August 18, 2023 – Today, acclaimed singer-songwriter Reneé Rapp releases her highly anticipated, emotionally raw debut album Snow Angel. The 12-track release boasts a dynamic blend of soulful ballads and undeniable pop hits, culminating in an impressive showcase of vocal versatility and songwriting talent.

Included in today’s release is the anthemic lead single “Pretty Girls”, a punchy, upbeat record that draws fans in with its spine-tingling beat and punching hooks. The accompanying music video, directed by Cara Delevingne, is a cinematically stunning visual representation of both the nostalgic thrill and anxious uncertainty of falling in love. Portraying the love interest opposite Rapp is model Scarlett Leithold.

Rapp has been on an undeniable hot streak as of lately, coming off 2 recent MTV VMA nominations in the Best New Artist and PUSH Performance of the year categories. Earlier this week, she was announced as the latest artist to join RADAR, Spotify’s marquee emerging artist program dedicated to spotlighting emerging artists around the world. Rapp also just launched her exclusive Apple Music Radio Show titled “Angel Hour”, a six episode deep dive into the making of "Snow Angel". Listen to the first episode featuring Alexander 23 here.
Also included on the album is the stunning title track. “I’ll make it through the winter if it kills me, I can make it faster if I hurry," Rapp belts over delicately played piano. “An angel in the snow
until I’m worthy, but if it kills me, I tried.” Rapp’s vulnerable admissions are punctuated by
swelling instrumentals as the song progresses. Other highlights include “The Wedding Song,” a slithering sensation that transforms into a towering ballad in which she belts out: “You were my one who set my world on fire. I know there’s heaven but we must be higher.” Also featured on the album is “23,” a typically unfiltered tearjerker that beautifully captures the rising star’s unbridled talent. Snow Angel was produced with Alexander 23 (Olivia Rodrigo, Tate McRae), who Rapp first collaborated with on “Bruises,” a track about the cost of putting on a brave face for everyone else’s benefit.

ABOUT RENEÉ RAPP:
Reneé Rapp knew she was born to perform ever since she was a child. Even in her earliest memories, her love of music was always present. “I couldn't sit still in the car unless there was music,” she says. “Otherwise, I would cry the entire time.” The North Carolina native began harnessing her natural creativity by writing and recording songs when she was just a teenager. Eventually, her career took off when she landed the coveted role of Regina George in the Tony-nominated Mean Girls musical on Broadway. Shortly after, she found widespread recognition and praise—from the likes of W, Harper’s Bazaar, and The Hollywood Reporter for her performance as Leighton on the HBO Max series The Sex Lives of College Girls written by Mindy Kaling. Rapp then turned her attention back to music, sharing her threadbare insecurities on debut single “Tattoos.” Since then, her songs have caught on like wildfire with listeners. The multi-hyphenate's entire debut headline tour sold out in a matter of minutes, her inspiring single “Too Well” has impacted the Top 40, and her discography has amassed over 200 million streams and counting. Not only that, she will be reprising the role of Regina George in the forthcoming Paramount+ feature adaptation of the Broadway musical Mean Girls. Rapp's 2022 debut EP Everything to Everyone, as well as its deluxe edition, firmly established her pop staying power, while her debut LP, Snow Angel, is an elevated showcase the hitmaker's vulnerable approach to songwriting and stunning vocal range.
