K.Flay will release her second full-length album — entitled Every Where Is Some Where — on April 7th via Night Street/Interscope/Universal Music Canada. A brand-new song from the album, “Black Wave,” is available today for digital download and streaming. Listen to “Black Wave” HERE and watch the lyric video HERE.
“Black Wave” is “about facing something immense and menacing and choosing not to cower, but to rise up,” K.Flay says in a statement that also sheds light on the album’s title. It reads in part: “In writing this album, I thought a lot about the places that shape us, and how, in turn, we shape those places in our minds. As human beings living on earth right now, we find ourselves in a very particular spot where the planet is getting warmer, the internet is getting bigger, the stakes are as grave as ever and the President of the United States of America is a television celebrity who openly degrades those unlike him (non-white, non-male, non-straight, non-wealthy, non-citizen), whose chief strategist has spent much of his career promoting white nationalism in a country meant to foster diversity and progress through tolerance. A President who intends to limit our freedoms, foment hatred and silence dissent. And yet, every place, every where, is just some place, some where. It’s all arbitrary and fucked up and sometimes lucky. I think you can understand the fact of your own smallness in this world while still celebrating the very particular singularity of who you are and where you happen to stand.”
In March, K.Flay kicks off her Canadian tour with Mother Mother in support of her current EP Crush Me, which features the smash track “Blood In The Cut” – which peaked at #1 on the Canadian alternative radio charts.
