Though she’s best known for playing a God-fearing hypocrite named Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett on Orange Is the New Black, Taryn Manning has temporarily hung up her khaki jumpsuit to surprise us with a new dance track called “All the Way.” Seriously!
I know, this may come as a surprise to some, but Taryn Manning superfans know she’s been making music for over a decade. Back in 2003, she formed a band called Boomkat with her brother, Kellin, and has since gone on to build a résumé of experimental dance tracks like “Turn It Up” (2011) and “Send Me Your Love” (2013).
That said, her latest, “All the Way,” is certainly an indication of Taryn’s love for EDM. Don’t take it from me, though. Taryn revealed in a recent interview with E! News, “I was inspired by dance music, even before it was named EDM. To me, it’s just dance music.” Music genres aside, Taryn seems to be eager to collaborate with artists across the board. In fact, she provided E! with a pretty impressive wish list: “Some of my dream people to work with would be like, Pharrell [Williams]. I would love to work with Calvin Harris. I love Gwen Stefani and I love Prince.” Can we make at least one of those happen?
Until we get that situated, let’s all enjoy Taryn’s new track, shall we?
The song was produced by British-Canadian producer/DJ, Richard Beynon (otherwise known as BYNON). In true EDM fashion, “All the Way” features a few heavy drops with dance-worthy moments to follow. Watch her desert-filled music video journey unfold, below:
