CHLOE X HALLE RELEASE DEBUT FULL-LENGTH ALBUM ‘THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT’ FROM PARKWOOD ENTERTAINMENT/COLUMBIA RECORDS TODAY

Today, sister duo Chloe x Halle has released their highly anticipated debut full-length album The Kids Are Alright from Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records. Written and executively produced by Chloe Bailey, 19 and Halle Bailey, 17, the album is now available everywhere.

For almost three years now, fans of the duo have been privy to their constant growth, keening harmonies and genuine musical moments, including stylish videos for original songs “Drop” and “Fall.”  They have watched an evolution in beautiful progress as Chloe x Halle gave glimpses of the magic that was to come through their creative covers and gorgeously understated videos.  Whether through YouTube, Instagram, concert stages, magazine fashion spreads or television appearances, Chloe x Halle left unforgettable impressions and built authentic anticipation for their debut full-length release.

It was their soulful rendition of Beyoncé’s own “Pretty Hurts” that caught the attention of the global icon’s Parkwood Entertainment imprint in 2013. In the spring of 2016 Chloe x Halle released their stunning debut EP, Sugar Symphony, braided by numinous forces equal to their sibling DNA: Mystically layered harmonies, peerless production instincts, and an adjoining R&B/pop destiny intertwined with mentor Beyoncé (who, incredibly, initially met the girls on a film shoot more than a decade ago), all setting the table for their genre-pushing debut “Drop.” In the summer of 2016 they left a lasting impression in Europe while on tour as an opening act for Beyoncé’s 2016 record-breaking “The Formation World Tour.”

Last December, Chloe x Halle released the theme song for “GROWN-ISH,” the “BLACK-ISH” spin-off that has been met with overwhelming praise for its honest portrayals of teen lives in college. They were added to the cast as series regulars, after initially signing on for recurring roles.  “Grown” and its accompanying music video, which featured the sisters using a variety of Snapchat Lenses, also received praise from fans and critics alike.  They then followed-up quickly with the title track “The Kids Are Alright,” featured prominently in the series debut episode.

“Our debut album The Kids Are Alright means so much to us,” state Chloe x Halle.   “This is three years of self-discovery, vulnerability, and growth, all put into one album. We’ve put our hearts and souls into every lyric, every beat, and we cannot wait for the world to hear.”

The Kids Are Alright features new gems, “Fake,” “Hi Lo,” “Galaxy,” “Happy Without Me,” “Grown,” “The Kids Are Alright” and “Warrior,” which is also featured in the fantastical Disney movie, A Wrinkle In Time. The album is available in-stores and online here.  Chloe x Halle made their late night television debut last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live with their performance of “Happy Without Me.” The girls will also be performing on The Today Show on Monday, March 26.

The R&B sister act have also released a 10-minute short film to accompany their debut album. The film can be viewed here.  Highlighting six songs, the clip stars Bailey siblings Chloe and their friend Ashton Sanders, who rose to fame following his appearance in the 2017 Academy Award-winning drama MoonlightCara Stricker directed and Beyoncé collaborator Kwasi Fordjour wrote and creative directed the hypnotic project.
