Today, Devon Cole released her new single "Call U After Rehab" along with a music video (watch below). The ballad is a departure from previous releases like "W.I.T.C.H.“ and "Hey Cowboy."

"It's a love song about pausing a relationship in order to take care of myself," she says. "I was putting off my issues for a while and finding any way to justify my bad habits. Deciding to say goodbye to my closest comforts, to give myself the space and time to heal, felt like ripping off a bandaid that had been there for ages."

Raised in Calgary, Cole honed her vocals singing in show choirs. Now, she has one of the more versatile voices in pop music. She can effortlessly shift from dance to R&B. Jazz or country wouldn't be much of a stretch.

We met up with the singer-songwriter at Venice Beach to talk about the new track, her influences, and the massive success of "W.I.T.C.H."
