Alternative rock artist KRISTEENYOUNG has announced the release date of her full-length album, THE SUBSET, scheduled to be released on September 4, 2019. While this is her ninth record, this is the first one Kristeen has produced on her own. Aside from a few instrumentations, the entirety of the album was a solo effort.
She explains that “I wrote, arranged, produced, mixed, and played almost every instrument except live drums, which were played by Jefferson ‘Baby Jef’ White. It was important to do this one by myself. Even though I have co-produced most of my albums before, people will still ‘forget’ to include my name when they are talking about who produced the albums. And I think it’s because the other co-producer was male and famous. I thought I would take that option of a mistake out of the equation for people.”
Kristeen is known for her unique and experimental sound which she explores this in THE SUBSET. She describes the record as “… a pretty wide scope of styles so I hope people can get lost in it and really have an experience. When I was writing it I was trying to remember what it was like when I just LOVED music and had no knowledge of any other part of the music business or world. I wanted it to sound fresh and naturally moving, like when I was a kid, but at the same time speaking on the now.”
To celebrate the release of the album, Kristeen will be playing residences in New York City, San Fransisco, Los Angeles, and London. Show schedules are posted below and you can find out more on Kristeen’s official website.
