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.
