Trailblazing pop star Hayley Kiyoko has officially released her hugely anticipated sophomore album, PANORAMA, available now via Atlantic Records HERE. Co-written by Hayley and produced by Kiyoko, Danja (Beyoncé, Britney Spears) and Pat Morrissey & Kill Dave, the transformative 12-track collection features previously released singles, “For The Girls,” “Deep In The Woods,” “Chance,” and “Found My Friends” and arrives alongside an emotionally raw visual for the album’s cinematic and orchestral title track, available to stream now HERE.
“I went through a period of time after my last album where I’d lost my confidence and my self-worth. Thankfully I was surrounded by friends and family who kept me grounded, always supporting me in my lowest moments and reminding me who I was along the way. ‘Panorama’ was the last song I wrote for this album, in a moment of clarity to enjoy the present and not let my trauma define me. One of my favorite lyrics from this song is ‘I’m done confusing all these ashes with my worth,’ which is a metaphor for when we measure our own value only by our struggles and hardships, but in reality, our worth is unwavering. We just need to give ourselves the space to appreciate the highs and the lows of this beautiful journey.” – HAYLEY KIYOKO
To celebrate the arrival of PANORAMA, Hayley hosted a release event last night at Lighthouse LA where fans and tastemakers were immersed in the album’s sonic and visual world for the very first time. Kiyoko celebrated the release day by joining BlueListTV live on Twitch’s front page for an exclusive look into the new album and an interactive chat with fans HERE.
In a few weeks, Hayley will take PANORAMA on the road as she joins Lauv as special guest on his “All 4 Nothing Tour,” kicking off August 11 at the Armory in Minneapolis, MN and highlighted by stops at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom (August 26 and 27) and Los Angeles’ famed Greek Theatre (September 9). For complete details and ticket information, please visit hayleykiyoko.lnk.to/LauvTour.
Hayley first announced PANORAMA alongside the release of standout single, “For The Girls,” a bass-boosted mission statement that followed the effervescent “Chance” and self-affirming “Found My Friends”. Joined by a self-directed music video starring Kiyoko in a romantic queer parody of America’s favorite dating show, “For The Girls” was met with instant critical praise from Billboard, Rolling Stone, People, NYLON, Stereogum, Cosmopolitan and more. Watch the official video, complete with chaotic and hysterical reality melodrama, and approaching 2.7M views.
Since the release of “For The Girls,” Hayley graced the cover of Teen Vogue’s Music issue, performed at the first-ever Pride reception at Vice President Kamala Harris’ DC residence, and shared “Deep In The Woods,” which offered fans the first official glimpse into the visual world of PANORAMA.
