Multicultural pop princess Neon Hitch is back to the grind this year with a promising debut album out this month. Neon released the lead single “Please” on Friday with the album pre-order (click here).
Since leaving Warner Bros. Records in 2014 following artistic differences and industry disorganization, Neon Hitch has held her head high and preached of freedom, independence, and peace. To her tribe of fans, she has appeared unstoppable — and she may be! But she doesn’t always feel like it.
On “Please,” Neon admits her insecurities and begs for understanding. “All I need, need is you to love me. Love me for who I am,” she sings on the track, which she wrote and produced herself. “Please, please, please, please don’t judge me,” she pleads.
Just be my lover, boy. Just be my friend.
Give me that realness, no need to pretend.
I’ve made mistakes, and I’ll do them again.
But if you love me, you’ll love who I am.
Knowing Neon, “Please” is likely symbolic of her persona on the new album. Fans will appreciate Neon’s freedom-loving lyrics and trademark vocals, but Anarchy is guaranteed to introduce listeners new and old to a more dimensional artist than can be seen in a single or EP.
Can Anarchy appeal to the average pop radio listener? It’s hard to tell from such a personal lead single, but that’s alright. Neon Hitch has never been predictable. If you can’t love her for the artist that she is, she doesn’t need your love at all.
