Callista Clark is giving fans a sneak preview of her upcoming debut full-length album Real To Me: The Way I Feel, with the release of a brand new track, “Sad,” out today.
Penned by the rising vocalist with Sarah Buxton and Jimmy Robbins, the young woman in “Sad” is not at all broken up about her recent breakup. “‘Sad’ is one of my favorite songs that I’ve ever written,” explains Clark. “It’s super lighthearted and perfect for summer. I wanted the lyrics of this song to be fun and sarcastic–the exact opposite of how I was feeling while going through a heartbreak. Manifesting not being sad.”
Due out Oct. 14 via Big Machine Records, the new album expands her previously-released Real To Me collection to 10 tracks. Produced by Nathan Chapman, Clark’s debut features songs co-written by Clark with Emily Shackelton, Jonathan Singleton, Chris DeStefano, Liz Rose, and more.
“I couldn’t be more excited to share that my first album ever is coming out Oct. 14! I have been waiting so long and trying my best to get all the new songs as perfect as I can. The Real to Me era is not over yet! Can’t wait for y’all to hear it,” she adds.
Clark continues to make strides as one of country’s hottest newcomers. Billboard has featured her two years in a row on their annual “21 Under 21” list, and she was the youngest member ever named to CMT’s Next Women of Country in the 2022 class.
