Tori Kelly has been busy at home during quarantine. The two-time Grammy winner has announced the track listing for her new EP, entitled Solitude, which will release August 14.
“I’ve never been more thankful for my home studio than I have during this season of being quarantined,” says Tori Kelly. “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.”
Kelly has worked remotely with producers Monro, Spencer Stewart, and Stint to complete her new songs “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 ends with a personal ballad entitled “Glad,” which Kelly wrote for her husband and produced herself.
With her 2020 European tour cut short due to COVID-19, Kelly has been collaborating with other artists online via her “QuaranTEA with Tori” series (you can check out the highlights here) while working on new music.
