Neon Hitch is far from being a man of the law.
Whether she's working with label Warner Bros. Records on her upcoming debut album, due for release later this year; releasing her own independent mixtapes such as the recent 301 To Paradise; or collaborating on hits for other artists (she co-wrote Ke$ha's 'Blah Blah Blah' and is probably best known as the vocalist on Gym Class Heroes' 'Ass Back Home'), Hitch adds a splash of gypsy magic to everything she touches, often resulting in unexpectedly introspective tracks that often tread the line between infectious dance-pop jams and reflective musings on her past.
Check out our exclusive interview with her below to learn about her current relationship with her label, the fate of debut album Beg, Borrow & Steal and an unexpected potential career in acting...
Hiya Neon! We hope you're doing well today. We wanted to start by asking how your music and your relationship with your label has evolved as you prepare to release your forthcoming LP later this year.
Executives at the label have changed quite a few times over the years so it's been a lot of cultivating new relationships and elbowing my way to the front of the line.
If you had to pick one song from the Beg, Borrow & Steal recording sessions that you wish your fans would've had the opportunity to hear, which song would you pick and why?
I'm going to keep 'Hello' because it tells my story and the instrumentation is beautiful.
Recently, at the Sundance Film Festival, you mentioned plans to venture into acting. What would be your dream role to play?
I would love to play a role similar to Lucille Ball in I Love Lucy.
What can we expect from you in the coming year? Will we be hearing new music from you any time soon?
You can always expect to hear new music from me, whether I release it officially through a label or on the internet.
Neon, thanks for making time for a very revealing interview!
