RaeLynn Signs With Round Here Records and AWAL, Drops Brand-New Song, ‘Bra Off’
RaeLynn announced on Friday (Nov. 8) that she has signed a new record deal with Round Here Records in partnership with AWAL. Round Here Records was launched in August of 2019 by Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, who signed Canaan Smith as the label's flagship artist at that time.
As a frequent collaborator of the FGL bandmates who already works with their music publishing company, Tree Vibez, RaeLynn explained in a press release that the partnership was a no-brainer.
"Signing to Round Here Records was an easy decision and I knew in my heart that this was the right home for my music," the singer explained. "I've known Tyler and BK for many years, and have always admired their electricity together as a team and as strong businessmen...To have artists like them -- who are innovative and slaying the game at the helm of the label -- adds something so unique and powerful. And alongside the AWAL team, this new platform gives me the support, and also the freedom, to build my brand in a unique way that we all envision."
In celebration of the signing, the singer has shared "Bra Off," an uptempo singalong that lays attitude and bubbly self-confidence on thick. With a dash of humor and a hefty helping of RaeLynn's trademark authenticity and homegrown attitude, the tune takes a matter-of-fact approach to a relationship that's better off over.
"Breaking up with you is like taking my bra off / Feeling free and loose like this t-shirt I got on," she sings in the chorus. "Bra Off" was co-written with Josh Kerr and Emily Weisband.
"This is what girls want to hear," RaeLynn says of the track. "As a girl, this is what I want to hear. I grew up in a small town of Baytown, Texas. And I've always said, 'If it ain't Baytown, I don't want to cut it.' It has to have that Baytown flavor. I grew up a church kid but I like to cuss, too. And I want all those flavors in the music because that is me, and it's my fans, too."
Per a press release, RaeLynn is at work on a new EP with producer Corey Crowder. The project is expected out in early 2020.
