“reckless driving,” the new song from rising artist Lizzy McAlpine featuring Ben Kessler, debuts today alongside an accompanying video. Directed by Gus Black, the video made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live and MTVU.
The track appears on McAlpine’s forthcoming album, five seconds flat, set for release April 8 on Harbour Artists & Music / AWAL Recordings. McAlpine’s previously released singles “erase me,” “doomsday” and “all my ghosts” continue to receive praise. In addition, McAlpine performed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the follow up to her U.S. television debut on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!.”
The new music finds McAlpine stepping into her own as an artist, building on her past while looking toward the future. “I want to give my fans something different with each record, because I’m different each record,” notes McAlpine. “I want to always be growing and moving forward as an artist.”
Predominantly produced by Philip Etherington and Ehren Ebbage, the 14-track album was recorded in Eugene, OR and at The Laundry Pile in Los Angeles. five seconds flat also includes contributions from Grammy-Award winners FINNEAS and Jacob Collier as well as Ben Kessler and Laura Elliott.
