Toronto-based alt-pop singer-songwriter Devon Cole shares a cheeky new summer single and music video entitled “Dickhead”.

On the track, Devon adds a new twang to her voice. She says “’Dickhead is THE song for me. I feel like it captures so much of who I am. From the title to the lyrics to the beat, it’s everything I wanna be as an artist. It’s a track that makes you wanna move and makes you smile. We had a laugh coming up with the lyrics. It’s hooky and just straight-up fun and I love it. I’m someone who is very drawn to music that is campy. The biggest songs of my youth were songs like “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” “Call Me Maybe,” and “Mama No. 5.” I love music that is lighthearted and a little ridiculous. That’s the stuff people bond over, the stuff of life. I feel like the world can always use more FUN and that’s what “Dickhead” is to me. I believe in it so much. I hope people love it as much as I do.”

This new track shines a light on what’s ahead for the singer-songwriter. Devon goes on to say that “Dickhead is also very representative of my future sound, I think. I’m a sucker for a good guitar riff and a driving beat. This chapter feels really good to me and I wanna keep chasing that feeling. I hope this song makes people excited about what I’m doing next.”

In the accompanying visual, directed by IBUKI Studios, Devon says “giddy up” to her gal pals as she says goodbye to her former lover. Nothing bothers this future country queen as she struts the streets with her unified dances. Guess the guy was just a “Dickhead”!

“Dickhead” follows “1-800-GOT-STRESS” which was featured on Sirius XM’s HITBOUND channel, Spotify’s “it’s a bop” playlist and the cover of Amazon Music’s “Breakthrough Pop.” Devon recently wrapped up her first US tour opening for Andy Grammar. The singer songwriter also headlined at the King City Craft Beer & Food Truck Festival and was on the Sound Of Music Festival lineup at Toronto Pride.

Catchily packaging social truths in repeat worthy bops, 24-year-old Devon Cole has emerged as an enigmatic and engaging force to be reckoned with over the past year. Her viral single “W.I.T.C.H.” (Woman in Total Control of Herself) has eclipsed over +90 million streams. Following this success, she released the endlessly catchy sex-positive anthem “Hey Cowboy,” soft side “Call U After Rehab” and emotionally charged ballad “1-800-GOT-STRESS.” Devon now kicks of summer 2023 with her cheeky single “Dickhead.” Since signing to Arista Records in 2022, Devon has reached the precipice of a major breakthrough. She has already amassed millions of streams across her repertoire, received critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, V Magazine, Bustle, and Earmilk, and was nominated for ‘Breakthrough Artist of the Year’ at the 2023 JUNO Awards and Favorite Breakout Artist’ at the 2023 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
