Tori Kelly has been busy working on new music during the COVID-19 pandemic, and will release Solitude, a five-song EP recorded at home during quarantine, on Aug. 14. Kelly revealed the track listing today and shared one of its five songs – her poignant version of Drake’s “Time Flies.”
Kelly penned three of the EP’s five tracks at home. After recording acoustic demos, she worked remotely with producers Monro, Spencer Stewart and Stint to complete “Value” and “Don’t Take Me Home.” On the funky, exuberant “Unbothered” she offers a much-needed dose of hope, looking to the good times ahead. The EP wraps with “Glad,” a personal, soulful ballad that Kelly penned for her husband, and produced and recorded herself.
“I’ve never been more thankful for my home studio than I have during this season of being quarantined,” says Tori Kelly. “In some ways, it felt like I was going back to my roots, when I would be in my room, making songs and posting covers on YouTube. A lot of change has happened since my last album, so it felt great to just freely write what was on my heart and be inspired by different stories. I had so much fun creating this EP and I’m excited to share this new chapter of my music.”
With her 2020 European tour cut short due to COVID-19, Kelly began collaborating with other artists online via her “QuaranTEA with Tori” series and working on new music.
