Vers van de pers! Olivia Rodrigo dropt zojuist de video voor ‘Brutal’, een track afkomstig van haar succesvolle ‘SOUR’ album. Voor de productie van Olivia`s punkrock song, dat gaat over generatietrauma’s, is van Dan Nigro. “I told everyone that I wanted to make “brutal” the first track on the record, and they were like, “Girl, are you sure?” Just ‘cause it’s kind of a little polarizing, I think, but I absolutely love it. It’s a really angsty song I suppose, and I sort of just talk about everything that I’m upset about in the song, to put it very plainly and broadly”, aldus de 18-jarige zangeres.
“I think it’s funny that we wrote the first track on the record kind of last minute, but it’s one of my favorites … I wrote [“brutal”]—and most of my songs—with my producer, Dan Nigro. He’s awesome. We were in the car listening to a bunch of old ‘90s songs and really liked that energy. Then he came up with this awesome riff.” Olivia Rodrigo scoort op dit moment nog een grote hit in Nederland met ‘Good 4 U’.
