Australian songstress Gretta Ray returns to the spotlight with her latest single ‘Don’t Date The Teenager,’ offering a heartfelt exploration of heartbreak and growth ahead of her highly anticipated album release, Positive Spin.

Australian singer-songwriter Gretta Ray is back with her latest single, “Don’t Date The Teenager,” offering a candid take on a failed relationship. The song is a compelling exploration of heartbreak and growth, showcasing Gretta’s emotive and classic pop sensibilities. Part of her upcoming album, the track has been released via EMI Australia/Ditto Music.

Gretta explains:

“Pop music has been such a therapeutic, rewarding safe space for me over the years. You can take a heavy topic, add some synths and some uplifting call-and-response harmonies, and gradually, the heavy topic is transformed into a catchy, fun, and healing bop, lifting you up instead of pulling you further down into that awful, weighty feeling. I’ve always seen ‘Don’t Date The Teenager’ as this metaphorical hand that could possibly help pull someone out of that emotional quicksand, especially due to the juxtaposition of the production and the deep self-reflection within the lyrics. It is definitely the most honest I’ve ever been in a song, but the honesty I hope, will amplify the importance of the message.”

‘Don’t Date The Teenager’ is out now. New album Positive Spin is out on August 18th via EMI Australia / Ditto Music.
