grandson has shared “Peaches,” a collaborative new track with K.Flay. The song, which is available now at all DSPs, marks the first release of grandson’s XXwhy acoustic campaign. Each month, leading up to the 2020 Presidential Election, grandson will release an acoustic collaboration as well as an XXwhy podcast, creating discourse between creatives working in music and activism. The podcast, hosted by grandson and recorded at idobi Radio, will feature acoustic performances of the collaborative tracks and discussions with the collaborators, activists, and more. Episode 1 featuring K.Flay premieres March 1st on idobi at 6:00PM PST. An official “Peaches” music video will arrive in the coming weeks, with new studio music from grandson expected later this year.
Furthermore, grandson has partnered with Headcount and Gibson Guitars for the XXwhy campaign, focusing in on voter registration for the upcoming election. Each XXwhy track released will be accompanied by “Text Voter XX to 40649” in the title. Fans who text the number will be registered to receive updates about voter registration in their area and can join the “me +3” initiative which helps voters’ friends to register as well. Upon texting the number, participants will also be entered to win a signed Epiphone guitar by grandson and the featured artist for that month’s track.

This March, grandson will head out on a Canadian headline tour which kicks off March 17th at Victoria’s Sugar Nightclub (tour itinerary below). Following Canadian dates, grandson will head to Europe to support A Day To Remember on a May run, followed by a series of North American festival appearances. The new tour dates arrive on the heels of grandson’s recent collaboration with Whethan – “All In My Head” – and his joint track with Moby Rich, “Happy Pill,” which serves as an exploration into the dangers of addiction. “Happy Pill” is joined by a Joe Cappa directed music video, which is streaming now on grandson’s official YouTube channel.
