She’s not always hilarious, but she’s not always sad either – she’s RobynOttolini, and she’s killing it. The 25-year-old “F-150” hit-maker announced today that she will release her Warner Music Nashville debut The But I’m Not Always Sad Either EP on June 25. The four-song project flips the script on her The But I’m Not Always Hilarious EP and features recently released track “Tell You Everything” (LISTEN HERE). Fans will be able to pre-save the four-song EP beginning June 18.
“The But I’m Not Always Sad Either EP is basically a continuation of my story from last year, when I put out a bunch of breakup songs,” Ottolini. “I want to keep telling my story as authentically, honestly and in-time as possible. Even though I’ve written some heartbreakers, a huge part of who I am is making people laugh. I love to have a good time and not take life too seriously. This EP has got a lot of love on it – romantic love, self-love, friend-love, family-love. I’m happy to finally share that part of who I am with everybody.”
Ottolini and her “true emotional earworm” (Taste of Country) “F-150” connected with audiences in late 2020 via TikTok, and now – just over a half year later – the major label recording artist has upwards of 40 million global streams to her name. “F-150” has reached No. 4 on Spotify’s all-genre US Viral 50 chart and No. 3 on Rolling Stone’s all-genre Trending 25 (LISTEN HERE). The official music video, which boasts 3.5 million views, features red-hot visuals and was filmed in the Toronto, Ontario area near her hometown of Uxbridge.
Ottolini’s small-town-Canadian upbringing serves as the creative inspiration for every witty, relatable lyric she writes. Inspired by artists like Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves and Sam Hunt, the 25-year-old has been named a 2021 Artist To Watch by The Boot and Yardbarker. She is currently tied for the most 2021 CMAOntario Award nominations with five total nods.
