She’s the fresh-faced, critically acclaimed songstress from down under, but who is she? Betty Who of course. Coming back with her brand new album The Valley, Betty has poured her soul into producing one of her tastiest albums yet. It follows the success of her single ‘Human Touch’ which came out towards the end of last year. The song takes pride of place on her long-awaited The Valley album and tells the story about adjusting to life following a breakup. “After a relationship ends, you’ll always live in this weird middle ground where you used to be the closest person in the world to this ex—but now you’re not anymore,” she says of the track. “It’s real to me, and it felt universal enough for me to write about.” With its upbeat and funky production, ‘Mama Say‘ is the next single off the LP and is pop in its finest form.
In between promoting her new album and single, Betty took a photo diary to let us in on exactly what she’s been up to the past few weeks. “On Friday I put out my album and the week leading up to it was hectic, to say the least!” she says. “I went from SXSW back to LA for two nights then off to NYC for the week of press and meetings, finishing up the week on album release day with a performance on the Today Show! I met a lot of wonderful new people, was lucky enough to see some old friends, and rehearsed till all hours of the night. But I am so lucky to have so many wonderful men and women keeping me going after long days like these.”
Take a look at her photo diary below.
In between releasing her latest album The Valley, Betty has been flitting between New York and LA and even found time to hit up South by Southwest film festival in Austin, Texas. Thankfully it won’t be long until Betty will be coming to British soil. She’ll be playing two UK show dates, one in London’s Underbelly on May 17th and The Great Escape in Brighton on May 18th.
