Tate McRae shares ‘slower’, announces new EP ‘too young to be sad’


Future festival headliner Tate McRae has shared her second powerful pop single of 2021. Tate’s instantly recognisable voice takes centre stage on ‘slower’, as she showcases more of her vulnerable, self-reflective songwriting.

Playing cool makes me lose my mind
I can’t be someone I don’t recognize
I’m not the type to have to say it twice
Or wait for you ’til the end of the night
