ELIO refuses to be ‘Typecast’ with her latest single

The newtrack is "about being put in a category of what you are, and what you can do".

ELIO has returned with a new single, ‘Typecast’.

Talking about the new track, she explains: “‘Typecast’ really sets the tone for my new era. It’s about being put in a category of what you are, and what you can do. I feel like artists get put in a box so much, of how much they’re allowed to change and how much they should stay the same. I do it so much as a fan of other artists, but know how limiting it can feel as an artist myself.

“While writing the new music I just wanted to create stuff that felt right, no matter how different it was from my previous releases, but I found myself being reluctant because of how people view me as an artist, and how people have connected to the type of songs I have out. ‘Typecast’ was me having to go in a completely different direction in order to move on and grow as an artist.”
