Stela Cole is a rising singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. Not too long ago, she released a triumphant sad-girl anthem, titled, “Bye Bye Blues,” via Ultra Records. The song is the latest in a string of heavy-hitting singles from Stela including “Star” and “Rhapsody In Pink.”
Stela Cole – “Bye Bye Blues” single
“I’ve been up all night by the phone, and I’m crying. Drowning in orange wine, trust me, this is me trying. You said forever, but you lied. We’re not together, Baby, why? And I told myself that I would never f*** up again. Then I go ahead and f*** it, now we’re f****** again (f***). Used to have a brain, but I don’t know where it went.” – lyrics
‘Bye Bye Blues’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who was close to saying I do to her significant other. Apparently, she changed her mind after her partner hit her with some bad news. Now, she’s sippin’ on a bottle of sad girl juice ’cause she has nothing left to lose. Later, she admits, “I miss your body, so I’m feeling myself. Pretend you’re with me, Baby, I need help.”
‘Bye Bye Blues’ finds Stela Cole emphasizing how it’s okay to be sad when a relationship ends; as long as you embrace the lessons you’ve learned and look for the brighter days ahead. She redefines what a breakup anthem sounds like as she encourages listeners to dance their tears away. “Bye Bye Blues” chronicles the stages of a breakup from Stela’s point of view.
“‘Bye Bye Blues’ is about heartbreak, but with a fun twist. I was dating this guy for a few months when he invited me to a party just to hook up with another girl in front of my face. I was devastated, but also knew I was going to thrive without him. Good riddance. Even though it took a handful of wine-drunk nights at home and face-timing all my girlfriends for reassurance, I eventually got over him and came out the other side, stronger than before.” – Stela Cole explained
‘Bye Bye Blues’ arrives on the heels of the recent announcement for Stela’s debut Los Angeles show on November 10th at Bar Lubitsch featuring support from GALXARA and Michal Leah. Tickets are on sale now.
‘Bye Bye Blues’ also contains a punchy pop beat, synthesized handclaps, and shimmering harmonies wrapped around a slick bass line. Furthermore, the catchy song offers a taste of what’s to come from Stela Cole’s upcoming full-length project, due out in 2023.
“I’ve written my fair share of breakup anthems with dark, edgy energy. But this time, I wanted a song I could cry to while also dancing my a** off. I wrote ‘Bye Bye Blues’ to be an uplifting moment for others too. It’s okay to feel hurt when someone screws you over, but at the end of the day, don’t forget your worth. There’s always room to have a good time and celebrate, even over something f***** up. Turn lemons into lemonade. Find the silver lining.” – Stela Cole explained
Explosive, elegant, and irresistibly larger-than-life, Stela Cole’s music radiates the kind of unbridled confidence that leaves a long-lasting impact. The bold energy of the singer/songwriter’s immaculately composed pop comes from years of fighting for her vision and refusing to compromise the elaborate depth of her artistry.
Newly signed to Ultra Records, Stela is now set to deliver her most extravagantly realized music yet, showing the full force of her soulful voice and fearless authenticity for the very first time.
“If you’re a sad a$$ b*tch…but, whatever you do, don’t call him, block him! Or f*** it, show up piss drunk at his door, who cares?” – lyrics
Earlier this year, Stela appeared on NBC’s American Song Contest, representing the state of Georgia. She broke the show’s season record for week 1 streaming with her break-up single, “DIY.” To date, Stela has released two EPs, Throwing Up Butterflies (2018) and Woman Of The Hour (2020). Also, she has released a string of independent releases that have racked up over 80 million global streams.
