Title single from the 3 track EP, ‘California’, is Chappell Roan’s offering of delight and emphasis. An emphasis of love in expectations, and embracing of that fold of goodness that we can find in this world – within you – within them.
Out of struggles, comes new angles and dignified renewal of strength you’d never had. After moving from her small town in Missouri to the bright lights of Los Angeles, Chappell opens up about struggling to make the huge adjustment.
It’s about the external. But it’s always a test of your internal fortitude.
Within ‘California’, you can feel and see the coming of age goodness, as Chappell takes you on that significant journey of abstracts and utter realities.
‘California’ follows the release of ‘Love Me Anyway’ and its crafty DIY video created by Chappell herself.

California – OUT NOW! I am so incredibly homesick right now and this song matches how I’m feeling perfectly. I questioned everything I knew the second I moved to California . It was terrifying bc I felt very lost and alone. Although it was scary, I grew into a person I now love. I still struggle with feeling out of place and making friends in Los Angeles, but releasing music and knowing that I can help someone with my songs proves to me that I must keep pushing forward. I am so grateful to @dan_nigro for helping me write and finish this song and for pushing me to try something new with production. I absolutely adore it. Thank you @ethanseneker for shooting + editing the lyric video, @colorbyelliott for coloring, and @omargomezfilms for adding the lyrics. I hope you like it and I’m so happy it’s out after three years of struggling with this song. It’s finally here. Much love to all of you in this very hard time.💖 ps I’m going live at 5 pm pst to talk about the song and answer your questions. ☺️
