Our favourite country-pop cutie Caitlyn Shadbolt has done it again! Her new single and video for Bad has just been released in to the world, and honestly? What a bop.

While we accept that it’s so lazy to draw parallels with other artists, this one is for all the people who miss the ‘old’ Taylor Swift (who can’t come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, because she’s dead!). Bad hits that perfect sweet spot that Fearless Tay-Tay hit, with a little bit of country and a whole lot of sass.

For all the aussies out there (and fans of great pop music in general), this one had a little influence by David Cochrane, who produced albums for The Veronicas.

Caitlyn tells us that ‘I wrote this song in Nashville with two incredible females. Danielle Blakey (Stan Walker/ Celia Pavey aka Vera Blue) & Emily Shackleton. We wanted to have some fun with this one but also keep in with the theme of being a strong female. It’s always been a personal favourite of mine!’. And her brand of pro-femism country-pop? We’re all about it!

She’s also just announced a run of Australian tour dates for later this year, which you can see below:
