Try not to freak out because we are just hours away from new Dove Cameron music! Yep, the Disney actress just announced that she’s got two brand new singles coming out this Friday, September 27, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Fans have been waiting a long time for Dove to release music of her own, and the 23-year-old also shared a heartfelt note, explaining why it took her so long.
“Wanna start by saying that I know it’s been six years that I’ve been promising (teasing) music … It’s been the strongest, most varied/twisted journey to get to his point, but I’m so glad that it was,” she wrote on Instagram. “Every time I tried in the past, it was never quite right, and always a compromise of some kind. and while this is only the start of it, for the first time in my young career and life, I finally fee like I see who I am reflected in something I’m sharing with the world, and that’s incredibly gratifying and novel to me, if not a little terrifying/totally humbling.”
“To those of you that have been waiting, thanks for your patience and support. This first release is the end of music month, but the start of a whole new era for me as an artist, where my music plays a central role and I drop songs/content super regularly. We’ve waited long enough, you know?” the blonde beauty continued. “And for those of you that follow me but have no idea who I am or that I was planning on releasing music, I hope you hear yourself in some of my stuff. Can’t wait to start creating with you/for you.”
Back in July, Dove opened up about her new music to Seventeen Magazine.
“It’s all me, it’s all my sound. At the end of the day, I don’t do anything unless I love it. [This is] by far my most personal experience yet in the industry,” she revealed. “It’s taken me a long time, but just like everything else in my life so far, I now understand why I waited so long. It’s finally right. I really love who I am now.”

“OK. So, I was working on an independent album when I was younger (15), that I planned on releasing on my own, and then I signed with Disney,” she explained. “We (me and my manager at the time) put off releasing my own music because I was now under contract to be with their label, meaning I would release [Disney’s] music, not mine, after they cast me on their show. After they released me from the first right of refusal clause, (2 years later), I released music with my boyfriend at the time (I was 18/19/20). When we broke up, I then recorded some things independently again, and planned on releasing them. Then, I signed with Sony/Disruptor about a year ago, and have been working on music (singles and videos) ever since, now going to be released in a few months. That’s the full thing.”
We can’t wait to hear her new tunes, but we know that it’ll be worth the wait!
