Detroit-bred vocalist/songwriter Quinn XCII has released another fantastic new track, “Always Been You,” from his forthcoming debut album, The Story Of Us. The song is a smooth, lighthearted “ode to that one person you’ve always put above everyone else,” explains Quinn XCII. “Always Been You” is available everywhere today:http://smarturl.it/ABYaudio.

The Story Of Us—available now for pre-order—is filled with refreshing authenticity and grassroots appeal, highlighted by standout single “Straightjacket,” an infectious track that combines stylish retro-electronic chops with a sultry reggae pop sound about a “psycho from a Midwest suburb,” as Quinn explains. Listen to previously released album tracks “Worst,” “Fake Denim,” and “Straightjacket.”

Quinn XCII explains: “I wanted the album title ‘The Story Of Us’ to really represent that I’m just like everyone else and go through similar experiences. The songs are relatable and touch on all different topics and emotions—new, old, good and bad relationships, growth, memories, temptation, and challenges. I’m just a kid from the Midwest. My life isn’t this unattainable fantasy, I didn’t have an angle or connections to the music industry. I just worked hard to turn my passion into a career, anyone can do the same in whatever they’re pursuing.”

To celebrate the release of The Story Of Us, Quinn XCII will embark on his first national headlining tour this fall, complete with a full live band and of course his always-ready-for-anything stage presence that makes him such a captivating performer. Several dates have already sold out weeks in advance for the 30-date tour, which kicks off September 24 in Salt Lake City, UT and wraps on November 7 in Portland, OR.
