UNVEILS HEARTFELT VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “I’LL STILL HAVE ME”

 

With her upcoming tour with British pop trio  Years & Years  just two weeks away, rising artist  CYN  has released her latest single, a poignant pop ballad called “ I’ll Still Have Me.”  The new song is paired with a touching and heartfelt music video that sees CYN performing to a community center of seniors.  The moving video was beautifully directed by  Ben Richardson  (Director of Photography on:  Beasts of The Southern Wild, The Fault In Our Stars ,  Wind River ), and is bookended by emotional clips of the seniors reminiscing on their first loves. 
 
Speaking about the inspiration behind the song,  CYN  explains; “ After realizing a break up was imminent, I wrote this song to convince myself that everything would be fine. Focusing on who I am and where I’m headed made me feel less empty and more like I would make it through this heartbreak— finding sanctuary in myself was my safest bet and sturdiest lean upon.”
 

“ I’ll Still Have Me ” follows previous singles, including “ Believer ” which  Harper’s Bazaar  hailed as an  “infectious, sugary bop”  with  Billboard  lauding it a  “sensual and shadowy shiver for the dancefloor,”  as well as the i-D Magazine  approved  “dark dance-floor ready”  single, “ Alright .”
 
Next month,  CYN  will embark on a 19-city North American Tour with acclaimed British trio, Years & Years. The  Palo Santo Tour  kicks off  October 5 , and sees  CYN  joining frontman  Olly Alexander  and his band mates  Mikey Goldsworthy  and  Emre Turkmen  in Toronto, Ontario before making their way across the east-coast, mid-west, and south, then winding up on the west coast and concluding in Seattle on  October 30 . 
 
Earlier this month saw the release of “ Moment of Truth ,” a new song  CYN  recorded for  The Smallfoot: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack , which is set for release on  September 28  via Warner Bros.’  WaterTower Music label. In theaters next Friday, “ Smallfoot ” stars Channing Tatum, James Corden, Common, LeBron James, Danny DeVito and Gina Rodriguez, and tells the tale of a bright young yeti coming face to face with a human for the very first time. Watch  CYN  in the official video for “ Moment Of Truth ”  HERE .
 
CYN  first entered the musical arena when she released ” Together , which  The FADER  praised as  “a breath of fresh air”  and followed with the infectious “ Only With You ” which she co-wrote with producer extraordinaire,  Felix Snow  (Selena Gomez, Kiiara, Terror Jr.). The track was an early standout for the young artist, following a chance meeting with label founder  Katy Perry , who instantly fell in love with the talented popstar’s voice and her keen ability to craft a perfect pop song,  CYN  signed to Perry’s  Unsub Records  in 2016.
 
An ardent supporter of the LGBTQ community,  CYN ’s latest single, “ Believer ” is featured on  Heard Well ’s latest compilation album,  Pride ,  which was released in partnership with the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network ( GLSEN ) for Pride Month this past June.  Available for purchase HERE, proceeds from the  Pride  compilation album benefit GLSEN, which works to ensure that global school environments are safe, productive spaces for LGBTQ youth.
 
With a debut EP in the works and  SOLD OUT  tours in the US and Central America under her belt, now is the perfect time to catch this rising starlet in action. Be sure to catch  CYN  on the road with  Years & Years  this fall!

RELEASES OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR LATEST SINGLE “ONLY WITH YOU” 

Rising pop artist CYN has premiered her official video for the Felix Snow-produced single “Only With You.”
 
Directed by Kylie Eaton in collaboration with SOAP, the tongue-in-cheek video sees CYN perfectly play the part of a delightfully quirky, slightly unhinged character. “At the time, I was watching the George Harrison documentary on Netflix, George Harrison: Living in
theMaterialWorld.” CYN explains of the inspiration behind the video. In that documentary there's a clip of a man with Mick Jagger talking about female fans, he goes on to say: "This is largely an appeal to the feminine heart, the heart of the young girl, who worships the goddess of love and the heroes of love. And this plays a dominant part of her life. So the vast majority of the fans are girls, who come to worship at the shrine of the goddess, or the young god hero, as they did in the ancient past."  For whatever reason, this little dialogue spoke to me. I remember what it felt like to be enthralled with admiration for movie stars and singers while I was growing up. This love obsession is a very real feeling for the youth, and I wanted to let it inspire me.”

RELEASES NEW FELIX SNOW PRODUCED SINGLE “ONLY WITH YOU”

CYN returns today with the Felix Snow produced “Only With You.” The infectious new single  “Only With You” is out worldwide now on iTunes, Apple and Spotify via Katy Perry’s record label Unsub Records. Listen HERE.

 
Written by CYN and producer extraordinaire Felix Snow (Selena Gomez, Kiiara, Terror Jr.), “Only With You” is an early standout track for the young artist. Following a chance meeting with label founder Katy Perry, who instantly fell in love with the burgeoning popstar’s voice and her keen ability to craft a perfect pop song, CYN signed to Unsub Records in 2016.
 
Speaking about how the new track came to be, CYN explains “I knew who Felix was and loved the songs he worked on previously, so I was geeked to work with him. We wrote and recorded the song in North Hollywood. At the time, Felix was still working out of his living room. The song began on acoustic guitar and evolved to be some kind of hybrid, electronic funk pop vibe. We recorded vocals in a closet-turned vocal booth with no light. The vocals on the final track are the vocals from day one, which is something really special, I think. Overall, we wrote this song in probably 3 hours!”
 
Born into a humble middle-class home in Michigan, outside of Detroit, CYN (née Cynthia Nabozny) moved from Chicago to Los Angeles last year where she has spent much of 2017 working hard, writing and recording new material.
