K. Flay Releases New Single, Announces New Album

K. Flay reveals the title, track-listing and release date for her highly-anticipated third studio full-length album, ‘Solutions’ out on July 12.


After playing a series of intimate, sold-out underplays for fans earlier this month, two-time Grammy® Award-nominated Night Street/Interscope Records artist K.Flay reveals the title, track-listing and release date for her highly-anticipated third studio full-length album, ‘Solutions’ out on July 12.



Catalyzed by a three-year whirlwind of world touring and prolific output, K.Flay translates the simple pleasures into ten genre-blurring bangers, explaining: “When I got home from tour, I was in a dark place,” she admits. “Eventually, I made a decision to focus on the things that actually make me happy: walking around my neighborhood, drawing in notebooks with markers, talking to my mom on the phone. I thought, ‘What did I do as a kid to be happy?’ As a child, you don’t have access to alcohol, drugs, sex, caffeine. I looked back, when I had fun just by making music. I remembered the first time I wrote a song, burned a CD, and played it in my car. It’s the closest thing I’ve ever had to a religious experience. I reconnected with that spirit and stopped taking shit so seriously.” The resulting output in turn showcases K.Flay widening the scope of her signature style by incorporating a variety of analog synths along with live bass and guitar, all the while, bobbing and weaving her way between pop, rock, hip-hop, and electronic moods.

Talking about the title of the album, K.Flay reveals, “The title SOLUTIONS came to me really early in the process,” she continues. “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. Life doesn’t have to be chaotic in order to be meaningful.”

Also announced today, THE SOLUTIONS TOUR which kicks off with a 19-city run of North American dates on September 3 in Phoenix, AZ before winding through San Diego, Vancouver, Seattle, Chicago, Toronto, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, DC and more, concluding on October 12 in Denver.
