Nashville-based Pop-Punk artist Taylor Acorn has shared new single, “Basement,” via OneRPM. Co-written by Taylor Acorn, Emma Lynn White and Dan Swank (All Time Low), “Basement” sets out to capture the “raw beauty that emerges from the depths of despair.” The song also “serves as a testament that things won’t always be as bad as they seem to be.”

The track arrives with an accompanying music video directed by Doltyn Snedden and filmed in Nashville, TN, that moves between scenes of group therapy sessions and vocal performances from Taylor.

Taylor Acorn shares:

I absolutely love this song! I wrote it with my really great friends Emma Lynn White and Dan Swank and we wrote it at a time where my life couldn’t possibly seem to get any worse (looking back now it wasn’t that bad) but it just felt like the negative energy just wouldn’t end. I think that feeling of hitting ‘rock bottom’ and wanting to be on the incline but still feeling incredibly lost is such a real thing. We put ourselves under so much pressure to never misstep, to never have a bad day or a bad year, but that’s the beauty of being human and so it’s just really important to share these feelings and times of struggle that I’ve had especially if there is someone out there who may be going through the same thing.

Last week, Taylor announced her Good Enough U.S. & Australia tour, marking her first full U.S. headlining run. Beginning in Tampa on April 11th at Crowbar, Taylor will visit over 20 cities across the U.S. including stops in New York, Boston, Nashville, Detroit, Seattle, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Dallas and more before wrapping up in Houston, TX on May 11th at the House of Blues Peacock Room.

Earlier this year, Taylor released her EP, Certified Depressant. Produced by Dan Swank, Andrew Pacheco and Phil Barnes (Sydney Sierota [Echosmith], Cassadee Pope, Smallpools), Certified Depressant finds Taylor sharing some of her personal struggles with “mental health, love, life and everything in between over these past few years.”
