Colbie Caillat is saying goodbye to those laidback beach vibes and hello to the dancefloor with her new single “Hold On.”
With help from OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, who wrote and produced the track, the “Bubbly” singer is channeling her inner diva. There’s no acoustic guitar to be heard, just a pounding drum beat and layers and layers of Caillat’s voice, acting as both the devil and the angel on her shoulder as she figures out what to do about her new crush.
“I like that when I sing it, I feel rad — ‘rad’ is my word right now,” she told USA Today about the new track. “The production that Ryan used, the second the music comes on, I get in the moment. It makes me come alive, and it makes me want to perform.”
In an interview with MIX 105.1 in Orlando (a Radio.com station), Caillat gave away very few details about her upcoming untitled release, which is slated to come out in spring 2014, explaining, “It keeps changing, so now I’ve learned to shut my mouth.”
But Caillat did reveal that the album, her first since releasing her holiday album, Christmas in the Sand last year, will feature at least one song from Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds.
“Just two weeks ago I was writing with Babyface and Jason Reeves and we started a song from scratch and Jason had this guitar idea and then I had this chorus melody, and then Kenny had the verse melody, and then the other writer came up with the concept of the song,” she said. “It’s like playing a game of ping pong…you just keep bouncing ideas off each other until its done. It’s a really fun process.”
