American Idol alum Catie Turner drops “Hyperfixations” ahead of tour and ambitious new project

Singer-songwriter Catie Turner has shared her latest introspective, upbeat pop record, “Hyperfixations,” releasing alongside an official music video.

“‘Hyperfixations,’ for me, is a normal therapy session,” says the American Idol season 16 finalist in a press statement. “Semi-concerning lyrics, but with a beat that says, ‘Hey, she’s kind of doing something!’ It’s about living inside my head to the point it affects my ability to love and to perceive love; it affects my ability to perceive life. I really hope you enjoy it, whether as a down-to-enjoy-some-chaos type of person or a fellow neurodivergent over-thinker.”

An ambitious new project

“Hyperfixations” marks the first chapter of Catie’s ambitious new project, Comedy & Tragedy, a two-part collection of songs and visuals to be released throughout 2023. According to a press release, Comedy & Tragedy: Act 1 and Comedy & Tragedy: Act 2 will 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. Along with “Hyperfixations,” this week Catie lifted the curtain on Comedy & Tragedy: The Musical: The Series, with the release of the project’s trailer.

You may recognize Catie’s fellow American Idol season 16 contestants, Maddie Zahm and Noah Davis.
