Illinois independent country artist Alexandra Kay has announced the release date for her long-awaited debut album, All I’ve Ever Known, coming on Thursday, 26 October 2023. We love a short album roll-out cycle.
“My loves, I am excited to give to you my debut album,” Kay revealed on Facebook overnight (13 September. “A peek inside the past decade, who I was and who I’ve become, what I thought I knew and what I’ve learned. It is a story of the hardest year I’ve ever faced wrapped in honesty and vulnerability.
“It’s truly ‘All I’ve Ever Known’ and it’s all yours October 26th. The healing continues this fall in 34 cities across the country. I can’t wait to hug you, to hear your stories and to start this new chapter together.”
Kay will tour across the US throughout November and December to celebrate the release of her debut album with special guests Jordana Bryant and Haley Mae Campbell.
On Sunday, 1 October, Australian Alexandra Kay fans can catch her performing an exclusive headline show at Mary’s Underground, Circular Quay, Sydney.
“With a voice reminiscent of Dolly Parton, Alison Kraus and Lee Ann Womack, she brings country music back to its roots,” tour promoters Destroy All Lines commented in a press release. You can find tickets here.
Kay will also appear at the 2023 edition of Savannah In The Round festival in Mareeba, Cairns Hinterland. The festival takes place 6-8 October and stars Aussie icons Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers, Daryl Braithwaite, Russell Morris, Kate Ceberano, Brad Cox, Fanny Lumsden, Casey Barnes, James Johnston and many more.
“The thought that I’m finally making my way to Australia is wild to me. It’s a place most small-town girls like me can only dream of visiting,” Kay said in a press release. “Playing at Savannah in the Round feels like the start of an exciting new chapter in my touring career.
“I get the opportunity to sing my songs to an audience that has constantly supported me by streaming my music over the last few years, and I am so excited to hear them sing these songs back to me for the very first time!
“I'm coming with open arms, ready to experience everything Australia has to offer. So pumped for my first show in the land down under!” You can buy tickets to Savannah In The Round festival here.
