 Cat Burns has collaborated with Dutch electronic duo Shermanology for a new rendition of her hit track Free.

Since making her music debut in 2018, Burns has captivated audiences worldwide with her spectacular vocals and immersive songwriting about the LGBTQ+ experience.

Alongside her growing dedicated fan base on social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram, Burns has proved that her upward trajectory is just beginning.

Back in December, the young talent opened up about the complexities of coming out to her family in the heartfelt track Free.

In the months following its debut, the track has reached viral status on TikTok and has been hailed as a new LGBTQ+ anthem.

Now, the UK-based artist has released a new version of the record with an electronic flare.

Free (Shermanology Remix), which is produced by the titular duo, takes Aston Rudi’s original production and blends it with a soulful tech-house sound.

The remix comes a few weeks after Burns’ opened up to GAY TIMES about the importance of smashing “harsh stereotypes” about LGBTQ+ artists and the Black community.

“I’m a 22-year-old Black queer woman and I talk about all of these things openly. There’s a message that’s portrayed about Black women that we’re all a particular way,” she explained.

“That we are really brash, aggressive so I’m coming in and talking about really vulnerable things. If you’re a Black woman, I want you to feel heard and seen.

“We are vulnerable people who are capable of having lots of emotions. And, being a Black queer woman adds a layer to that.” Cat’s music is definitely her own.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Burns also discussed her latest EP, Emotionally Unavailable, and releasing vulnerable tracks like Free.

“Knowing the love that people have for that transparency and songs like Free, which is a close to home story about a friend, is a really lovely feeling because people feel like they’ve grown with you and your story.”
