Cassadee Pope Is Almost There

GRAMMY®-nominated, Platinum-certified singer-songwriter, Cassadee Pope, has shared her brand new single Almost There. Co-written by PopeNick Furlong (blink-182, 5 Seconds of Summer, Papa Roach) and Christina Galligan (Gnash, Aespa) and produced by Furlong, Almost There shows a different side of Pope that she’s never explored before with her songwriting. The track is a bold and sensual song that encapsulates feeling comfortable in your own body and the thrill of delving into new experiences with a partner you care deeply about.

Speaking of the track, Pope shares: “I think a lot of us are taught from an early age that indulging our desires is shameful and not ladylike. It was only when I started to shed that shame and embrace my sensual nature that I began feeling like myself. For this song, I wanted to let people see a side of me they haven’t seen before and validate them in their own desires.”

Directed by Ed Pryor (Dierks Bentley, Mickey Guyton, The War and Treaty), an accompanying music video for the track has also been shared. The low-lit, in-the-mood music video plays off the sensual themes of the song itself. Watch it below:

Earlier this year, Cassadee Pope made her triumphant return to pop-punk, following years pursuing music in the Country Music genre with her single People That I Love Leave. Having started her career as the frontwoman of beloved, pop-punk band, Hey Monday, People That I Love Leave marked a return to form for Cassadee.

Co-written by Pope, Ali Tamposi (Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, Kelly Clarkson), Roman Campolo (Elton John, BTS), Nick Long (Machine Gun Kelly, Avril Lavigne) and Andrew Luce (Iann Dior, Role Model) and produced by Cassadee, Dan Swank, Mason SacksHosu Yoon and Luce, the high-energy track is paired with emotionally charged lyrics about being afraid of fully letting love in after having been through so much heartbreak.

Following the release, the 33-year-old shared two additional versions of the track. The first featuring rising, pop singer-songwriter, JAX. Combined with Pope, JAX‘s captivating vocals breathe new life to the already high-energy track about being afraid of fully letting love in after having been through so much heartbreak. The second version of the track is a remix by Will Weinbach, that pairs Cassadee’s striking vocals and powerful lyrics with a pulsing dance beat. Recently, People That I Love Leave was added to TikTok’s Pop Music playlist, landing in the top 5 among the company of tracks by Olivia Rodrigo, Charli XCX, Kim Petras, beabadoobee and more.

Over the last 15 years, Cassadee Pope has been a lot of things to a lot of people: leader of seminal pop-punk band Hey Monday. Season 3 winner of The Voice. Platinum-selling (Wasting All These Tears), GRAMMY®-nominated (Think of You, a duet with Chris Young) country singer/songwriter. Ally and activist pushing for social change and a brighter future in a backward world.

But through it all – the Warped Tour parking lots, tours with Fall Out Boy and Yellowcard, CMT Awards and chart-topping singles – she’s always remained fearlessly, unapologetically herself. Now, Pope returns with her most joyously authentically statement yet, effortlessly sliding into the ebullient pop-punk sound that defined the late ’00s with unbridled energy, sugar pill melodies and away message-ready wordplay.

Now, with a tremendous sense of freedom guiding her and a forthcoming album set to once again amplify her confessional writing and redefine her place as a pop-punk mainstay, the future’s open wide in ways she previously thought impossible – leaving no doubt she’s exactly where she’s meant to be.
