As Cassadee Pope prepares to drop her new Summer EP this Friday (June 3), the singer has opened up to The Boot about new music, dishing on how she chose which songs to feature on her new EP, and how she hopes to connect with fans with her release.
The new EP features four new tracks, three of which Cassadee wrote herself.
“I knew that I wanted “Alien” on there; that’s a song that I’ve had in my back pocket for quite some time,” Cassadee says. “”Summer” was also a song I had written a while ago, and I wasn’t sure if I wanted that one or another one that was in the running.”
“I started showing my favorite songs to all of my friends and family, and Chris Young and some other artists that I really confided in, and “Summer” was one of everybody’s favorites.”
Cassadee also reveals that she hopes her new music will connect with fans in the same way her previous single Wasting All These Tears did:
“I was really proud of how well “Wasting All These Tears” did, just by how well it was received by fans. I got stories about how that song helped them through some difficult times,” she says. “I’m hoping the same thing happens with “Alien,” “Summer,” “Kisses at Airports” and “Piano.” I just think that these songs can really help people, whether they’re in a good or bad place, I think that they’re going to resonate.”
