In the first track, “I’m Stronger,” Corvette sends a strong message with no-nonsense lyrics like “Got so tired of your indiscretion/and stupid little lies/it’s all past now/left you behind me/you’re just not worth my time,” through her classic musical persona: a mix of toughness, attitude and a playful coyness that can say both “come hither” and “don’t mess with me” at the same time.

Both songs will be available via download and on vinyl (with two songs by Norwegian group The Dahlmans on the flip side) at the Surfer Ki Records website.
Nikki Corvette will appear in an upcoming Revenge of the 80s Radio show to talk more about her new music.
