“No You Didn’t” will appear on her debut album
Colorado-bred singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Sophia Scott premieres her fierce and fun-loving new single “No You Didn’t.” An up-close-and-personal look at the aftermath of a wild night out, the no-regrets anthem is the latest release from her forthcoming debut album Barstool Confessions, due out via Empire on October 20th.
Co-written by Scott, Sam Derosa (Fitz and the Tantrums, Pentatonix), and Josh Murty (Maggie Lindemann, Niko Moon), “No You Didn’t” takes all the shame out of post-party remorse. As she details the “champagne mistakes” made and “dirty damage” done the night before, the Nashville-based artist spins a hilariously real portrait of an epic hangover (“I’m wearing lashes with glasses/Swigging Listerine in the car”). But thanks to her ingenious mix of humor, heart, and good-natured bravado, Scott ultimately turns the tongue-in-cheek but brutally self-aware track into an anthem of unlikely glory (from the sing-along-ready chorus: “I’m a real hot mess in my Sunday best and I’m smelling like bad decisions”).
Produced by Murty and recorded at his Los Angeles studio, “No You Didn’t” brings Scott’s brazen truth-telling to a hard-hitting backdrop of twangy guitar tones, potent beats, and swaggering stomp-and-clap percussion. Along with spotlighting the sheer strength and magnetism of Scott’s unforgettable voice, the track’s high-energy production amplifies its playful spirit with plenty of carefree gang vocals. The result: undeniable proof of the power in forgiving your own messy behavior, granting every listener permission to live regret-free and laugh at their misadventures.
Like all tracks of the album, “No You Didn’t” finds Scott fully leaning into her imperfections and speaking her truth without fear. The follow-up to her acclaimed debut EP One Of These Days. Barstool Confessions marks a bold leap forward for one of country’s most exciting new stars as she responds in real-time to the challenges of heartbreak. With its track list encompassing everything from tear-soaked ballads to night-out anthems, the album brings her genre-blurring musicality to a one-of-a-kind sound inspired by ’90s country-pop, throwback soul music, southern rock, and more. But no matter what form her songs take, Scott infuses every moment with her nuanced yet gutsy vocal performance and uncompromising emotional honesty.
Reaching yet another bucket list milestone in her career, Scott will celebrate the album by making her Grand Ole Opry debut on release day.
Recorded in Nashville, Los Angeles, and Vail, Colorado, Barstool Confessions also features the scorching lead single “Boots, Jeans, & Jesus” — a July release.
