          Bridgit Mendler to Release New Music

          Bridgit Mendler teamed up with the Floridian rapper Kaiydo for her latest release “Atlantis.”

          On Twitter Bridgit shared, “I wrote Atlantis frankly, about feeling numb after heartbreak because that’s what I was feeling that day we wrote it. Atlantis is a beautiful city that disappeared and was forgotten underwater. That is what it feels like to me to lose a first love. In the story, a remnant of that love is still haunting me even though it is ‘asleep with the fishes.’”

          On working with Kaiydo she shared, “Kaiydo is someone I became familiar with this year though researching different new artists on one of my favorite blogs, Pigeons and Planes. He is a talented fresh voice and he responded to the track so I thought he would be the perfect for a feature. I am exicted by what he added to the song! His lyrics match the tone of this story perfectly. Kaiydo you get meeeeeeee.”

          The track itself is set for release tomorrow, but you can check out the preview below for a taste of what we are getting.

          We’ll admit, it’s a little different than what we are used to with Bridgit, but we are so excited to hear it in full. We’re excited to see how she has grown as an artist.

          In 2012 she released “Hello My Name Is…” which included “Ready or Not” and “Hurricane.” Other tracks of hers which you may have heard include “Top of the World,” “Forgot to Laugh” and “Rocks at My Window.”
