Headline tour kicks off next month + Supporting girl in red on European tour
Part of Rockstar Energy Drink’s Spotlight Studio’s activation, GRAMMY®-nominated artist, Alexander 23 releases a stripped back version of his track “Cosplay”. On the euphoric rock-influenced yet melancholy track the rising artist explores past relationships. His honest lyricism over acoustic guitar evokes raw emotions, “’Cause we’ve both been here before, and baby I don’t know what to think. Should we call it quits before we go from friends to enemies?” Listen to the reimagined version HERE via Interscope Records.
Earlier this year the Chicago-native released his debut album, Aftershock which features collaborations with Dan Nigro, Olivia Rodrigo, Amy Allen, Charlie Puth, and Jeremy Zucker, who co-wrote “Cosplay.” The project went on to receive support from Rolling Stone, Billboard, V Magazine, People Magazine, ET Online, and more. With Aftershock, Alexander 23 had a whirlwind year. It began when the pop savant released the Olivia Rodrigo co-written “Hate Me If It Helps,” and went on to include critical acclaim for singles like the “Crash,” as well as support slots for like-minded artists John Mayer and Tate McRae. This summer he played several festival dates including a headline hometown show as well as sets at Lollapalooza, Life Is Beautiful, and Firefly in Dover, Delaware. This spring he’s set to open for girl in red on a string of European dates and in the fall, he will embark on his first headlining tour of North America, the UK, and Europe; dates and ticketing info are HERE.
