Today, critically acclaimed trailblazer UPSAHL releases her new single “Time of my Life,” an introspective anthem off her debut album due out this October on Arista Records. The pensive track’s melodic hook and punchy chorus put UPSAHL’s addictive sound and songwriting prowess front and center.
Directed by George Gallardo Kattah, the playful video juxtaposes present-day UPSAHL with a younger version of herself, allowing moments of childhood nostalgia to manifest in the now. Raw and vulnerable, UPSAHL invites viewers to tag along as she wonders, “How come all the worst days are in the time of my life?”
Of the song, UPSAHL explains, “I wrote “Time of my Life” about being the happiest I’ve ever been, while simultaneously being the saddest I’ve ever been. I’m at a place in my life where I feel like the highs are really really high, but on the flip side, it makes the impact of the lows even lower. The day we wrote this song, I had the line: “How come all the worst days are in the time of my life?” dancing around in my head… So we ended up making that the chorus and building the rest of the song around it.”
