Sarah Zanotti Drops Emotional Rollercoaster Pop Jam “Unwanted”


Nashville pop artist Sarah Zanotti springs back onto the scene in 2019 with “Unwanted,” an absolute anthem about desire, emotional whiplash, and external validation. The track explores the area of an expiring relationship where both people know it’s time to end it, but they haven’t quite reached the acceptance stage yet. Zanotti’s vocals are in top form as the verses dance what’s inevitable before the chorus springs roars back to a purely honest confession: “I don’t want to be unwanted.” Our queen Carly Rae Jepsen would be proud of the flawless execution.

Zanotti tells journalist Lisa Cleary, “’Unwanted’ is about our desperation to compromise ourselves just to feel good enough. And in this particular story, I was fighting to stay in something far past its expiration date, because I didn’t want to face rejection – even though I knew the relationship wasn’t right for me anymore.”

After earning a degree at Berklee College of Music in Boston and a stint living in Los Angeles, Zanotti moved to Nashville for a fresh start in developing her sound. Drawing inspiration from Katy Perry, Shawn Mendes, and Julia Michaels, Zanotti is an exciting addition to the growing roster of Nashville pop artists.

“Unwanted” is the follow up to a trio of 2018 singles and the cinematic video for “Justify (I Hope You’re F*cked Up).” Give Sarah Zanotti a follow on socials and listen to “Unwanted” below!

[TICKET GIVEAWAY] Thursday w/ American Pleasure Club | Feb. 25 & 26 @ Exit/In


After springing back to life in 2016, and steadily showing how a proper reunion is done in the years since, with festival appearances easing into tour dates (including a 2017 return to Nashville), personal mending, attention to fan service, and the foresight not to overstay their buzz, beloved New Jersey post-hardcore icons Thursday are ready to wind things down once more, this time concluding on great terms, and with the door open indefinitely for future activity. For the last trek of their reunion run, the band are continuing a 20th anniversary celebration which kicked off last year, where they’ve been performing two nights in each town, playing fan favorite albums Full Collapse and War All the Time in full. Heading back to Nashville for a final time (for now), the rockers will play Exit/In on Feb. 25 (for Full Collapse) and Feb. 26 (War All the Time), with buzzy Baltimore indie/emo group American Pleasure Club supporting both dates. Though separately ticketed, these shows promise to be different and dynamic in their own right, and are almost certain to sell out, as every single date of last year’s run did. While they last, secure your spot here here (2/25) and here (2/26), or, if you’re feeling lucky, we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to each show, so read on for more and enter for a chance to win below!
