phem has released a new collab with Waterparks’ Awsten Knight

phem has unveiled a brand-new single featuring Waterparks
frontman Awsten Knight.

Having previously toured the U.S. and Europe with the trio, the
alt.pop star has now recruited singer Awsten for a song called cheerleader – and phem explains that the track is an “anthem” that “tells it like
it really is”.

“cheerleader is the song that encourages you to keep going, and
give yourself a little credit for never giving up,” phem reveals. “I’ve always
had to be my biggest cheerleader… especially during my darkest moments. The
moments only I could pull myself out of. This song is for all the people who
dropped off. Who left me to pick up the pieces and figure it out by myself.
It’s all good. I’m doing even better without you.”

Speaking about working with Awsten, phem adds: “It came together
pretty organically. I posted a snippet of me singing the song on my Insta and
then Awsten hit me up about it… he said he really liked it… which was like the
biggest compliment in the world. Waterparks had already had me on both their U.S.
and European tour, so it was cool to finally make some art together.

“He’s unbelievable in so many ways. I really look up to him as
an artist and songwriter… he inspires me to push myself and keep improving. He’s
the real deal… it’s an honour to have him on my song.”
