“every choice i have ever made has gotten me to this very moment,” says GAYLE. “some i made subconsciously, and some i’ve made deliberately. either way, every moment of the human experience i chose to live made me who i am. i’m not always proud of who i am or things i’ve done, but i am who i am, and i can’t change that. a study of the human experience volume two talks about the moments that happened in my life that lead to where i am. i don’t always do the healthiest, the smartest, the most mature, the most reasonable or responsible things- i just do what i want in the moment and learn from my mistakes.”
a study of the human experience volume two is highlighted by such acclaimed new tracks as “snow angels,” “indieedgycool,” “god has a sense of humor,” and “fmk (with blackbear),” the latter of which instantly earned over 1 million streams in the first weekend following its release. The playfully chaotic duet – which sees GAYLE joining forces with multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and producer blackbear – arrived alongside a delightfully homicidal animated video, directed by award-winning Belgian director Chris Ullens (Rex Orange County, Poppy) and streaming now on YouTube.
A packed year for GAYLE is highlighted most recently by her Nashville Songwriter Awards nod in their “10 Songs I Wish I’d Written” list. 2022 has also seen GAYLE traveling on her own sold-out headline run, shows alongside My Chemical Romance, and tours supporting Tate McRae and AJR. The 18-year-old, Nashville-based artist is currently lighting up an array of festival stages around the world, with recent performances at Lollapalooza, the UK’s Reading and Leeds, and Firefly Music Festival.
This summer marked the one year anniversary of GAYLE’s 2x RIAA platinum-certified, 2 billion-streaming, worldwide #1 breakthrough hit, “abcdefu.” Declared “the breakout song of 2022” by NYLON, “abcdefu” proved a landmark debut for GAYLE, holding #1 on the Billboard Global 200 for nine consecutive weeks while peaking at #3 on the Billboard “Hot 100” after spending three consecutive weeks atop Top 40 radio charts. Indeed, as Billboard wrote, “Few songs will end up being as defining for the past year in pop music as GAYLE’s breakout hit.” “abcdefu” is featured on GAYLE’s debut EP, a study of the human experience volume one.
GAYLE has earned an increasing list of honors and accolades in recent months, including earning two MTV Video Music Awards nominations, being named a Billboard Music Award finalist, earning featured placement on Billboard’s influential “21 Under 21” list, and Variety’s 2022 “Power of Young Hollywood” Impact List. In addition, GAYLE has received worldwide media attention spanning Rolling Stone, The New York Times, PEOPLE, Seventeen, ELLE
