‘Stay Close To Music’, the forthcoming new studio album from Mykki Blanco, is unlike anything they have released before. Adventurous and expansive, it shatters any previously held assumptions about Mykki’s artistry, leaving them free to define their sound for themselves.
The LP’s lead single, the Lou Reed-indebted ‘French Lessons’, which features Kelsey Lu (ANOHNI lends a feature on the album version). “The song is a reflection on the possibility of true love, on the notion that one truly can experience what we see in the Hollywood films,” Mykki reveals.Leading to ‘French Lessons’ Mykki has shared ‘Your Love Was a Gift’ and ‘Family Ties’ which features Michael Stipe. The tracks saw support from the likes of Rolling Stone, Guaridan, MOJO, NME, LOBF, CLASH, and more. In addition to Stipe, Stay Close To Music also has features from Saul Williams, ANOHNI, Dianna Gordon, Devendra Banhart, Jónsi and more.
Mykki Blanco is an artist revered for their fearless ability to evolve, placing their creative exploration at the forefront of their career. With ‘Stay Close To Music’, Mykki Blanco is leveling up. By stepping into unchartered territory untethered and free, they have fulfilled their ambitions and created a rich, complex and accomplished sound that belongs entirely to them and which only solidifies their status as one of the world’s most innovative musical pioneers.
