’ It’s this hyper-idealized vision of what I wish I could be, for a moment.”
