NOAH KAHAN UNVEILS VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “MESS”

TOURING WITH JAMES BAY IN NORTH AMERICA THROUGH MARCH AND WITH DEAN LEWIS IN EUROPE AND THE U.K. IN APRIL

WATCH HERE

Today, Noah Kahan releases the video for his new single, “Mess.” Watch it HERE! Produced by Kahan’s frequent collaborator Joel Little (Lorde, Khalid), the song has already received praise from Billboard, NYLON, Idolator, EARMILK, Baeble, Ones To Watch and more.

Of the inspiration behind the video, Noah says, “I initially called ‘Mess’ ‘Feed the Dogs’ because my pups were a huge part of the inspiration for the tune. When I was in Vermont after high school, they were my only company during what was a lonesome time. With that in mind, I knew I had to make the music video be centered around dogs. Despite my dogs’ jealousy, we got 11 trained professional dogs (who were way more famous than me) for the shoot in LA and shot a video I really loved. Hope you guys like it too!”

“Mess” follows the global success of Kahan’s breakout singles, “Hurt Somebody” and “False Confidence.” With over 200 million global streams to date, “Hurt Somebody” is triple platinum in Australia and gold in Canada, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland and New Zealand; and it peaked at #1 on the Top 40 radio charts in Australia for three weeks, making it the third most played song on the Australian airwaves in all of 2018 where Noah has become one of the most buzzworthy new acts. “False Confidence” continues to grow with over 16 million streams to date and peaked in the top 5 at Triple A radio in the U.S.

Noah Kahan is currently on the road with James Bay this month on his North American tour. He will also be joining Dean Lewis on his headline tour in Europe and the U.K. in April. See the full list of upcoming dates below. Tickets are available here

In two short years, music quite literally carried 22-year-old singer, songwriter and artist Noah Kahan around the world—a long way from his native Strafford, VT (pop. 1,045) and the 133-acre tree farm where he resides. On the trip, the alternative troubadour notched an international hit in the form of “Hurt Somebody” [feat. Julia Michaels], while his singles “Young Blood” and “False Confidence” also racked up millions of streams and he sold out headline tours in North America, Europe, and the UK and hit the road with artists like George Ezra and Leon Bridges. Not to mention, he has garnered critical acclaim from Billboard, Stereogum, Clash, Idolator, and more. In the midst of this whirlwind, he assembled his upcoming full-length debut album. The first single “Mess” illuminates his marked growth as a songwriter and storyteller by way of its biting lyrics and undeniable sing-a-long, underscoring a heartwarming and often hilarious portrait of hometown longing.

Noah Kahan “Mess”

Today, Noah Kahan debuts his new single, “Mess,” from his highly anticipated debut album set for release this spring. Listen to “Mess” HERE!

Produced by Kahan’s frequent collaborator Joel Little (Lorde, Khalid), Noah wrote “Mess” last fall while he was home in Vermont in between sold out tours. Of the song, Noah explains, “My life has taken a 180° turn. I’m on a very different path than what I thought I would do. I get nostalgic for the locale where I grew up because the scenery is so beautiful. Going from this to bigger cities and tours is crazy for me. The truth is—regardless of where I’ve gone—my parents still yell at me to pick up the dogs’ shit when I’m back home.”

 He continues, “‘Mess’ is a song I wrote during a very overwhelming and generally sad time in my life. Being able to work on this song and bring these feelings to light was a lifeline for me, and I hope it provides you with similar comfort.”

 “Mess” follows the global success of Kahan’s breakout singles, “Hurt Somebody” and “False Confidence.” With over 200 million global streams to date, “Hurt Somebody” is triple platinum in Australia and gold in Canada, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland and New Zealand; and it peaked at #1 on the Top 40 radio charts in Australia for three weeks, making it the third most played song on the Australian airwaves in all of 2018 where Noah has become one of the most buzzworthy new acts. “False Confidence” continues to grow with over 15 million streams to date and is currently sitting in the top 5 at Triple A radio in the U.S.

 Noah Kahan will be hitting the road with James Bay this month on his North American tour, performing at New York’s iconic Beacon Theatre for two nights on March 12 and 13 and at Los Angeles’ The Wiltern on March 25. He will also be joining Dean Lewis on his headline tour in Europe and the U.K. in April. See the full list of upcoming dates below. Tickets are available now at www.NoahKahan.com/tour.

Noah Kahan “False Confidence” and Tour Dates

Today, global singer/songwriter sensation Noah Kahan unveils his latest single, “False Confidence,”—listen and share HERE. “False Confidence” sets the stage for further music to be released by Kahan this fall.

Noah Kahan’s first-ever North American, European and UK headlining tour kicks off next month on October 3rd in Atlanta at Vinyl. Shows are quickly selling out, including dates in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Washington, DC, Toronto, Denver and more. See the full list of tour dates below. Tickets are available now at www.NoahKahan.com/tour.

Of his new single, Noah explains, “‘False Confidence’ is a song I wrote when I felt like I was trying too hard to be what I thought an artist should be, instead of who I was. I felt like I was losing my identity in trying to reach for some unattainable picture of a successful person; confident, polished, secure. I wrote ‘False Confidence’ to remember not to take myself so seriously.”

“False Confidence” arrives hot on the heels of his 2018 global smash, “Hurt Somebody” feat. Grammy-nominated Julia Michaels.

Growing up in Strafford, VT (pop. 1045), small town wonderment led Noah to explore songwriting early on, emulating musical influences like Paul Simon, Ben Howard and The Lumineers. Kahan writes with thought-provoking realism about self-doubt and fear, while highlighting the intricacies of relationships with an unpolished sincerity. That approach, along with his head-turning vocals, has brought Kahan a long way from Strafford in a very short amount of time. As a senior in high school, Noah’s songwriting attracted the attention of world-class songwriters Dan Wilson (Adele), Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes), Chris DeStefano (Carrie Underwood), among others. Word spread quickly within the songwriting community, and it wasn’t long after graduating high school that Kahan decided to defer his college acceptance to pursue a career in music, eventually straying from the 133-acre tree farm he grew up on to work with Lorde & Khalid’s producer Joel Little. The two recorded six songs together, including Noah’s debut single, “Young Blood,” which entered Spotify’s US Viral Chart at #5 and has cracked over 20 million streams to date.

Noah followed this with his global smash, “Hurt Somebody” feat. Grammy-nominated Julia Michaels. Available on his 2018 debut EP, Hurt Somebody, the song charted at #1 on Australian national radio for three weeks, while also charting in the Top 40 at Hot AC stateside. “Hurt Somebody”’s total streams are over the 120 million-mark, and it is certified double platinum in Australia and gold in Canada, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland and New Zealand. Kahan made his late-night U.S. television debut performing “Hurt Somebody” on Late Night With Stephen Colbert earlier this year. As “Hurt Somebody” became an international hit, Kahan sold out venues on a headlining tour across the UK, Europe and Australia, as well as supported George Ezra and LP on their spring North American tours. Noah returns with “False Confidence” as he gears up to release more new music this fall.
