Kailee Morque’s New Queer Pop Power Anthem

KAILEE MORGUE TEAMS UP WITH HAYLEY KIYOKO TO RELEASE QUEER POP POWER ANTHEM “HEADCASE”

LISTEN HERE

Today, critically acclaimed gothic pop songstress Kailee Morgue returns with her new single, “Headcase,” featuring multi-talented artist, songwriter and director Hayley Kiyoko. Produced by CJ Baran [Panic! At the Disco, Carly Rae Jepsen, Melanie Martinez], this empowering queer pop power anthem features a sample of The Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind?.” Written by Morgue and recorded alongside Baran, the song was inspired by Kailee’s struggles with her mental health and bipolar disorder.

LISTEN TO “HEADCASE” FEAT. HAYLEY KIYOKO HERE!

Of “Headcase,” Kailee says, “When I wrote this song, I knew I wanted a strong female artist like Hayley on the track to not only represent the LGBTQ community, but to help translate the idea of owning your issues.”

Hayley chimes in, saying, “I’m such a fan of Kailee’s music, and when she sent me ‘Headcase’ I really connected with the song right away. I was in a dark place of figuring out my own mental health at the time, and I related so much to the lyrics. That’s such a normal feeling, like you’re going crazy sometimes and can’t quite make sense of your emotions. It just felt like a perfect song for us to collaborate on.”

“Headcase” exclusive premiered with an interview between Kailee and Hayley on PAPER, who praises the track saying, “‘Headcase’ boomerangs from gentle, moody synths on the verses, to a glitchy, explosive chorus full of emo-tinged melodrama.”

The song follows the release of Kailee’s 2017 breakout single, “Medusa,” which catapulted her into an overnight success. After signing with Republic Records, she released her debut EP and a slew of critically acclaimed singles, including “F**k U,” “Do You Feel This Way” (feat. Whethan) and most recently “Siren.” “Headcase” sets the stage for Kailee’s upcoming project set for release this year.

ABOUT KAILEE MORGUE

Magic takes many forms. In the case of Kailee Morgue, it happened in the span of one unbelievable year. Not only did the critically acclaimed Phoenix-based gothic pop siren manifest a spellbinding signature style in 2018, but she also underwent a lifetime of transformation in that time. Musically, she released her breakout hits, “Medusa,” “Siren,” “Do You Feel This Way” feat. Whethan and “F**k U.” The artist earned acclaim from The New York Times, MTV, The FADER, NYLON, Highsnobiety, Pigeons & Planes, PAPER, Vice’s i-D, and Teen Vogue who proclaimed her among the “Musicians You Need to Be Listening to In 2019.” Not to mention, she embarked on her very first national tour. Personally, she turned 20, came out to her family, embraced her bipolar disorder, tattooed her face and even cut her multicolored locks. All of these experiences informed, impacted and influenced Kailee’s music in 2019 and beyond, as she emerged from “night to day.” Working alongside frequent collaborator CJ Baran [Panic! at the Disco, Carly Rae Jepsen, Melanie Martinez], she succinctly refined her sound. Kailee’s new single “Headcase” feat. Hayley Kiyoko from her forthcoming project was written and recorded in a five-hour fit of inspiration alongside Baran, an empowering anthem inspired by her relationship with her bipolar disorder. The track builds from an airy sample of The Pixies’ classic “Where Is My Mind?” over glitchy electronics into a chantable chorus. Dueting with Hayley, Kailee bravely declares, “I’m a headcase, but you love me, I’m a mistake, I warned you.”

ABOUT HAYLEY KIYOKO

Multi-talented artist/director/actor/dancer Hayley Kiyoko has become one of the most celebrated new artists in the pop landscape since releasing her debut album Expectations. According to Rolling Stone, the album’s singles “‘Curious’ and ‘What I Need’ (featuring Kehlani) have placed her at the forefront of an unapologetically queer pop movement.” Coined by Kiyoko and her fans, #20GAYTEEN turned out to be a year full of firsts for the rising pop star who continues to break down barriers at every turn. After being nominated for two VMAs (Best New Artist and Push Artist Of The Year), Hayley attended her first-ever awards show to perform “Curious” and take home the moon person for Push Artist Of The Year. Her captivating live performance soared to new heights with a Coachella festival debut and a nationwide headline tour, which sold out every date including two nights at New York City’s Irving Plaza. Not stopping, Kiyoko went on to join Panic! At The Disco on their “Pray for the Wicked Tour,” performing in arenas across North America. She also took the stage in a stadium for the first time when pop icon Taylor Swift brought her out as a surprise guest on her Reputation World Tour. Kiyoko created a storm that drew attention from not only fans, but the media as well. She stunned on the covers of NYLON and PAPER, and was named to the No. 4 spot on NPR’s list “The 21st Century’s Most Influential Women Musicians,” right behind Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rhianna. Kiyoko made her national TV debut performing “Curious” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and went on to perform fan-favorite “He’ll Never Love You (HNLY)” on Late Night with Seth Meyers. She also turned heads in New York City attending her first New York Fashion Week, sitting front row at shows including Christian Siriano and Opening Ceremony. Ending the year on an extremely special high note, Kiyoko was honored with the Rising Star Award at Billboard’s annual Women in Music event in December. With absolutely no signs of slowing down, Hayley kicked off 2019 on the road for her sold-out European Encore headline tour. For more information, visit www.hayleykiyokoofficial.com.

Kailee Morgue US Tour With Poppy

Today Kailee Morgue announces she will be heading on a U.S. fall tour with Poppy for her Am I A Girl? Tour. Artist pre-sale tickets go on sale Wednesday, July 11th at 10am local timeand general on-sale begins Friday, July 13th at 10am local time at www.kaileemorgue.com.

Having just sold out her debut headline shows in New York and Los Angeles, Morgue jumps to theaters by joining Poppy’s fall twenty-date run through North America, including top cities Los Angeles (The Wiltern on October 31st), New York (Irving Plaza on November 20th) and Washington D.C. (9:30 Club on November 24th).

Recently Morgue released “Do You Feel This Way (Feat. Whethan). Check out the track here!

Of the song, Morgue says, “This is one of my favorite songs I’ve made because it is off axis just enough to blur my perspective between haunting and inviting. Teaming up with Whethan brought the perfect blend of hazy lethargy and upbeat skepticism to the track. It captures the unease of that feeling of not knowing how someone truly feels about you, and it still always makes me want to move when I hear it—it’s so fun to perform.”

“Do You Feel This Way” (feat. Whethan) follows Morgue’s single “F**k U”and her 2017 breakout track, “Medusa,” which catapulted her into an overnight success after she posted a live performance of the song on Twitter. “Medusa” became the title track from her debut EP, which was also released last fall and features her hit single, “Discovery.”

Tattooed, multi-color haired and anime-obsessed 19-year-old Phoenix-based gothic pop siren, Kailee Morgue, casts a sonic spell with her music. A self-described “introvert” and the second oldest of six kids, she found solace in the sounds of fellow sonic sorceresses, such as Stevie Nicks and Gwen Stefani, as well as bands like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and more. By the age of ten, she picked up her first guitar, began quietly penning music and eventually started posting tracks on Soundcloud.

Between a gig at Jack In The Box in 2016, an 18-year-old Morgue found the beat for her breakout track, “Medusa,” on YouTube and cooked up the single. She first teased the track with a brief Twitter video, and it ignited a viral reaction garnering 100,000 “likes” overnight. Over an airy, minimalistic soundscape, Morgue creates a hypnotic and heartfelt melody with haunting and powerful lyrics. “Medusa” peaked at #1 on Hype Machine, was hailed as “Best Track of the Week” by The New York Times, MTV, The Line of Best Fit and Coup de Main and its video premiered on The FADER. As “Medusa” became an underground phenomenon, Morgue inked a deal with Republic Records in the summer of 2017. Further music is set for release this summer.
