American Christian music artist, Tori Kelly will release “SOLITUDE”, a five-song EP, on August 14, that she recorded at home during quarantine.
The two-time GRAMMY winner announced the track listing today and shared one of its five songs – her poignant version of Drake’s “Time Flies.”
“Time Flies” is available HERE and watch Tori’s acoustic, at-home performance video for the track below.
“I’ve never been more thankful for my home studio than I have during this season of being quarantined,”.
“In some ways, it felt like I was going back to my roots, when I would be in my room, making songs and posting covers on YouTube.
A lot of change has happened since my last album, so it felt great to just freely write what was on my heart and be inspired by different stories.
I had so much fun creating this EP and I’m excited to share this new chapter of my music.”
Tori penned three of the EP’s five tracks at home. After recording acoustic demos, she worked remotely with producers Monro, Spencer Stewart and Stint to complete “Value” and “Don’t Take Me Home.”
On the funky, exuberant “Unbothered” – a much-needed dose of hope, looking to the good times ahead – she collaborated with writers Chloe George and Micah Premnath and producer Jorgen Odegard (Imagine Dragons, P!nk, Adam Lambert).
The EP closes with the highly personal “Glad,” a soulful ballad that Tori wrote for her husband, producing and recording the song herself. See below for track listing.
