Betty Who – real name: Jessica Newham – the rising pop singer from Australia promised to her fans that she would be releasing a follow-up to her four-song debut ‘The Movement’ at the beginning of 2014 and she will be doing exactly that. The ‘Somebody Loves You’ singer is set to premiere ‘Slow Dancing’ – her first release via new label RCA Records – on April 8, 2014 and the amazing lead single, titled ‘Heartbreak Dream’ will be out on February 18, 2014.

In addition to the latest release, Who will be embarking on a headlining tour in the United States, which is scheduled to kick off on March 22, 2014 in Philadelphia and Zak Waters and Cardiknox have been announced as the openers on the upcoming trek. The 22-year-old singer finalized a deal with RCA Records in the fall 2013 and has been previewing songs from ‘Slow Dancing’ – including ‘Giving Me Away’, ‘Heartbreak Dream’ and ‘Alone Again’ – at her recent shows.

Back in August 2013, Who said, “I think, because I’ve been so busy, I haven’t really been distracted by men and by my relationships as much as by work… There’s definitely heartbreak in the second EP, but it’s a little less consuming.”
