Cassadee Pope is boldly reclaiming her throne in pop-punk with the release of her latest venture “Almost There.” Marking her second new release of 2023 following “People That I Love Leave,” which Pope recently performed at the idobi Studios in LA, “Almost There” presents a juxtaposing feel compared to her previous single release. “Almost There” delves into a more sensual side of Pope’s songwriting that she’s previously left untapped.

Co-written by Pope, alongside renowned talents Nick Furlong (credited for work with blink-182, 5 Seconds Of Summer, and Papa Roach) and Christina Galligan (affiliated with gnash and aespa), the song invites listeners on a thrilling journey of self-discovery and intimacy with a cherished partner. Embodying a moody and seductive vibe, the track and accompanying music video masterfully portray Pope‘s exploration of self-assurance in her own body and the thrill of embarking on profound experiences with a deeply-connected partner.

“I think a lot of us are taught from an early age that indulging our desires is shameful and not ladylike,” Pope shares of the single. “It was only when I started to shed that shame and embrace my sensual nature that I began feeling like myself. For this song, I wanted to let people see a side of me they haven’t seen before and validate them in their own desires.”

Across the moody, dimly-lit video, Pope showcases the intimacy and empowerment that is so effortlessly injected into her latest offering. Through lyrics such as, “Who says love was meant to be so innocent?/I love misbehaving/Bad things are fun when we’re naked/Pull my hair to show you care/I’m almost there,” Pope exudes confidence and finesse in herself, her sexuality, and acts as a feminist anthem for taking control of your own pleasure.
