Laura Marano’s EP You was something we immediately fell in love with when she released it back in October 2020. Today, she has released the deluxe edition of the EP and chatting with Audacy’s Bru to share all the details behind her record.

The initial You EP was a continuation of the Me EP and Lara explains that the deluxe version of You came about because “I had a bunch of songs that I felt like still connected with the stories I told on the Me EP.
