Valerie June released a new single entitled “Use Me.” The song is the first new original music shared by the singer-songwriter since the release of her 2021 album, The Moon And Stars: Prescriptions For Dreamers.

June is currently nominated for the Grammy Award for Best American Roots Song for The Moon And Stars: Prescriptions For Dreamers track “Call Me A Fool,” featuring Stax legendary vocalist Carla Thomas. June’s headlining tour is set to begin on March 31 in Seattle.

“Use Me” is a collaboration co-written by June with songwriter and producer Jennifer Decilveo. Regarding “Use Me,” June shared the statement below:

“As a bridge between modern music and traditional songs, ‘Use Me’ vacillates between upbeat pop and weaves in the old, familiar hymn, ‘Will the Circle Be Unbroken.’ Coming full circle, this represents multiple layers of how through love, families, and communities, whether publicly or personally, in life and beyond death, we can use each other to create gorgeously positive changes.

“Oftentimes, the voices of encouragement are from the women in our lives. We use the guidance of mothers, sisters, aunts, and daughters. I’m thrilled to release this song in celebration of International Women’s Month because it was my very first time working with a female producer, Jennifer Decilveo. Female producers are not easy to come by in the music industry, so this collaboration was extra special.”
