Olivia O’Brien Releases New Single “Empty” – Listen Now

Olivia O’Brien has released a new single!

Known to millions worldwide after her smash collaboration with gnash on her self-composed RIAA gold hit “i hate u i love u,” the Island Records recording artist is gracing us with a new song and video on Friday (February 17). 

“I wrote ‘Empty’ when I was at my lowest,” said Olivia.  “I had just moved to LA and was kind of lost in life. I didn’t feel like I fit in with my new friends but my old friends were moving on in their lives without me. I let myself wallow in my depression for months, letting it get worse and worse and not telling anyone until I started feeling like every aspect of my life was tragic and hopeless.”

“Finally, when I started writing this song in a studio session I broke down and told the producer how I had been feeling. It was a very emotional day but I came out of it feeling so much better about everything and knowing I had just written my most vulnerable, emotional, and real song yet.”

“Empty,” Olivia’s fifth release since her signing to Island Records was announced last August, follows up “hate u love u,” “Trust Issues” (over 3 million streams); “Find What You’re Looking For” (over 4 million streams); and “Root Beer Float” (featuring blackbear).
