Brooklyn Haley is on a mission. Aptly titled, "Cold Case" is the rising singer-songwriter's new single that nails the sentiment left in a confusing, unfair end to a relationship. But the new track also succeeds in showcasing an edgier side of the California singer, who last hit us with the electro-pop earworm "Close to Where You Are." Fuse is proud to exclusively premiere her growth with her new single and video above.
Crafted by Dutch producer Tearce Kizzo (Pitbull, Afrojack, David Guetta), "Cold Case" is a hard-hitting, synthy spectacular with an emotionally jarring chorus that's quick to get stuck in your head. The video shows Haley in a new light as an empowered pop star, standing fierce in a desert in a leather skirt and tank top—a big change from her cartoon-inspired looks in "Close to Where You Are."
Haley tell us she's particularly pumped to share this with the world since it comes from a personal place.
"Creating the song and video allowed for me to turn the pain from a past experience into something beautiful, something people can relate to," she says. "That's what good music does. As a musician, I feel a responsibility to reach out, share my love and pain with others. 'Cold Case' does this, honestly, truly, deeply, painfully, from my heart to yours."
"Cold Case" is the latest single off Haley's upcoming album We May Be Young, scheduled for a late 2014/early 2015 release.
