Pennsylvania based artist Kiley Lotz, or more commonly known as her artist name Petal, has shared her new song, “Better Than You.” The track will be featured on her highly anticipated sophomore album, Magic Gone, set to be released on June 15, 2018.

Last year, Petal released an EP titled Comfort which featured two original tracks and a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Silver Spring.” Lotz explained on Twitter that “Better Than You” was about “how the music industry makes you question everything about urself and if your a garbage person but you love what you do so it’s hard.” She also stated that Magic Gone is about some extreme recent life changes she has endured:

I was a closeted queer person struggling with chronic mental health disorders; terrified that if I tried to deal with these two major issues in my life I would lose everyone and everything I loved. Coming out was the beginning of a long and continuing process of self-actualization, of taking a hard look at myself and the problems I had and how I could fix them. This record is the result of being the most honest I have ever been in my life, and the constant battle of overcoming the thought that, “maybe if I were just someone else completely, everything would be better.”

Petal will be co-headlining a US tour with Australian rock trio Camp Cope. The tour dates are posted below, to learn more about Petal’s music check out her website.
