“Maybe it’s us or maybe I’m just / Falling in love with California,” Springsteen muses with a gold rush of conflicted emotions. Co-written and co-produced by the 20-year-old on-the-rise talent, who also contributes the ringing acoustic guitar, “California” credits Jerry Flowers (Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood) and Jared Keim (Rascal Flatts, Restless Road) as both her co-writers and co-producers. The electro-roots knockout offers a breathtaking view of in-the-moment passion on the PCH – but is she captivated by the state of her heart, or just the state itself? “Sometimes you get so beautifully lost in a moment that the lines around love get blurry,” Springsteen shares. “Is it the person? Is it the place? Or is it the way everything around you collides in the most beautiful way for a minute? When I was recording this song and shooting this video, I hoped it would take people back to whatever that moment was for them.” Premiered exclusively with ET Online this morning (5/14), the official music video for “California” depicts the dreamy, sun-kissed soul of the song, as filmed along the picturesque coast. “‘California’ is just as much about the connection between two people as it is the connection between a person and a place,” Springsteen revealed to ET Online. “In order to capture the essence of this song, we knew we had to physically be there.” Alana Springsteen - “California”

ABOUT ALANA SPRINGSTEEN: For 20-year-old emerging singer-songwriter Alana Springsteen, it’s always been about storytelling. “She writes with beyond-her-years poise,” Rolling Stone praises, “mixing the lovestruck giddiness of a teenager with the hooks of a pro.” Picking up the guitar at seven and writing her first song by age nine, the Virginia Beach native felt the pull of Music City with every new lyric she wrote, making an official move at 14 and landing a publishing deal almost immediately. Recently releasing summertime stunner “California” and got-to-have-you anthem “Trying Not To (feat. Roman Alexander),” Pandora's 2021 Country Artist to Watch has surpassed 25 MILLION on-demand streams in just over a year. “Alana Springsteen is a name you'll want to know in country music,” hails PEOPLE, as she’s set to blaze her own trail in honor of the iconic Country women she grew up listening to – Shania Twain, Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, and Taylor Swift. Signed to Eighteen Company in partnership with SB Projects, Springsteen is also Ryan Seacrest Foundation’s newest Celebrity Ambassador.
