Lauren Alaina just unveiled the details surrounding her forthcoming six-track EP, Getting Over Him, dropping September 4. She also announced that the first song from the EP entitled “Run” will be available on Friday (July 31).

“Wrote this music while learning how to let go of the past,” Alaina told fans in a social media post.

Getting Over Him features two duets, including the title track duet with her labelmate and friend Jon Pardi. Alaina previously collaborated with Pardi on his Heartache Medication track “Don’t Blame It On Whiskey.”

“I’ve done duets with other people for their projects, but I have never done any for my own,” the singer says. “I’ve got a duet with Pardi on his album, and then he loved this one [‘Getting Over Him.’] His energy is so amazing. I can’t believe I have a rebound song — but I do!”

Pop sensation Lukas Graham will also join her on the track “What Do You Think Of?” on the EP.

“Lukas Graham’s vocal on this is ridiculous,” Alaina explained. “I am the most nervous about releasing this one because I was so vulnerable when I wrote it. Most of my songs come from more of a sassy and empowered place and this song comes from a really broken place. But I think it’s important because it is a part of who I am. It’s a part of what I went through. And if I am going to be honest in my music, I have to share songs like that too.”

Additionally, the vocal powerhouse shared the album art for the forthcoming EP, which you can see in the below Tweet.

Alaina says that she feels “really empowered with this music” and thinks that it will really showcase her “personal” and “emotional growth.”

“This EP of songs is all about loving myself through other people not loving me and not staying with me,” Alaina said. “It’s about me being able to get back to that same confident girl I wrote about on Road Less Travelled and to hold on to that confidence. I get to celebrate that with this music, and I am so excited. I can’t wait for the fans to hear it.”
