Micah McLaurin Releases New Single ‘Call Me’

Following his blistering performance at Dolce and Gabbana’s Alta Gioelleria in Sardinia, rising pop star Micah McLaurin has released his steamy new summer anthem, “Call Me,” via Casa Doce Music. Produced by Fernando Garibay (Lady Gaga), co-written with Simon Wilcox (Carly Rae Jepson), “Call Me” sizzles with the confidence that comes from not being afraid to go after what you want.

“I came up with the idea for ‘Call Me’ when I was in the middle of writing another song,” Micah says. “I went to the bathroom and started saying the word ‘bitch’ after all the rhyming words. My co-writer Simon turned it into the opening of a hook and we knew we had to write the whole song. It was so much fun because it was so spontaneous and such a cheeky song that showed a completely different persona than the classical pianist people know. I’ve been hiding behind the piano for most of my life and that’s been my only identity and the only thing people see about me. With this song, I’m able to show and own more of who I am.”

“Working with An Le on all the visuals was amazing. She had such a great vision for the song,” Micah adds. “She stayed true to the lyrics and message of the song and really dove into the imagery of the song. I love how she kept the visuals elevated but with a sexy twist. We made a garden paradise, I had real snakes on me and mixed glam, high fashion with raw and real elements from my life and the story of the song… and there’s more to come!”
