Vérité won over industry folk and fans alike when she performed a slew of gigs at SXSW this year, one of those being the Neon Gold Records showcase closing out the week with headliners MSMR. That wasn't the first time the two had worked together in some vicinity, it seems, as MSMR's own Zach Nicita produced Vérité's huge new single 'Colors' which you can stream below.

Progressing the sound we heard on her debut EP even further, 'Colors' could easily find a perfect home on radios all around the world with its pristine pop production and powerful voice that soars atop like a bird in the sky on a sunny day.

Speaking to Popjustice, she explained that "Colors was written over the course of a few days on my bed. I hadn't yet met Zach Nicita (of MSMR), who produced the track, which is more normal than it sounds. I had been forwarded the track from my manager and was immediately semi-obsessed with how hard the percussion hit from the start. It's the first time I had collaborated with Zach and written over a track that was so developed. It definitely challenged me to write strong and dynamically from the start and really strongly solidify a departure from ambient synth pop. Lyrically, it has a really complex, convoluted meaning to me that has changed with each iteration of the song."
