The Los Angeles-based exciting singer/songwriter K.Flay, shares This Baby Won’t Cry (co-penned by Dan Reynolds from Imagine Dragons), a slice of her fetchingly lush mix of clever pop, rock, hip-hop, and electronic vibes, from her brand new album SOLUTIONS (out July 12th via Night Street / Interscope Records).
K.Flay reveals: “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?”
She adds “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”.
On the title of the album, K.Flay explains “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”.
K.Flay has also announced her eagerly awaited return to the UK…
