Atlantic recording artist Hayley Kiyoko has officially released her hugely anticipated debut album today. EXPECTATIONSwhich includes the smash single, “Curious,” is available now at all music retailers and streaming services (Download/Stream HERE). In addition to “Curious,” the 13-track collection includes Kiyoko’s eagerly awaited collaboration, “What I Need” feat. Kehlani (Listen HERE).

“‘EXPECTATIONS’ has a level of maturity that I’ve never had before. There’s a sense of grounded confidence within the lyrics, the melodies, and the production. It’s very unwavering. This is what it is. Take it or leave it. It’s not that I wasn’t confident before, but that energy really exudes through the music now. It represents everything in my life from health to girls to loss.” – Hayley Kiyoko
