Up-and-coming pop star Sabrina Carpenter has just released a new single called “Paris,” a taste of what’s to come on her upcoming two-part album, Singular.
The 19-year-old has taken her sound in exciting new directions with each release. “Paris” keeps that trend going in a big way, kicking off with a surf guitar line that wouldn’t be out of place on a Lana Del Rey track.
Carpenter confesses her conflicted feelings about a man in Los Angeles, and decides on a plan to find clarity: “So I took myself where I think I should be / Someone told me that he’s waiting here for me / Parisian nights, Parisian hot, Parisian breeze.”
But it turns out she might not have needed the city of love, after all. “It’s so romantic in Paris / Won’t even try to compare,” she sings on the chorus. “Thought I was sure that I’d find it / But I already have love in LA.”
Guess you don’t need to go all the way to Paris to find love, but if it leads to an amazing song like this, it’s probably worth a visit anyway. Check it out below:
