|PIC1|Pop artist Krystal Meyers' brand-new music video, Make Some Noise, the title-track from her upcoming, September 9, 2008 album release, premiered on Yahoo! (new.music.yahoo.com/videos/premieres/) on Thursday. It is expected to garner as many as 2-3 million impressions, along with 150,000 full streams of the video.
The clip was filmed in late April of 2008, in the 19-year-old's hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. Make Some Noise is Meyers' third studio album. The 10-track project, entirely written or co-written by Meyers, was recorded in Brentwood, Tennessee at Dutchland Studio, and was produced by Doubledutch (Mat Kearney, TobyMac).
"It's about getting out there and making a positive impact," shares Meyers, who has become a major pop star in Japan over the last couple of years. "Many people say that my generation is a dying generation; that we're hopeless and have nowhere to go, but I don't agree.
"I think people are more involved. We care about the environment, social justice, politics, those in need - we care about things that are making a difference in our world. It's important for us to make an impact, but the only way to make an impact is if you are loud about it. You can't just sit in a corner and be reserved. Live out loud! Make some noise!"
The four-time Dove Award nominee continues, "This music is fun and energetic and is going to be fun on stage. It's a different kind of energy. Some of the songs like 'S.O.S.' and 'My Freedom' are more guitar-driven, but there are other songs like 'Shine', the first radio single, that are totally 80s-inspired, fun, dance, pop/rock music. It's a diverse record that defines my different musical layers."
Make Some Noise comprises the following ten tracks (sequence subject to change): "Make Some Noise", "Love It Away", "Shine", "S.O.S.", "Feels So Right", "My Freedom", "Beautiful Tonight", "Up To You", "You'll Never Know", and "In Your Hands".
A beautiful young woman, always effortlessly fashionable, Meyers is almost an anomaly in today's culture. In a world where young artists seem to continually wind up as troubled tabloid fodder, she's a successful recording artist who is incredibly grounded and ever mindful of her platform as an influencer. She's equally comfortable appearing on the cover of Nylon Magazine (Japan) or speaking to young girls on the Revolve tour, an outing she's looking forward to this fall.
Meyers first burst on the scene with her self-titled Essential Records debut in 2005, spawning her breakthrough hit "Anticonformity", a song she wrote at camp before entering ninth grade. Her debut set spawned four top ten singles and also launched her career abroad. Her sophomore album, Dying For a Heart, solidified Meyers' stature as one of the top artists in Christian music - earning her a second Dove nomination in the female vocalist of the year category and boosting her audience overseas, earning her major pop star status in Japan. Meyers has performed before more than 400,000 people, and will be part of the Fall 2008, 16-city Revolve Arena Tour.
