 BETTY Releases New Anthem “Pride”

With the most fabulous time of the year right around the corner, what better way to get fired up for all the festivities than with a new high energy anthem?

Out today, comes “Pride” from BETTY – the trailblazing award-winning Indie Rock trio of sisters Elizabeth and Amy Ziff and their bestie, Alyson Palmer. Their first new recording in seven years, “Pride” will be part of their upcoming 11th album EAT, scheduled to be released later this year. “Pride” features beats by Mexican Grammy Award-winning DJ, Human Fader. The single and upcoming album are produced by Jason Carmer (Third Eye Blind, The Donnas) from the legendary Dischord Records.

The band explains: “BETTY headlines Gay Prides all over the world. Amy suggested we rush onstage under a glorious voiceover to announce our set. That’s her voice kicking off our song, ‘Pride.’ Elizabeth laid down a beat, Alyson started chanting ‘If they try to stop us, time to RISE!’ and the three of us burst into song. Across the nation, as more rights are being challenged, this song is about the joy of living, loving and dancing for yourself in community. We wrote the song to spread that cheer: music for people to march, to chant AND to cha cha. BETTY believes in effective forward motion through music, celebration, and with love all the way!”
