Atlantic Records is proud to announce today’s release of “K-12,” the hugely anticipated new album and accompanying full-length film from Melanie Martinez. “K-12” is available now at all music retailers and streaming services.
“K-12” marks Martinez’s long anticipated follow-up to her RIAA platinum certified, 2015 debut album, “CRY BABY.” Produced by Michael Keenan with the exception of one song produced by Kinetics & One Love, the album serves as a soundtrack companion to an eerily enchanting new musical film, written, directed, and starring Martinez.
“Melanie Martinez has put her life into K-12” added Julie Greenwald, COO of Atlantic Records, “that’s why we knew we needed to work with YouTube and YouTube Music to share this visual masterpiece with her global fanbase. The film and album, combined with much more content on her YouTube channel in the coming months, will be an ongoing invitation to the visually enticing K-12 world Melanie created.”
“The K-12 Tour” gets underway October 13th at Washington, D.C.’s All Things Go Fall Classic and then travels North America through late November; European dates follow, beginning December 2nd at Dublin, Ireland’s Olympia Theatre and then continuing through mid-December. Support throughout the North American run comes from Lauren Ruth Ward; with support from Naaz on the European run.
