Catie Turner has released her eagerly awaited new single, “Play God,” available now to stream and download.

“’Play God’ is a sad song about not being able to fix a relationship and how the memories of places and sounds are triggered to one person; the type of song you listen to on a road trip and pretend you are a different person to,” Catie shared. “I wrote it because I was trying to fix a relationship but realized I had exhausted all my options and needed someone else to meet me, I couldn’t do the entire relationship maintenance by myself. Hence it being a sad song. I hope you guys like it as much as I do”

“Play God” follows Catie’s recent single “One Day.” “One Day” was joined by a sweet official companion video which played on ABC alongside an interview with Catie to celebrate the release. 

Catie first began writing songs and playing guitar in her hometown of Langhorne, PA, music providing her a means to cope with the social anxiety and myriad pressures placed upon a young woman in high school.

The 20-year-old artist captured national attention in 2018 as one of the standout stars of ABC’s American Idol, kicking off the season with an impressive audition performance of her original song, “21st Century Machine,” immediately winning over judges Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry, who applauded her a “genius songwriter.”
