Singer-songwriter Catie Turner has plans to steal your dad with her unconventional new pop anthem, “Step Mom,” available everywhere now via Atlantic Records. The American Idol season 16 finalist has been playing the song throughout her tour with Léon making it a favorite already with fans highly anticipating the release.
The song, written by Catie Turner, James Droll and Joe Santana lays out a rather, uh, unique revenge on the boy who broke Catie’s heart. The lyrics go: “I won’t beg you for a second chance/Cause I got a man now with a good health plan/I’m going to steal your dad/Be the best he ever had/Send your mom home crying/Cause he couldn’t keep his promise/And he traded in his ring/To give me everything I wanted.”
“I wanna be your stepmom!” Catie declares, “It could have been us if you never did me wrong.” The clever breakup anthem is sung against a catchy power-pop beat. Watch the lyric video below.
Catie broke through with the single “God Must Hate Me.”
A self-proclaimed “overthinking, overwhelmed musician with a talent in overcomplicating situations,” Catie’s breakthrough hit single, “God Must Hate Me,” proved a viral phenomenon upon its November 2021 release. “God Must Hate Me” is Catie’s top streaming record to date with 52.9M global streams. In the first 3 days, the single earned 173K streams and 1.2M streams in the first week. The track landed Catie on the cover Spotify’s “Next Gen Singer Songwriters” playlist while earning over 38M streams.
In 2021, Catie released her debut EP, Heartbroken and Milking It, introduced by the single “Therapy.” Most recently, Catie has been touring the US with the likes of Valley and LEON and releasing music like the recent high-energy bop “Nothing,” which she dedicated to her “fellow procrastinators.”
While gracing the cover of Spotify’s “Sad Hour” playlist, last fall also saw Catie team up with pop artist JORDY for a moving, co-written duet, “(Wish I Didn’t Have To) Lie,” followed by a series of US tour dates that saw the two artists further collaborating by performing their song together onstage.
This year has seen Catie spending even more time on the road, including a major US run supporting Canadian pop band Valley and a just-wrapped series of dates as special guest on Léon’s Fade Into A Dream: The North American Tour.
