NEW ALBUM: SARA KAYS | STRUCK BY LIGHTING
Nashville-based singer-songwriter Sara Kays has unveiled her new EP titled "Struck By Lightning" via Atlantic Records. Included is her viral breakup anthem, "Remember That Night?", the EP is highlighted by the new single and title track featuring UK-based indie-pop artist Cavetown. Capturing the nuances of Sara's confessionally quirky lyrics, glassy melodies, "Struck By Lightning" is accompanied by an official music video co-starring both artists. "A friend of mine struggled a lot with depression and didn't necessarily always talk to me about it," said Sara. "It can be frustrating when you know someone's going through something, but they won't say anything. So, the idea is, 'I'll sit out there with you in silence.' Around the same time, my 'For You' page had many trending videos of people lying down in driveways in the rain. I brought all of that together, and it was really cool to duet with Cavetown. I'm basically saying, 'I'd get struck by lightning for you." The 22-year-old will celebrate the EP release with her first-ever international headline tour. The Struck By Lightning Tour begins October 9th at San Francisco, CA's Brick & Mortar Music Hall and then travels North America and Europe through late November. Kays will bookend her headline tour with a US-run alongside Mt. Joy (August 24-29) and a UK tour supporting Cavetown (December 2-15).
