“Drive” exudes spontaneity, as Valerie sings of breaking free from her normal routine and hitting the road with her love interest in search of “something wild.” It follows the release of “Wildflowers”—a song that speaks of a crossroads in a relationship, with Valerie assuring her partner even in bad times, their love is still blooming—and “Iris”—a captivating rendition of the Goo Goo Dolls classic. All three songs will be featured on Voyager, which presents Valerie’s own brand of cinematic space pop uplifted by otherworldly vocals, vivid lyrics and expansive vision.

On the inspiration behind the song, Valerie shares, “Drive” was written in the height of summer 2020 when I was desperate for an escape from lockdown. Lena Leon and I got together over Zoom and just put all of that longing for a summer road trip into a song. This is for those times when it doesn’t really matter where you’re going, it just matters who you’re with and that you’re out exploring together.”

Boasting over 500 million streams to date, Valerie’s dynamic vocals and emotionally charged songwriting can also be heard in massive smash collaborations such as Kygo’s “Think About You” and “The Truth” as well as hundreds of film, television and video game placements including the 2019 League of Legends theme “Awaken” with Ray Chen and programming on NETFLIX, The CW, ABC, Prime Video, SyFy, HBO and more.

In May, Valerie collaborated with ILLENIUM and Nurko on the track “Sideways,” which she wrote as an ode to a friend who was struggling with mental health during the pandemic. It debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot Dance / Electronic Songs chart and has been streamed more than 20 million times.

Stay tuned for more news from Valerie soon.
