The first single, ‘Think of Me’ was released April 17, 2020. The music video for the song was filmed remotely due to COVID-19 quarantine restrictions, with Lunny performing her portion of the video at home in Winnipeg, and the rest of the video filmed on a closed set in New York.[7] The ‘Think of Me’ music video was lauded for its inclusion and representation of the LGBTQ community by Pride.com.[8] ‘Bedsheets’ the second single from the project was released May 22, 2020 via a premiere with Parade[9] and in September it was announced that Lunny had been selected as one of the five winners of the SOCAN Foundation Awards for Young Canadian Songwriter for the song.[10] On October 27, 2020, the final video from the EP, ‘Bedsheets’ was premiered with Live Nation’s Ones To Watch. The third single and accompanying video for ‘Hold Me’ were released July 24, 2020. The song was originally written as a piano ballad but evolved into a fully fledged pop song as a result of Lunny’s collaboration with Healey.[11] The full EP which included the final single, ‘Something New’ was premiered by PAPER on August 28th, 2020. Lunny explained that the EP was about “navigating the emotions that come with love and heartbreak” and was a reflection of her personal journey thus far.[12]
