Phoebe Ryan unveiled the video for new single "Chronic" today (April 14) which depicts the Jersey-raised singer in a "throwback, underdog story" spotlighting her brand of cheeky, feel-good indie-pop. The rising star also stopped by Fuse to talk about her new single, which she says is the first taste of her forthcoming full-length album:
"There's some interesting topics I would say that are not super PG, but they're going to be great and said in a very fun way. There's a lot of songs that touch on a lot of different subjects. Some of them are fun, cheeky, kind-of 'Chronic'-vibe songs. But then there's some songs that are a little bit darker. There's so many different vibes coming in at all angles now as we develop a story and a sound."
Ryan added that she's particularly excited for fans to hear songs like "Outside," which will showcase a different side of her.
One person who's likely jazzed to hear that album is none other than Taylor Swift, who gave Phoebe's 2015 single "Mine" a shoutout in her New Songs That Will Make Your Life More Awesome playlist on Twitter. The green-haired singer says it was "mind-blowing" when she saw the shoutout and was inspired by the message:
"I couldn't believe it was happening on in reality on this Earth. But I'm still waiting for her to hit me up; still waiting for her to call me for a duet. I got an idea for a duet already for the song—I can't share it!—but I got one! And it would be amazing. I was very grateful. If I'm ever in her position, I would love to be supporting young artists as well."
