LA-based indie-pop artist Carrie Lane released her “heartfelt” official music video for her new single “Think About It” everywhere today. “Think About It” is the third single off Lane’s debut EP, California Freaks, available everywhere now.
“‘Think About It'” is a song for anyone who has turned to a toxic environment in order to escape a painful situation,” Carrie explained in a recent interview with Yahoo Music. “For some people, it’s about hanging on to a person or a situation that isn’t good for them. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a substance or alcohol; in this case the booze symbolized my escape and how I tried to avoid coping with a painful heartbreak by numbing myself to those around me.”

“I wanted to write something that was truly me, not who people want to perceive me to be,” Carrie states. “I wrote this EP from the heart – it’s truly all the sides of me being loved and me as a lover… not every song is pretty and not every lyric is nice, but every note is real and every emotion is me.”
ABOUT CARRIE LANE:
With her contemporary indie-pop vocals, ever-so-relatable lyrics, and bleach blonde wavy locks, New Jersey bred Carrie Lane was born to be in the spotlight. At the age of 18, Carrie became a double threat – she started to write her own songs and began her professional modeling career. After some experience, Carrie was signed to MSA Models of New York and Los Angeles, where she’s landed many prestigious gigs, including a national campaign for Target just last year.
In 2016, Carrie Lane made the move to Los Angeles, where she finished writing and recording her debut EP, fittingly penned California Freaks, released on June 23rd, 2017. The first single from the EP, “Drowning”, was a hit on Spotify, landing on their coveted New Music Friday and Today’s Top Hits playlists. Her most recent single “If I Can’t Be With You” made it’s debut on Forever21.com. The dramatically-written love song also caught the attention of outlets like Galore Magazine, Zooey Deschanel’s HelloGiggles, PopDust and Paste Magazine.
California Freaks is somewhat of a diary for Carrie Lane, full of songs about love and unbearable heartbreak, all written from personal experiences. It’s no question that Carrie stands out as one of the most real, relatable pop acts in a market that’s extremely saturated – there’s a song for every kind of person on the EP.
Carrie is already back in the studio, writing and recording new music.

'Sanford and Son' premiered on this day in 1972 on NBC.
The show was based on the British sitcom "Steptoe and Son." Adapted by Norman Lear, the show starred comedian Redd Foxx and ran for 6 seasons. Known for its edgy racial humor, running gags, and catchphrases, it was considered NBC's answer to CBS's "All in the Family."
The iconic theme music was composed by the legdary Quincy Jones. Titled "The Streetbeater," the song was released through A&M Records in 1973.

25 years ago today, LA FEMME NIKITA starring Peta Wilson debuted on the USA Network. Based on the Luc Besson film of the same name (and 'Point of No Return' remake starring Bridgette Fonda), this high-intensity syndicated action series ran for five seasons until 2001.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERNCE? — The television series differs from the film versions in one fundamental aspect: Nikita (Peta Wilson) is innocent. She is not a killer, nor a drug user, just a homeless young woman in the wrong place at the wrong time. Section One—an elite, top-secret counter-terrorism organization—sets Nikita up to be accused of murdering a police officer and sentenced to life in prison where she supposedly commits suicide and is brought into Section One. Because Nikita will be killed (or "cancelled") if she fails to comply, she is forced to carry out the organization's ruthless methods of fighting terrorism, while attempting to keep her moral integrity intact. This personal struggle becomes the primary conflict of the series. A key scene in the two theatrical films involves Nikita's first assignment—to murder a VIP in a crowded restaurant. Although the Nikita of the television series eventually does become, by necessity, a ruthless killer, in the television version of this first mission she avoids killing the VIP (whereas the film versions of the character completes the assignment). However, despite the machinations of others in power around her, Nikita retains her compassion and humanity.
