MONO is K.Flay's fifth full-length record, written after waking up in August last year with total hearing loss in her right ear. She didn't know if she could ever make music again.
“For a while it was upsetting to even listen to music, so at some point I had to ask myself, ‘Can I still do this? Do I still want to?’” she says. But before long, she found herself returning to the studio.
“I felt an urgency I hadn’t experienced in quite some time,” she reveals. “It was like this massive sensory change had put me back into a beginner’s mind, where I felt so free but also compelled to put everything I had into making the record great.”
MONO is out September 15 via Giant Music.
