Nashville, indie pop artist, Tessa Violet’s new single “ I Like (The Idea Of) You, is out now and featured on MTV News and premiered on Spotify’s New Music Friday, and Youtube Music’s “Pop Before It Breaks” playlist.
“I Like (The Idea Of) You” is the third single off the forthcoming project – to be released in three acts. Tessa is planning to release her album Bad Ideas one song at a time over throughout the year.
In support of her new music. Tessa will be touring throughout the year including an appearance at Lollapalooza. More dates to be announced soon.
The past year has been a whirlwind for Tessa Violet. Tessa released her critically acclaimed singles “Crush” and “Bad Ideas.” “Crush” has surpassed 18MM streams on Spotify and the music video has over 36MM views. Then came “Bad Ideas” where her Spotify numbers exploded, she toured with her first live band (anchored by badass drummer Jess Bowen), sold out her first ever headline shows (The Troubadour in LA; Mercury in NYC) and finally achieved her goal of bonafide rock-queen status when she was offered her first festival slot on this year’s Lollapalooza (incidentally selected by Billboard as one of the 10 new festival artists to look out for in 2019). She became the first YouTube Foundry Artist of 2019 and just finished touring the UK (her London show sold out in 30 minutes and added a second night which sold out as well).
Tessa explains the meaning of ‘I Like (The Idea Of) You’ saying, “I was seeing this guy at the time who I knew wasn’t that into me. And even though I could see that, it was still so much fun to think and obsess about him. Replaying the way he said my name on the phone, imagining what I would wear or say the next time I saw him, thinking of things I could write about him. I remember that I could logically see it wasn’t going anywhere, so I thought maybe I should feel embarrassed about how much time I was spending on him. But it didn’t make me feel embarrassed, it made me feel sexy and powerful. So what if they’re not that into me? I like the idea of it and I’m going to enjoy that.”
