Tate is back in the sudio! 2024 is shaping up to be such a goodie.

The 20-year-old singer only released her second studio album 'Think Later' in December.

The collection was produced by studio wizard Ryan Tedder - who has worked on tracks for the likes of Adele, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Ed Sheeran - and Tate explained how he was the "glue" she needed to make a more cohesive record.

She explained to Uproxx: "When Ryan Tedder became my executive producer, he emerged as the glue I really had been seeking for my sophomore album. I felt my first album felt very all over the place musically; for Think Later, I really wanted cohesion. Ryan was able to take a step back and help me create a body of work that I felt incorporated the many genres and styles that shape me while still existing in one consistent world. He’s also just a musical genius."

Tate believes the LP benefited from her drawing from her own authentic experiences.

She said: "Honestly, writing for this album came a lot more naturally because I was pulling from real experiences I had gone through. Both the experiences that led to the confident, empowered tracks like 'Greedy' and the experiences that led to more contemplative, reflective, and nostalgic songs like 'Calgary'. So many of my previous songs, especially those I wrote when I was first singing on YouTube, were from situations I imagined. The songs on this album are all so honest — no matter what the emotion was. I suppose, though, that writing sad songs has always felt easier because when I am sad, I find comfort in writing. Channeling my confident self needed to be a lot more intentional."
