Cementing her status as a songwriting force of nature, Alana Springsteen fearlessly releases “Trust Issues” today (5/13), available now through all streaming platforms and digital retailers. Co-produced by Springsteen, “Trust Issues” finds the fast-rising artist-songwriter baring her soul about a devastating breakup – then transforming all that heartache into a high-energy anthem that’s nothing short of euphoric.




“‘Trust Issues’ was painful to write. It’s a song I had put off writing but knew needed to get out – for my sake,” Springsteen confesses. “The guy who broke my heart told more lies than I can count and turned out to be the exact opposite of who he promised he was … cue ‘Trust Issues.’ This song is an anthem for anyone out there who's on the other side of heartbreak, still dealing with anger, sadness, bitterness, and the fear that they may never be able to trust again. I loved being able to do this without making it a sad song.”

Co-produced with Cameron Jaymes – and co-written with Sasha Alex Sloan, Jessie Jo Dillon, and Nick Bailey – “Trust Issues” details the fallout of a shattered relationship. With a gut-punching specificity, Springsteen soulfully expresses her deepest regrets (“Thank you for the tears and the unnecessary drama / Can’t believe I let someone like you around my mama”) while infusing the song with a bit of bracing humor (“I bought my therapist a house / With all the damage you did me”). In a testament to her strength as a songwriter, Springsteen sets her heart-on-sleeve storytelling against an impossibly sunny backdrop, blending her bright acoustic-guitar work with dreamy pedal-steel tones, shimmering keys, and wildly soaring rhythms. Propelled by an ironic feel-good tempo, the result is a massively catchy anthem meant for driving around town and singing along with total abandon.

As Springsteen reveals, the unbridled spirit of “Trust Issues” has much to do with the cathartic nature of her songwriting process. “If Sasha [Alex Sloan], Jessie [Jo Dillon], and Nick [Bailey] hadn’t been in the writing room with me that day, I’m not sure I would’ve had the courage to say it all out loud,” she admits. “Thankfully, the girls had just gone through insane breakups themselves and the day was more of a therapy session than anything else.”

“Trust Issues” arrives as the latest in a series of powerhouse releases from Springsteen. Last month, she premiered “New Number,” a soul-stirring ballad penned by Shane McAnally, Ashley Gorley, and Rhett Akins. Accompanied by a quietly stunning black-and-white video she co-directed with David Bradley (Osprey Media), “New Number” marked the first-ever outside cut for Springsteen, a fierce champion of the Nashville songwriting community since signing her first publishing deal at age 14. Prior to sharing “New Number,” Springsteen dropped “Me Myself and Why” (along with its video), an unstoppably bold track. With both head-turners praised by E! News and dubbing her “one of Nashville's most buzzworthy emerging artists,” the entertainment outlet warned, “brace yourself for a true heartbreaker” about “New Number,” while spotlighting “uptempo smash” “Me Myself and Why.”

Springsteen’s new batch of songs follows her buzzed-about EP HISTORY OF BREAKING UP (PART ONE) – a 2021 release praised by PEOPLE as “a magical mixture of deep thoughts on love and heartbreak, all delivered by a voice that seems to represent the future of country music.” Having independently surpassed 51 MILLION career streams, she’s also scored major playlist adds, including Spotify’s Fresh Finds, New Boots, and New Music Friday; Apple Music’s Country Risers, New Music Daily, and Soundcheck; Amazon Music’s Breakthrough Country; and Pandora’s AMP: Fresh Cuts, New Country, and Rising Women in Country.

Making her CMA Fest debut in Nashville, TN, on June 11, she’s also set to take the stage at Tennessee Performing Arts Center the same day to appear in the rotating role of “Bailey Stone” during the world premiere engagement of the highly anticipated stage show MAY WE ALL: A NEW COUNTRY MUSICAL. Tickets are available via TPAC.org.
