Cindy Wilson (B52’s)
Announces UK Tour
Shares new single “Brother”

Solo album Change out
1st December via Kill Rock Stars

“With ‘Change’ Wilson was able to experiment with her own creativity and learn about music in an entirely different light. The result is something melodic, calm even, and at times fueled by disco– tinged rhythms”  Billboard
Cindy Wilson has announced her UK tour next February and shares her new single Brother (written  originally performed by 1980s Athens’ band, Oh-OK) from her eagerly anticipated debut solo album Change which is out 1st December 2017 on Kill Rock Stars.

Cindy has already shared the shimmering  first single, “Mystic” hailed by Stereogum as “an excellent slice of icy, synth-streaked new wave.”
Change began for Wilson nearly a decade ago upon her part-time return to her hometown of Athens, GA. She first encountered local multi-instrumentalist Ryan Monahan and drummer Leumuel Hayes when their Beatles tribute band was hired to play her son’s birthday party.  Wilson, Monahan and Hayes began teaming up for gigs, performing classic garage and psychedelic covers, before ultimately hitting the studio to create new music all their own. Athens-based producer/musician Suny Lyons was soon enlisted to join the group, resulting in the Sunrise and Supernatural EPs, acclaimed by PopMatters for possessing “an undeniable sense of adventure.”

Produced by Lyons at The Space Station in Athens, Change is as bold as anything in Wilson’s ground-breaking four decade canon, melding future pop, disco drama, American standards, electronica, and more into her own distinctive creative vision. New songs like “Mystic” and the transformative title track are intricate and inventive, lush and luminous with strings, synthesizers, harmonies, and Wilson’s utterly distinct vocal magic. Further highlights include a pair of unexpected covers: New Colony Six’s soft rock classic, “Things I’d Like to Say,” and “Brother.”

With Change, Cindy Wilson has once again remade pop in her own innovative, irresistible image. Excited and energized by the experience, the iconic artist is already looking forward to her next evolution.
