Produced by Heavy, the track signals a moment of evolution for the Arizona-born singer and songwriter as she delivers her first proper love song… with a twist, of course.
On “Knew You,” she said, “I’ve finally allowed myself to start writing love songs and about relationships. I never indulged in this style before. I’d just gotten into a relationship where I was constantly writing about love and that dynamic. I was super playful, but honest. I’m being really open.”
“Knew You” sets the stage for more music and other surprises to come from Kailee Morgue in the near future.
After quietly establishing herself as an iconoclastic force with 60 million streams and widespread acclaim by everyone from The New York Times to Highsnobiety, the Phoenix-based siren unearths a torrent of intense emotions in 2020.
A three-year journey from a part-time job slinging fast food to emerging as a subversive pop wunderkind allowed the 21-year-old to do so.
Along the way, she unveiled a series of fan favorite anthems, beginning with the breakthrough “Medusa” [7.6 million Spotify streams], “Siren” [8.2 million Spotify streams], “Do You Feel This Way” [feat. Whethan] [6.7 million Spotify streams] and “What The Hell Happened To Us” [24.2 million Spotify streams] from Quinn XCII’s The Story of Us.
Not to mention, she attracted tastemaker praise from The FADER, NYLON, Pigeons & Planes, PAPER, Vice’s i-D and Teen Vogue. Between packing houses coast-to-coast on tour, she joined forces with Hayley Kiyoko on the 2019 single “Headcase.”
In addition to tallying 2.6 million Spotify streams, Ones To Watch pegged it as “an Early Contender for 2019’s Best Pop Moment,” and Billboard dubbed it, “a dreamy trip through the 20-year-old’s mind.” Along the way, she sharpened the edge of her signature sound with a powerful progression hinted at by “Knew You” and more to come.
