LAS VEGAS — (06-03-22) — Pop icon, singer-songwriter Betty Who releases an anthemic new single, “Blow Out My Candle” via BMG. Just in time for Pride, an accompanying music video that made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live and MTVU is also out now.
“Blow Out My Candle” is a triumphant return to form for Betty Who. On the ‘80s-inspired song, Betty channels her infectious spirit with a newfound level of insight and introspection. The track is a catchy ode to perseverance, with a chorus that activates the dancefloor:
“You can blow out my candle, but you you’ll never put out my fire.” The video, directed by Tyler Cunningham, finds Betty embracing the ‘80s aesthetic as she dances around in a Jamie Lee Curtis-inspired workout leotard, sweatband, and high socks as she sings about self confidence and love.
“It’s been a long couple years for all of us,” says Betty Who about the single. “I spent my time off learning to bake (of course)…and incessantly thinking all day and all night about what kind of music I wanted to return with. “Blow Out My Candle” is the story I want to share most. The feeling I held onto in the darkest moments of the last couple years. I hope it gives you the confidence and motivation it gives me,” said Betty Who.
The single written by Betty Who and co-produced with longtime friend and collaborator Martin Johnson (“The Night Game/Boys Like Girls”) – is the perfect primer to announce a new chapter for Betty.
She has also partnered with the nonprofit organization in its voting registration efforts for the month of Pride. Betty previously performed at the 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in 2019 and is a frequent collaborator with the nonprofit, as well as with The Trevor Project, whom she worked with on previous tours.
GLAAD has declared this Pride month as a month of action and is rallying with the community to make sure everyone is registered to vote in the midterm elections. Betty Who is also working in tandem with GLAAD to fight against the anti-trans and anti LGBTQ legislation by getting record numbers of people to get out and vote.
You can pledge to vote here. In partnership with GLAAD, the song will serve to be a vehicle for change and drive awareness for the GLAAD Vote with Pride program that looks to increase voter turnout.
