Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, Olivia Rodrigo, today released her highly-anticipated new original single, “deja vu,” the follow up to her massively successful single “drivers license” which spent 6 weeks at No. 1 on Channel R’s Chart Show and 8 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Olivia also announced the release of her debut album, which will be released on Friday, May 21, 2021.
Complete with sparkling piano melodies, buzzing guitar synths, and Rodrigo’s soaring vocals, “deja vu” further cements her status as the most promising young artist to emerge this year. Written by Rodrigo last fall, the track underscores her songwriting prowess, unique narrative voice, and talent at illustrating complex emotional spaces that often go unexplored in pop music.
The concept of deja vu has always fascinated me and I thought it would be cool to use it in a song around the complex feelings after a relationship ends,” says Rodrigo. “I started writing and recording ‘deja vu’ last fall and had so much fun creating the different melodies and sonic textures that you hear throughout.
