JENSEN MCRAE RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM “ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?”

2022 TOUR DATES WITH AMOS LEE AND CORINNE BAILEY RAE

Los Angeles singer-songwriter Jensen McRae has released her debut album Are You Happy Now?, out today via Human Re Sources. Featuring recent release “Happy Girl” and viral singles “Immune” and “Wolves”, the album joins and expands on her debut EP, Who Hurt You?, a project that catapulted McRae into the spotlight and garnered millions of streams worldwide. 

Throughout the full project, the listener is taken through thoughtful interludes that depict authentic conversations with oneself in the pursuit to be happy. A breakthrough artist to watch in 2021, McRae flexes her pen in Are You Happy Now? – strategic tracks such as “Machines” and “My Ego Dies At The End”showcase internal learning through vulnerability while new track “Make You Proud”, a sweet winded message to McRae’s future self contains the rich, buttery deep vocals that often find the 24 year old compared to Tracy Chapman. 

McRae has been steadily building momentum, highlighted with the release of her homage to Phoebe Bridgers, “Immune”. After a clip of herself spoofing a Phoebe Bridges cover garnered her over 2.3 million views on Twitter, Mcrae went into the studio with Rahki (Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, EarthGang, Sampa The Great, etc) to write and record a full version of the song. “Immune” earned her media praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Vulture,UPROXX, NY Post, Billboard, Stereogumand more, positioning her as one of the most exciting new voices in pop music.

Born in Santa Monica and raised in the Woodland Hills suburbs of Los Angeles in a bi-racial Black and Jewish family, McRae was immersed in music at a young age. While in high school, she attended GRAMMY Camp in Los Angeles and received a full ride to attend the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music. 2022 is already shaping up to be a commanding year for McRae as she is gearing up to hit the road on Amos Lee’s 2022 Spring Tour this April with additional dates supporting Corinne Bailey Rae to come this Summer. With a sound inspired by Joni Mitchell and Tracy Chapman paired with a natural feel for songwriting that personifies the human experience, McRae is en route to cementing herself as an artist who is here to stay.
