Olivia Rodrigo, the GRAMMY®-winning, multi-Platinum recording artist, announced today that her new single “vampire” will be released on June 30th.

The former Disney star made the announcement on social media. Rodrigo’s Instagram post has received over 40,000 comments (see below).

The 20-year-old singer-songwriter wrote the song with producer Daniel Nigro, who also worked with her on Rodrigo’s debut studio album, SOUR. “vampire,” the first new music from the record-breaking young artist since the May 2021 release of SOUR, is the sound of an artist firmly in control, imbued with a sense of maturity and bold confidence.

Rodrigo continues to write with unflinching honesty, which has won her fans over since the release of her breakthrough single “drivers license” in January 2021. The song debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and went on to become the first song in history to receive 80 million Spotify streams in seven days.

Now certified 5x Platinum in the U.S., “drivers license” also resonated on a global level, topping the charts in numerous countries. The triple Platinum “deja vu” and 4x Platinum, Billboard Hot 100-topping “good 4 u” followed in the leadup to the release of her first full-album.

SOUR debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and went on to become the longest-running debut album in the top ten of the twenty-first century—and the first to spend an entire year in the top ten. The album also debuted at No. 1 in the United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Norway, Holland, Sweden, Australia, and New Zealand.

SOUR debuted with the most U.S. audio streams for a female debut album ever and broke the record for the most-streamed album in a week by a female artist on Spotify. It is now 4x Platinum in the United States, has sold over 17 million albums worldwide, and has received over 40 billion streams. The album’s 11 tracks have all received RIAA certification and have charted in the top 30 of Billboard’s Hot 100, making Rodrigo the first female artist to chart 11 or more songs in the top 30 at the same time.

Rodrigo received seven GRAMMY® Award nominations, including nominations in all four of the Big Four categories, and won Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Pop Solo Performance at the 64th GRAMMY® Awards.

She was named New Artist of the Year at the American Music Awards, Woman of the Year at Billboard’s 2022 Women in Music Awards, and Songwriter of the Year at both the ASCAP Pop Music Awards and Variety Hitmakers.

Rodrigo has also won seven Billboard Music Awards, a Brit, a Juno, and an NME Award, and her documentary “Olivia Rodrigo: driving home 2 u (a SOUR film)” was named Best Music Documentary at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards. She embarked on her first-ever world tour in 2022, a sold-out trek that took her to over 40 cities across North America and Europe.

Rodrigo has ascended to the pinnacle of pop by focusing on intimate storytelling, crafting iconic choruses, and effortlessly building a passionate fandom. Her music has become an essential part of the soundtrack to this era. She is about to embark on an exciting new chapter with “vampire.”
