“’As Cool As You Try’ is probably more relevant now than ever, since identity is where we’re at now. There’s no longer that one thing that makes you cool. You just have to feel cool yourself and you’re cool.”– Melissa Etheridge
Last Friday, Iconic Grammy and Academy award winning singer/songwriter Melissa Etheridge released the third single – ‘As Cool As You Try’ – from her upcoming album. The video was co-directed by Lisa Eaton and Ayesha Orange, and features Melissa going back to her roots. “The video is fun. The inspiration comes from my days long, long ago when I played in the bars so we wanted to capture that,” says Etheridge.
‘As Cool As You Try’ is one of nine tracks written by Etheridge in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s that never made it on one of her albums. Fans will finally get a glimpse to who Melissa was then when she releases ‘One Way Out’ on September 17, 2021 via BMG. Pre-order is available now.
Etheridge has also confirmed a UK tour in support of the new album in 2022. All tour dates and additional info can be found at MelissaEtheridge.com.
