Stacey Ryan has shared her new single Bad For Me ahead of a run of UK tour dates including Manchester Academy 2.
The Manchester gig is one of 3 UK dates Stacey Ryan is playing supporting Joshua Bassett. She will then perform at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival.
New track Bad For Me features falsettos, jazzy horns and soulful production as Stacey Ryan set out her stall for what is to come next. The singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and self-proclaimed queen of Jazz-tok has shared the track just ahead of Friday’s (7 April) release of debut EP I Don’t Know What Love Is.
Stacey Ryan landed her breakthrough with Don’t Text Me When You’re Drunk, a callab with Zai1k which picked up 19 million global streams and landing her at the centre of a TikTok trend. The deeply personal account of her dating experience featured soul-pop, percussion and piano work alongside a refusal to compromise her needs which resonated with listeners around the world.
The classically trained jazz pianist who also plays guitar, bass, ukulele and trumpet has won plaudits for her lyrical storytelling whilst merging soul with pop and embracing melodies, rhythm and song structure which reflect her jazz background.
