Katy Kirby Announces New Album Blue Raspberry, 2024 Tour Dates

Katy Kirby has announced her sophomore album Blue Raspberry, out January 26th, 2024 via ANTI-. The announcement arrives with the record’s latest single “Table,” as well as a new run of 2024 tour dates to celebrate its release.

Blue Raspberry largely documents Kirby’s process of recognizing her own queerness, and the subsequent, bittersweet ache of her first queer relationship. “This record is much more personal than I intended it to be,” Kirby said in a press release. “I was in a period of experimenting with how I write, and what came out was a song about a woman, about an imagined her — I didn’t think I was writing as or about myself, but these kinds of songs kept coming out, with fragments of overlapping lyrics linking them together like beads on a string. They seemed to inhabit the same world.”

“Table” sees Kirby branch out from the the folksy rock of her debut album Cool Dry Placepairing her penchant for sticky melodies with slowcore-inspired leaden guitars. “[‘Table’ is] a thematic outlier on this record, and more of a lighthearted leftover from my god-haunted past lift,” Kirby added. “t’s the last on the album and sort of serves as an epilogue or outro for the rest of the songs. Most importantly it’s quite fun to sing.”

Kirby’s tour dates begin in Washington, DC on February 3rd, going across the US before the finale at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom on March 8th. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 27th at 10:00 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster.
