Bonnie McKee's "Sleepwalker" Video
Singer/songwriter Bonnie McKee gets seriously spooky in her "Sleepwalker" video clip.

The last time we heard from Bonnie McKee, she was getting into the Christmas spirit with festive bop “California Winter.” It was cute and all, but we (ie. thirsty BonBons) really just wanted the long-awaited follow-up to 2013 singles “American Girl” and “Sleepwalker.” Happily, it could be just around the corner. Members of the singer/songwriters teams posted pics from a new video on Instagram and used the hashtag #WastedYouth.

“Ariana and I had the pleasure of shooting with @bonniemckee for her forthcoming music video #wastedyouth today!” musician Wayne Dewing captioned a photo. “Such fun thank you Bonnie so excited for your video!” Another collaborator posted a pic of a cereal-filled bathtub and wrote: “Cereal bath. New music and video on the way! #wastedyouth #bonniemckee.” I’m here for this. The 31-year-old has penned some of the biggest hits of the decade for other artists (see Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” and Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite”), so it’s definitely her turn to shine.

Bonnie’s collaborators spill the beans on #WastedYouth:

Cereal bath. New music and video on the way! #wastedyouth #bonniemckee
