New track “Hangover Blues” available everywhere now - HERE
Last night (5.6), Amythyst Kiah made her late-night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, performing her Grammy-nominated song, “Black Myself.” Watch the full performance above and here.
“Black Myself” is the lead single off her forthcoming album and Rounder Records debut Wary + Strange out June 18th. The radically reimagined version of her Grammy-nominated song departs from the mid-tempo acoustic original recorded by Our Native Daughters, the all-women-of-color supergroup she co-founded with Rhiannon Giddens, Leyla McCalla and Allison Russell. The track has been hailed by The New York Times, Rolling Stone, MTV, Billboard, and NPR, who called it a “breakthrough for an artist on the rise.” The accompanying video for “Black Myself” debuted on MTV, BET and CMTplatforms. Watch here.
Today (5.7), Amythyst shares the third track from Wary + Strange, “Hangover Blues.” The track documents a tumultuous period in her late 20’s when she took up drinking in order to ease the social anxiety that had plagued her since childhood. Featuring production by Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers, Amos Lee, Andrew Bird), and a brilliantly untethered guitar performance from Blake Mills (Fiona Apple, Alabama Shakes), “Hangover Blues'' perfectly captures the angst of being stuck in a bad habit, its swampy rhythms echoing the sticky unease of morning-after regret.
