GRAMMY® Award-nominated, multi-platinum certified singer-songwriter GAYLE bring us ‘a study of the human experience volume two and a half’ EP via Atlantic Records/Arthouse Records
a study of the human experience volume two and a half includes the long clamored for the orchestral rendition of “kiddie pool (strings)” following its debut earlier this year via an official visualizer.
GAYLE says: “i had no idea what i was doing when i put out a study of the human experience volume one,” “i had little to no tour experience and i was just starting to get comfortable in my writing and in my sound. through this past year i’ve had so many new experiences that made me start to figure out what i really want out of life and what i really wanted to do with my music. a study of the human experience volume two and a half is me sitting with my music and thinking about what i would change about these songs now that i have more experiences and inspirations. also i got bored and wanted to do it 🙂”
The 18-year-old, Nashville-based artist will join Taylor Swift as special guest for 15 shows on her blockbuster “The Eras Tour,” with dates set to begin March 17, 2023 at Glendale, AZ’s State Farm Stadium and then continue through the US leg’s finale at Inglewood, CA’s So Fi Stadium on August 9, 2023.
GAYLE’s brilliant year has already seen such highlights as the release of her critically acclaimed sophomore EP, a study of the human experience volume two. The introspective EP includes “fmk (with blackbear),” which earned over 1 million streams in the first weekend following its release, recently debuted at #36 on Top 40 radio outlets nationwide, and is currently making its way up the chart. The playfully chaotic duet – which sees GAYLE joining forces with multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and producer blackbear – arrived alongside a delightfully homicidal animated video, directed by award-winning Belgian director Chris Ullens (Rex Orange County, Poppy).
GAYLE was also recently acknowledged by her hometown’s Nashville Songwriter Awards, which named “abcdefu” in its annual “10 Songs I Wish I’d Written” list.
GAYLE’s triumphant 2022 kicked off with the release of her breakthrough debut EP, a study of the human experience volume one. The EP includes the now 3x RIAA platinum-certified breakthrough hit “abcdefu.” Declared “the breakout song of 2022” by NYLON and a “gloriously caustic grunge-pop smash” by the Los Angeles Times, “abcdefu” proved a landmark debut for GAYLE, holding #1 on the Billboard Global 200 for nine consecutive weeks while peaking at #3 on the Billboard “Hot 100” in the US after three consecutive weeks atop Top 40 radio charts nationwide. “abcdefu” has since been named among the “Best Songs of 2022 So Far” by Billboard, Rolling Stone, and UPROXX.
