“‘Want Me’ allowed me to let out all the anger I was feeling after being manipulated by a boy I thought I could trust. It’s about finding out that all the promises that person made were false. Something I’d want listeners to take away is to never let someone make you feel lesser because of their own lies – and to always say how you feel.” – Stacey Kelleher
February 28, 2020 (New York, NY): Stacey Kelleher has released her new single, “Want Me,” a pop-rock-trap anthem about being emotionally manipulated by a love interest you thought could be trusted.
“Want Me” is driven by grungy guitars and haunting chimes throughout the entire track. Stacey’s distinctive raspy voice comes out as she relieves herself of the anger of being backstabbed and lied to into her lyrics. The process of creating “Want Me” started with the beat, which reflects the anger and almost-craziness of the feeling of being blindsided. From there, Alisse Laymac produced the single while Zachary Pennington mastered it in Los Angeles, California.
