Following her recent performance of new single “Fire N Gold” on The Today Show rising star Bea Miller premiered her official video for the single, directed by Tim Mattia (Pharrel Williams, Jack White, Florence and The Machine) today on MTV.com.
The MTV Artist to Watch previously announced her debut album, Not An Apology, will be released on July 24 and will support Fifth Harmony this summer on the Reflection: The Summer tour. U.S. dates kick off July 15 in Louisville, KY, and will hit major cities across the U.S. including Atlanta, Nashville, Dallas, Phoenix, Denver and DC wrapping up in New York City at the Beacon Theater on Aug. 27. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased HERE.
“Fire N Gold,” has already sold over 125,000 copies while the lyric video has surpassed 3.3 million views.
Miller was recently featured in Teen Vogue’s music issue alongside Echosmith’s Sydney Sierota and Sweden’s Seinabo Say. Along with accolades from Rolling Stone and Billboard, Bea was one of only two artists chosen for Pandora’s #ThumbMoments (the other was Fallout Boy).
Not An Apology, follows Bea’s Young Blood EP (debuted #2 on the iTunes pop chart) and features several tracks co-written by Bea (including her debut single “Young Blood,” a darkly charged anthem that hit the Billboard Hot 100 soon after its April 2014 release), and mines her everyday experience for unapologetically honest lyrics about everything from bullying and backstabbers to isolation and breakup angst.
To capture the tension between toughness and vulnerability that propels much of Not An Apology, Bea teamed up with producers like busbee (P!nk, Kelly Clarkson), Jarrad Rogers (Icona Pop, Demi Lovato), Mike Del Rio (Kylie Minogue, Selena Gomez), and Matt Squire (Ariana Grande, Ke$ha) to craft a melody-fueled mix of gritty guitar riffs, fuzzed-out grooves, and awesomely heady beats.
**Not An Apology is available for pre-order at iTunes.
