Singer-songwriter Catie Turner has shared inspiring new single, “Easy,” alongside official music video. The American Idol 2018 alum originally teased the track on TikTok HERE, amassing over 1.1M and counting. “Easy” marks the latest chapter of Catie’s ambitious new project, Comedy & Tragedy, a two-part collection of songs and visuals to be released throughout 2023, with Act 1 due out late spring.

“To be quite frank, this song came from me being depressed and oh-so-high (if there are children reading this, I was high on life and introspection),” said Catie in a press statement. “I often times feel too much, and even more so I fear being ‘too much’; I want to be easy. The one who only elicits pleasant feelings. Unfortunately, there is no rule book that can teach you how to be easy 100% of the time: it doesn’t exist. I hope you like it, and cue the laugh track, find it EASY to listen to.”

“Easy” follows the release of the deeply introspective (but still upbeat) “Hyperfixations.”

Catie’s new visual project

Comedy & Tragedy: Act 1 and Comedy & Tragedy: Act 2 showcase Catie’s gift for intensely personal songcraft while simultaneously flexing her sonic versatility with a newfound creative edge. At the heart of the project is Catie’s belief in the dichotomy of drama – that truth cannot exist without both comedy and tragedy. Catie takes the theatrically inspired undertaking even further with Comedy & Tragedy: The Musical: The Series, now underway HERE.
