South African-raised, London-living musician Baby Queen has unveiled her debut mixtape, The Yearbook. Heralded by the new single Narcissist, the release follows up the singers EP, Medicine.
Documenting the past four years, the candid and compelling release serves as a coming-of-age tale, and features the singles These Drugs, Dover Beach, American Dream with MAY-A and You Shaped Hole.
“It’s an American coming-of-age film,” the singer says of the release. “It feels confusing, happy, free, lonely… all of these things you go through when you are growing up.” She adds, “I want the listener to feel like they’re on the top of a London bus, travelling through a city they’ve moved to for the very first time, seeing the world through new eyes."
The musical project of Bella Latham, Baby Queen was born out of feeling like a misfit in London life, compelling the musician to write songs about her exposure to a world of fake personalities and self-obsession. With her debut EP out later this month, the singer will support fellow British musician YUNGBLUD on his virtual tour this month.
