Katie Von Schleicher announces a brand new 7″ entitled “Glad To Be Here” / “Party Dawn”, for release on 4th May 2018 via Full Time Hobby. The 7″ is the first material the Brooklyn-based songwriter has shared since her critically acclaimed debut album, Shitty Hits, last year. Katie said the following about the tracks:

“On a break from touring this winter I went alone to Maryland, where I am originally from, and made these two songs, taking the gear I’ve very happily accrued since making my album Shitty Hits. I built a fire, I set up my gold drum kit, I saw a ton of stars and felt smushed by silence, and it was lonely, so I made these songs. “Glad to Be Here” is where I find myself right now. “Party Dawn” is tied to Maryland, to my friend and our adolescence. Both are a bridge toward the subject matter of my next record. Back in New York, my collaborator Adam Brisbin (Sam Evian, Jolie Holland, Buck Meek) contributed guitar and bass, and Julian Fader (Ava Luna, Frankie Cosmos, Nadine, Palehound) mixed it.”

Following a premiere with Loud & Quiet (read here), “Glad To Be Here” is available to stream and share HERE.

The 7″ is available to pre-order HERE.

Shitty Hits was Von Schleicher’s self-produced and co-engineered debut full-length album, confronting feelings of isolation and powerlessness. She was not tackling grandiosity, but mediocrity and the struggle of being deeply flawed and unmistakably human. Through a uniquley warped and uncompromising sound, Shitty Hits channeled the bright, sunny radio burners of the 1970’s – songs you drive to, carefree, and songs you can cry to.
