K.Flay To Offer 'Solutions' With New Album & World Tour
GRAMMY-nominated alt singer/songwriter K.Flay has released a catchy new song, "This Baby Don't Cry," along with the announcement that it is part of her forthcoming third studio album, Solutions. In addition to sharing the LP's release date of July 12, she revealed she'll be kicking off The Solutions Tour on Sept. 3 in Phoenix.
"This Baby Don't Cry" is the second single she has dropped this year, following "Bad Vibes" last month. Both songs will be on the upcoming album. She co-wrote the latest with Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons, who signed her to his Night Street Records label (under Interscope) in 2016.
The album will be her second LP released under Reynold's imprint, following 2017's Every Where Is Some Where, which earned her two GRAMMY nods at the 60th GRAMMY Awards, including for Best Rock Song for its popular track "Blood In The Cut."
In a press release, K.Flay explains the creative energy behind her latest project, which followed the three years of touring that she wrapped up late in 2018.
"When I got home from tour, I was in a dark place. Eventually, I made a decision to focus on the things that actually make me happy," she wrote.
She elaborated, explaining; "The title Solutions came to me really early in the process. The solution to almost every problem is usually really simple. For me, it's so basic: staying connected to the people I love, taking care of myself the way I'd want my friends to take care of themselves, and doing things I know are going to make me happy – not what social media or strangers or society tells me. So many of my past records were about problems. Right now I'm in a place where I'm looking for some light. Balance is important."
The newly announced tour will have K.Flay bringing her unique sound—and new music—to 19 cities across North America from Sept. 3 to Oct. 12, with stops in Vancouver, Seattle, Chicago, Brooklyn, N.Y. and more. On Oct. 18, she will be crossing the pond for a European leg of the tour, kicking off in Birmingham, U.K. and wrapping up on Nov. 11 in Frankfurt, Germany.
