Nineteen year old singer-songwriter Brynn Cartelli returns with the release of her ethereal new single, “Gemini.” Inspired by Stevie Nicks and Florence Welch, the dreamy pop song explores the dual-natured personality associated with the astrological sign.
The song is available now on all streaming platforms. Brynn also drops the music video, which marks Brynn’s directorial debut. Captured in upstate New York, the visual plays into the Gemini Twins Zodiac sign.
Brynn shared in a press statement: “The song ‘Gemini’ started off as a joke. I thought it would be funny to play into the dual-natured stereotype in a song; then I went to London and finished it.” She elaborated, “I wanted to lean into inspirations of women that inspired me since I was young, like Stevie Nicks and Florence Welch, but in my own pop sphere. I am so excited about how different ‘Gemini’ is than any of the songs on my first project [Based on a True Story]. I’m leaning into the witchy energy of the East Coast and am scaring Geminis everywhere, which you can also see in the music video that I directed myself.”
The Based on a True Story EP was introduced with “Long Way Home,” which was co-written by Brynn and Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Kylie Minogue). The singer also delivered an emotional performance of the fan-favorite track “If I Could” – co-penned with Ben Abraham (Demi Lovato, Sara Bareilles) – on The Kelly Clarkson Show. The song has amassed over 15M+ global streams to date.
Brynn won The Voice season 14 at age 15
At age 15, Brynn won Season 14 of NBC’s The Voice (on Team Kelly) and emerged as the youngest champion in the show’s history. She introduced her signature style on single “Last Night’s Mascara,” which has racked up 16M+ total streams worldwide. Hitting the road, she supported Kelly Clarkson and Maroon 5 on tour.
Cartelli is currently in the studio working on new original music, slated for release later this year on Elektra Records. She will also be the special guest at labelmates New Rules’ sold out headline show at Mercury Lounge in New York, NY on Thursday, June 2, and headline Rockwood Music Hall in the city on Saturday, June 11.
