The rising songstress also announces her debut EP Hands On The Wheel slated for release on May 5
Sony Music Nashville artist Karley Scott Collins shares the next piece of her artistry with “Brain On Love” available everywhere now. A bluesy, moody vocal laced over shimmering electric guitar riffs, “Brain on Love” creates a juxtaposition that goes hand in hand with the elements of a true fixation during a new relationship. Whether it’s healthy or not – the dependency and cravings for most are real. The emotive and vintage track was written by Collins with Summer Overstreet, Cameron Bartolini, and Liam Kevany and produced by Dann Huff.
“I got the idea for this song after reading an article about how scientists had proven that the chemical reactions your brain has when you’re falling in love are virtually identical to the ones people have on drugs,” shares Collins about the song’s inspiration. “Being in love completely rewires your brain to the point where everything reminds you of that person and it’s all you can think about. It keeps you up at night, you can’t eat, all you wanna do is see that person again. We had a lot of fun writing this one. I love the colorful imagery and the rock edge this song has.”
Collins also announces her major label debut project, Hands On The Wheel, which will be out everywhere on Friday, May 5. Backed by Sony Music Nashville, CAA and Warner Chappell Music – Collins is prepared to share her heart, her unique talent and five songs that she knows her growing fanbase will adore. Already hailed “a star in the making” by Country Swag, this 23-year-old channels a unique vintage vibe while engaging a fresh, younger fanbase. Keep up with Collins on Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, YouTube, and her website.
ABOUT KARLEY SCOTT COLLINS:
When Karley Scott Collins moved to Nashville from her hometown of Lake City, Fla., she arrived armed with her words – turns of phrase she’d fallen in love with, stories told to her by friends and family, and lyrics she’d jotted down in notebooks since she was 12. It’s Karley’s rich and emotionally soulful voice – an instrument that toes the line between wide-eyed wonder and world-weary knowledge – that anchors their messages. At their focal points, her songs are wrapped in lush instrumentation, neatly folding in her myriad musical influences like The Eagles, Stevie Nicks, Leonard Cohen, and Willie Nelson. Backed by Warner Chappell Publishing and Sony Nashville, her debut releases, “Heavenly” and “Tattoos,” struck a chord with critics upon release, and her latest offerings “Brain on Love” and “Petty in the 80s” are available now. With her debut EP Hands on the Wheel set for release May 5, the 23-year-old upstart is all but assured to land with a seismic impact in the months ahead.
