Multiple GRAMMY® Award-nominated recording artist Tayla Parx releases A Blue State, a powerful cover compilation mini-project reflecting her mood and political nuance. Parx pays homage to KirkFranklin’s “I Smile,” Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and Lauryn Hill’s “Everything is Everything” in the incredible collection which precedes her eagerly anticipated new album, COPING MECHANISMS, due to arrive 11/20. A Blue State is available now via Tayla Made/Atlantic at all DSPs and streaming services HERE.
“Before my album, I wanted to surprise you guys with a collection of songs that I’ve not only cried to but been inspired by,” notes Tayla Parx in an Instagram post about A Blue State. “They’ve brought me an abundance of light in such a dark time. I hope to bring that same light to the people I care most about, my Taylatots. This one’s for you.”
A Blue State was heralded this spring by the acclaimed single, “Dance Alone,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services. Hailed by Insider as one of “the 18 best LGBQ love songs of all time,” the disco-infused track proved a sensation upon arrival, earning over 1.2 million Spotify streams (including placement on Michelle Obama’s #BlackGirlMagic playlist) amidst widespread critical applause from the likes of Variety, which declared, “‘Dance Alone’ has perhaps the defining chorus of 2020.” “Dance Alone” is joined by a joyously energetic official video, filmed at Parx’s home in Los Angeles and streaming now via YouTube HERE.
