Today, LA-based singer-songwriter and boisterous rising star, Kyle Dion, releases ‘SASSY,’ his bold, unfiltered new album via AWAL. The new record marks a new era for the “rising star” (PAPER) as he sheds his melancholy in favor of more bright and buoyant tunes. Inspired by his time touring and exploring international territory in support of his debut album 2019’s SUGA, the upcoming project is bold, unfiltered, and flaunts an unleashed sound with a “no rules” mission statement.

“I made SASSY because it was how I was feeling during this time of my life,” Kyle shares about the record. “I wanted to do something that was risk taking and wanted to challenge what people expected of me. This album is something that I feel anyone can relate to. I named it SASSY because the album embodies that attitude and has a lot of back-talk, big mouth vibes. At times it’s narcissistic, but also it was fun expressing myself however I want without any repercussions.”

To create an effective turn-up record, Kyle needed to access sides of his personality he hadn’t explored before musically. Once he loosened up and became comfortable laughing at himself and the process, in part due to his light-hearted relationship with album collaborators, producers, and friends Chris Hartz (Childish Gambino) and Bijou Choder (Brasstracks), he found the sound of the album, a joyous and exclamatory soundtrack to better times. Whether it’s going outside for the first time in a year-plus or greeting your friends and staying out all night for renewed camaraderie, SASSY is an anthem for the world to come. 

“People are ready to have fun,” says Dion. “Nobody wants to be sad as hell anymore — we already did that.”
