Fast Tracked: We just can’t take Betty Who’s advice on ‘Ignore Me’



Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

“The best thing you can do is just to ignore me.” That’s the advice given out by Betty Who on her new single, today’s “Ignore Me.” Of course, we realize the former Bostonian and Berklee alum is speaking here to a former lover she’s walking away from, and for that we’re relieved, because it’s hard to ignore Betty Who when she’s at her pop finest. This new track will mark the Australian singer’s first independent song in five years, so there are more than a few layers to the lyrical content. “Every decision made was mine, every detail was agonised over, and every last bit of my heart is in this song,” she writes online. “I can finally put out music the way I’ve always wanted to: straight from me to you. If I’m being honest, this is a totally unknown and terrifying time for me. While being exciting, of course, it is very much uncharted territory and my biggest fear is that I will let you beautiful humans down. But I’ve never let fear dictate the choices I’ve made or hold me back from something I have wanted to do since I was five years old, so why start now?” Betty Who has two upcoming shows in Boston, a March 15 date at The Paradise Rock Club and then a more intimate club date the next night (March 16) at Brighton Music Hall in Allston. Both shows are sold out, obviously.
