Olivia Rodrigo shares debut single, ‘drivers license’

Sharing her debut single on Polydor Records, Olivia Rodrigo has unveiled the heartbreaking ‘drivers license’.

Penned last during lockdown last year, the heartbreaking, piano-driven, alt-pop number sees the singer invite us in as she deals with a breakup.

Recalling the story behind ‘drivers license’ Rodrigo says: “When I came up with ‘drivers license,’ I was going through a heartbreak that was so confusing to me, so multifaceted.

“Putting all those feelings into a song made everything seem so much simpler and clearer—and at the end of the day, I think that’s really the whole purpose of songwriting. There’s nothing like sitting at the piano in my bedroom and writing a really sad song. It’s truly my favorite thing in the world.”

Set to release her debut EP later this year, this is a first glimpse at what the seventeen-year-old singer is capable of.

‘drivers license’ is available to stream now.
