Liza Owen Exposes the Messy Side of Stardom in New Single “Starry Eyed”

Since her first release, “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?” this summer, Liza Owen has been crafting unapologetic pop anthems that pack a punch. Her latest single, “Starry Eyed” carries that same power. 

The gritty track looks into the messy, less than glamorous and sometimes destructive journey to stardom. “Starry Eyed” was born at around 3am after staying up for 3 days straight at a writing trip with my crew ASL…it is a song about realizing that the dream is not as glamorous as people think it is – and neither is the road to get there. A lot of messed up things have happened to some of our icons but somehow we still want to be like them,” Owen shared with Clash Magazine.  

The song’s release was paired with a black and white visual directed by Dylan Brewer featuring Owen sitting precariously off the back of a motorbike with literal stars in her eyes. 

Whether it’s through her own music or the tracks she previously penned for artists including Selena Gomez and BTS, Owen says, “I feel like my music is genuinely me. And all I want for my fans is to let them know that it’s okay to feel everything.”
