Tessa Rae - Seventeen

22-year-old Oakland-born, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Tessa Rae has today unveiled her impressive debut single called "Seventeen". After years spent writing songs on her own, Rae teamed up with executive producer Justin Warfield, who helped create a sound that combines hip-hop beats, otherworldly soundscapes, evocative lyricism and dreamy melodies. "Seventeen" is the first release from her forthcoming Two Worlds mixtape, which features production from Warfield, Silkky Johnson (The Weeknd), DJ Adam 12 (She Wants Revenge) and Four Names (The Neighbourhood).

Speaking on the track, Tessa says:

"In a way 'Seventeen' is a coming of age story. For me, this song is about the internal conflict I think a lot of people face when it comes to love, especially when they're young. Learning when to grow up or when to let go of someone... that's something a lot of people struggle with. 'Seventeen' is ultimately about me reminiscing on the good and the bad of a young relationship and the bittersweet feelings of wanting it to last forever but knowing that it can't."

Listen to "Seventeen" below.

Premiere via Pigeons and Planes.
