No more waiting, no more mysteries: new Betty Who music is here!
After leaving fans in suspense for the last few days, we can finally announce that the mysterious #ILYAF is indeed a new single from the Aussie songstress, but it may not be what you were expecting.
The single, surprisingly, is a cover of the 1996 Donna Lewis hit “I Love You Always Forever” and it’s the perfect fit for Betty. The mid-tempo track is positively upbeat with the same bright, hopeful spirit that all of Betty’s songs give off. As always, just one listen will put a smile on your face. Her soft vocals are the perfect addition to the track — it truly sounds like this was written just for her.
Here’s hoping the album announcement comes next! You can get “I Love You Always Forever” on iTunes.
EDIT: Betty revealed to SPIN Magazine that “I Love You Always Forever” is not the album’s lead single, but instead a treat for her loyal fans.
“I am a little worried about people thinking this is the first single [for the new album],” she says, making it clear that it is not. “I’m such a writer. I’m such an artiste that I’m so concerned about putting out my story specifically, and this is Donna’s story. For me, it’s redirected attention, wanting to go, ‘Hey guys, I promise I’m not dead.”
