Cam Releases New Single ‘Diane’ From Sophomore Project Today

Cam has released the debut single, “Diane,” from her upcoming 2018 sophomore album on Arista Nashville/RCA Records. The new song was written and produced by the team behind Cam’s Platinum-selling No. 1, “Burning House,” Jeff Bhasker and Tyler Johnson.

Inspired by the storyline of Dolly Parton’s classic “Jolene,” the driving track delivers a tale of love, regret and commiseration.

“‘Diane’ is my response to Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene,’ said Cam about the new tune. “It’s the apology so many spouses deserve, but never get. The other woman is coming forward to break the news to the wife about an affair, respecting her enough to have that hard conversation, once she realized he was married. Because everyone should be able to decide their own path in life, based on the truth. Women especially should do this for each other, since our self-worth can still be so wrapped up in our partners.  And in true country fashion, I’ve set the whole raw story to upbeat music, so you can dance while you process it all.”

As part of the excitement surrounding the single release, Cam will perform “Diane” and other songs as part of a 30-minute Facebook Live stream event at 11 a.m. CT, on Oct. 31, with the performance originating from an intimate music space in Sony Music Nashville’s office. Cam’s performance can be streamed here.

The busy entertainer is about to launch her Best Coast Tour, headlining nine West Coast dates beginning November 28, and she also co-penned the song “Palace” with Sam Smith and Tyler Johnson on Smith’s forthcoming album, The Thrill of It All, due out Nov. 3. She also contributed background vocals and electric guitar to the track.
