Brooklyn singer/songwriter and Grammy-nominated artist, Leslie Mendelson has released her evocative new single, “Other Girls” from her forthcoming album, After the Party. Stream/buy “Other Girls” HERE

With her enchanting voice and poignant songwriting, Mendelson crafts a distinctive folk-rock, pop-Americana flavor, evoking the sounds of Laurel Canyon, but with the downtown grit and sharp wit of Brooklyn, the city she calls home for over two decades now.

Leslie has won the hearts and minds of both an adoring fanbase and fellow artists alike. No less than Jackson Browne has declared, “Leslie’s melodies are timeless. They reach me way back in my youth somewhere. I hear traces of Burt Bacharach and Carole King, and hooks and passages that remind me of pop songs I grew up hearing on the radio.”

Her fourth studio album, After the Party was produced by the legendary Peter Asher (James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt), the young and in-demand, Tyler Chester (Sara Bareilles, Sara Watkins), and Leslie’s longtime songwriting partner, Steve McEwan. Recorded at Jackson Browne’s studio, Grove Masters in Santa Monica, CA, Leslie was joined by A-list musicians, including guitarists Waddy Wachtel and John Jorgenson, bassists Leland Sklar and Derrick Anderson, and drummers Jim Keltner and Abe Rounds.

The debut single from the forthcoming album, “Other Girls” is an intoxicating twist of aural voyeurism mixed with a healthy dose of sexual openness. It’s chorus suggestively musing “I like it, I said I like it when you talk about other girls.”

“It’s about women empowering women,” says Leslie. “Who doesn’t love women? It’s a way of looking at conventional relationships and indulging in the fantasy. A bit of commentary on the ever-changing world we live in.”
