Grammy® award-nominated songstress Cam has officially announced the release of her highly anticipated sophomore album The Otherside, out October 30 via Triple Tigers/RCA Records. The album was written over the last three years in LA, Nashville, and NYC with collaborators Tyler Johnson (Harry Styles, Sam Smith) and Grammy winner Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Bruno Mars), who she calls her fellow “tinkerers.” The Otherside is available for pre-order now HERE.
As a pre-release treat, she also delights fans with her captivating and *classic* new single, aptly-titled “Classic,” out today. Co-written and produced with Jack Antonoff (Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, St Vincent, The Chicks), “Classic” is about a relationship that transcends time and outlasts trends. “Ain’t nothin new I’m waitin for,” Cam sings, “cause they don’t make em like this anymore.” Full of warm and familiar references “like a bench in the front seat / Like a big yellow taxi / Like your best friend’s mixtape / A big limo and a prom date” to remind us how fun true love can be. “Classic” is available everywhere HERE.
“Jack and I caught something in the air that day and ran with it,” Cam says. “The track is so much fun. Jangling guitars, claps, it feels like when a group of familiar people get back together over the holidays, clanking around after dinner with too much wine, and amidst the chatter and laughter and closeness they are really telling each other, deep down, just how much they love each other.”
Earlier this year, Cam made her triumphant return with the release of “Till There’s Nothing Left,” performing the song on both The TODAY Show and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Following the track’s success, she also dropped the stunning “Redwood Tree” with a live performance on Good Morning America.
Both songs received critical acclaim, with NPR calling “Till There’s Nothing Left,” “a powerful testament to losing yourself to love like there’s no tomorrow,” and Rolling Stone noting on “Redwood Tree,” “[Cam’s] vocal stands out, conveying fortitude laced with vulnerability and a message to live in the moment.”
