Olivia Rodrigo Unveils “Vampire” as the First Single from Highly Anticipated Album “GUTS”

June 30, 2023

June 30, 2023
Hey, music lovers! Brace yourselves because the incredible Olivia Rodrigo is back with a bang! The 20-year-old sensation, who has taken the world by storm with her heartfelt and relatable music, has released her latest single titled “Vampire.” This emotionally charged track serves as the lead single from her eagerly awaited sophomore album, aptly titled “GUTS,” set to drop on September 8th.

Following the immense success of her record-breaking debut album “SOUR,” which went 4x Platinum and garnered critical acclaim, Rodrigo’s fans have been eagerly awaiting new music. “Vampire” is a departure from her dreamy minimalist style, featuring a larger-than-life sound characterized by pulse-pounding drumbeats and frenetic piano work.

In discussing the inspiration behind the song, Rodrigo shared, “I was upset about a certain situation and went to the studio alone and sat down at the grand piano, and the chords and melody and lyrics just poured out of me — almost like an out-of-body experience.” She further explained, “It’s a song about feeling confused and hurt, and at first, I thought it was meant to be a piano ballad. But when Dan and I started working on it, we juxtaposed the lyrics with these big drums and crazy tempo changes. So now it’s like a heartbreak song you can dance to.”

To complement the release of “Vampire,” Rodrigo enlisted the talents of renowned artist/director/photographer Petra Collins to create a visually stunning music video. The video made its global broadcast premiere on MTV Live and across MTV’s network of channels, as well as on the Paramount Times Square billboards. Collins, who previously directed the videos for Rodrigo’s hits “brutal” and “good 4 u,” brings her creative flair to showcase the song’s powerful narrative.

Fans were treated to an exclusive in-person premiere event in Los Angeles, hosted by Rodrigo and YouTube. During the event, she introduced the #vampireOR2 Shorts challenge and celebrated the official music video release alongside her devoted fans and YouTube creators.

Rodrigo’s upcoming album, “GUTS,” is a testament to her growth as an artist. Although deeply rooted in emotional honesty, the album explores new dimensions of her artistry and features a rock-influenced sound. Speaking about the creative process, Rodrigo revealed, “This album was much more about focusing on the craft of songwriting, which sometimes meant not taking myself so seriously and getting a little more tongue-in-cheek with my lyrics.”

Olivia Rodrigo’s meteoric rise to stardom is undeniably impressive. With her debut album “SOUR,” she won three Grammy Awards and achieved numerous chart milestones. Her breakout hit “drivers license” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and shattered streaming records.

As we eagerly await the release of “GUTS” on September 8th, we can only imagine the musical journey that Olivia Rodrigo has in store for us. Her honest storytelling and powerful vocals have captivated millions, making her one of the most promising artists of her generation.

So mark your calendars, stream “Vampire,” and get ready for a dose of Olivia Rodrigo’s electrifying artistry. The wait is almost over, and we’re in for a treat when “GUTS” arrives this September!
