Olivia O'Brien - Empty

Rising 17-year-old Napa Valley-raised, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Olivia O'Brien has just unveiled her latest alt-pop masterpiece called "Empty" along with its accompanying music video shot by director Chandler Lass. Serving as Olivia’s fifth release since her signing to Island Records was announced last August, "Empty" follows "hate u love u", "Trust Issues", "Find What You're Looking For" and "Root Beer Float" (featuring Blackbear) - all of which have accumulated millions of listeners across various streaming platforms.

Speaking on the track, Olivia says:

"I wrote ‘Empty’ when I was at my lowest.I had just moved to LA and was kind of lost in life. I didn't feel like I fit in with my new friends but my old friends were moving on in their lives without me. I let myself wallow in my depression for months, letting it get worse and worse and not telling anyone until I started feeling like every aspect of my life was tragic and hopeless. Finally, when I started writing this song in a studio session I broke down and told the producer how I had been feeling. It was a very emotional day but I came out of it feeling so much better about everything and knowing I had just written my most vulnerable, emotional, and real song yet."

Watch the video for "Empty" below.

"Empty" is available now on iTunes.
