Kate Voegele is gearing up for the release of her next single — which is not on her debut album, “Don’t Look Away.”
Rather, the MySpace Records standard-bearer will premiere the Diane Warren-penned “You Can’t Break a Broken Heart” on a November episode of CW’s “One Tree Hill,” in which she has a recurring role as musician Mia, and then release the song on a deluxe edition of “Don’t Look Away” timed to the show.
“It seemed like kind of a fun, unexpected thing to do,” Voegele tells Billboard.com. “I can’t think of a better place or better people to debut a new single with. I love that everybody I work with is so unconventional with the way they approach an artist’s career. Everybody’s up for doing things kind of out of the box, which is really, really encouraging ’cause the only way you can make things work in this business now is to have ideas and be open to new ideas.”
And although Voegele writes her own material, she says she’s stoked to be adding a Warren song to her catalog.
“She approached me and wants me to sing the song,” Voegele reports. “Diane Warren is, like, my hero. Looking at the catalog of songs she’s written is overwhelming.”
Voegele says she and MySpace are still determining what else will be included with the deluxe edition of “Don’t Look Away,” sifting through outtakes, live recordings and video material. “There’s a million options at this point,” she says. “There’ll definitely be some fun bonus songs that haven’t been released, and maybe some footage.”
