If you had “Poppy partnering with WWE to release a new EP” on your 2021 Bingo card, you were paying more attention than we were in the previous weeks.
After showing up to perform on WWE’s NXT several times over the past year, Poppy went on the show last night to announce the release of her new five-song EP, Eat – NXT Soundtrack. As one might deduce from the title, the EP contains the official theme song of this Sunday’s NXT TakeOver: In Your House, “Dark Dark World.” Also included in the EP are “EAT” (which she debuted at her Grammy performance this year), “Say Cheese” from her April performance on NXT, and a pair of other tracks, “CUE” and “Breeders.”
“NXT is all about individuality and building characters and Poppy has built her own brand in a similar fashion to become the world-renowned artist she is today,” Paul Levesque, WWE’s Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development better known as Triple H said in a statement. “Releasing her new EP EAT – NXT SOUNDTRACK during NXT television adds another unique layer to our longstanding partnership.”
We suppose this moves Poppy one step closer to being the most electrifying artist in sports entertainment. This could be what she meant when she told us last year that she had some new songs ready to go.
