Bonnie McKee Is Releasing A New Single Called “Thorns”
After promoting her Bombastic EP for over a year (each song got an amazing video), Bonnie Mckee is finally rolling out new material. The songwriting queen, who penned “Teenage Dream” for Katy Perry and “Hold It Against Me” for Britney Spears, just announced a new single called “Thorns.” The track drops on Friday (August 18) and promises to be a change of direction away from the ’80s-influenced electro-pop of her recent singles.
It will be interesting to see if “Thorns” is the first taste of Bonnie’s sophomore LP or a stand-alone single. “I really am looking forward to doing a full length, but I’m just putting this EP to see what happens, see what opportunities come my way,” the pop diva told me when she was promoting Bombastic. “I have a whole album’s worth of material that I wrote when I was on Epic ready to go.”
“There will be a full length, or you know what, there’s a possibility I may just do EPs and be like, ‘Here’s a batch, here’s a batch, here’s a batch.’ They could all be totally different, there are no rules.” I guess we’ll know more later this week. Regardless, “Thorns” is destined to be yet another bop.
