Cam releases much-anticipated new single 'Diane'

MUMBAI: Acclaimed, multi-award-nominated songstress Cam is sure to delight fans anxious for new music as she previews her 2018 Arista Nashville/RCA Records sophomore album with the release of Diane, the forthcoming collection’s debut single, available now.

Inspired by the storyline of Dolly Parton’s classic Jolene, the driving, tempo-rich track delivers a sonically refreshing tale of love and regret and commiseration.  The song was co-written by Cam, Jeff Bhasker, and Tyler Johnson, the team behind the most-downloaded song by a female country artist released since 2015—Cam’s Platinum-certified #1 smash, Burning House—which propelled Cam to her first Grammy®, ACM, CMA, CMT, and American Music Awards nominations.

About the song, Cam shares, “Diane is my response to Dolly Parton’s Jolene. It’s the apology so many spouses deserve, but never get.  The other woman is coming forward to break the news to the wife about an affair, respecting her enough to have that hard conversation, once she realized he was married.  Because everyone should be able to decide their own path in life, based on the truth.  Women especially should do this for each other, since our self-worth can still be so wrapped up in our partners.  And in true country fashion, I’ve set the whole raw story to upbeat music, so you can dance while you process it all.”

A Grammy winner as Producer of the Year, Jeff Bhasker (Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars) and multiple-Grammy nominee Tyler Johnson (Harry Styles, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran) produced Diane, in addition to co-writing the song with Cam.  Bhasker and Johnson also produced Cam’s widely acclaimed 2015 major-label debut, Untamed.

As part of the excitement surrounding the single release, Cam will perform Diane and other songs as part of a 30-minute Facebook Live stream event at 11 am, CT on 31 October, with the performance originating from an intimate music space in Sony Music Nashville’s office in the Gulch area of downtown Nashville, near Music Row.

Among other appearances in support of Diane, California-native Cam is looking ahead to the launch of her Best Coast Tour, headlining nine West Coast dates beginning 28 November.  Having recently opened selected shows on Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s blockbuster Soul2Soul Tour and for international star Harry Styles at his sold out Ryman Auditorium show in Nashville, Cam is also set to wrap her opening slot on George Strait’s 2017 residency tour at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with shows  8 and 9 December.

Along with working on her upcoming album, Cam’s busy 2017 included co-writing the song Palace with Sam Smith and Tyler Johnson on Sam Smith’s forthcoming album, The Thrill of It All, releasing 3 November.  She also contributed background vocals and electric guitar to the track.
