COLD WAR KIDS LIFT CURTAIN ON STRINGS & KEYS EP

Cold War Kids have unveiled STRINGS & KEYS, an all-new EP collecting exclusive acoustic renditions of songs found on their acclaimed new album, NEW AGE NORMS 1. The 5-track EP includes a stark, stripped down version of the LP’s “Beyond the Pale (Strings & Keys),” joined by an equally potent official video, streaming now. STRINGS & KEYS arrives today at all DSPs and streaming services. NEW AGE NORMS 1 is available now in a variety of formats via CWKTWO/AWAL.

Among its many highlights, STRINGS & KEYS further features Cold War Kids’ inventive cover of George Michael’s classic “Freedom ’90,” as well as “Complainer (Strings & Keys),” a powerful acoustic version of their acclaimed hit single, “Complainer,” which is joined by an official visualizer, streaming now at Cold War Kids’ official YouTube channel. Co-written with multi-platinum songwriter Bonnie McKee (Katy Perry, Rita Ora) and Electric Guest’s Asa Taccone, the original album version of “Complainer” proved a multi-format radio favorite upon its release last year, reaching the top 5 at Triple A and the top 20 at Alternative outlets across America.

Cold War Kids is currently celebrating NEW AGE NORMS 1 on a major North American headline tour, with headline dates continuing through late February (see itinerary below). Support throughout comes from NYC-based electronic-pop duo Overcoats. An exclusive cassette edition of STRINGS & KEYS will be available for purchase at all tour dates, as well as the official Cold War Kids webstore.
