CO-HEADLINING U.S. TOUR:
BEBE & BASSY TOUR 2017 KICKS OFF OCTOBER 16
Bay Area singer-songwriter Marc E. Bassy has released his debut album, Gossip Columns, via Republic Records today. Listen HERE. The album features star-studded assists from Kehlani, KYLE, YG, Bobby Brackins, Hailee Steinfeld, Thundercat and G-EAZY (including their platinum-certified song “You and Me”). Earlier this summer Bassy launched the first single and remix from his new body of work with “Plot Twist” f/ KYLE and “Plot Twist (Remix f/ Hailee Steinfeld),” which have garnered a combined 16M+ Spotify streams. “So Simple” f/ G-EAZY has already racked up over 1M+ Spotify streams in merely a couple weeks.
While Bassy has been a much buzzed-about singer/songwriter since the release of 2016’s Groovy People EP, Gossip Columns further showcases Bassy’s recognizable crooning, amplifies his song-crafting capabilities and takes the listener on a themed-journey into his personal world. “I chose this album title because these tracks are essentially sensationalized stories from my personal life, experience and observation,” says Bassy. “I have always dug into these stories as sources for inspiration, and being based in the muck and mire of Los Angeles, a tabloid-ish picture is what I have painted within this album.” Catch Bassy reveal more about the songs on Gossip Coumns and air some of the new tracks this weekend on Beats 1’s Noisey Radio (Saturday at 9amEST/6amPST & Sunday 9pmEST/6pmPST).
