Emilie Kahn, formerly known as Emilie & Ogden is thrilled to announce her sophomore full-length album, Outro ; a remorseful exit from youth, available everywhere February 22nd via Secret City Records. Kahn also shares the first round of dates for her tour supporting the release, which you can find the full list below.
Three years after releasing her first album 10 000, Kahn is no longer the same songwriter. She’s dropped the moniker and with it any sense of impersonation; what’s left is Emilie as herself, a keen writer determined to bend pop to her will. Outro, produced in collaboration with Warren C. Spicer of Plants and Animals, shows a craftswoman come into her own. The songs have become something else, something older. Outro is a pained look back at the past as Kahn pores over every misplaced feeling and bad call. Teeming with adulthood’s melancholy, Kahn offers indie pop crafted with a miniaturist hand toward intimacy, while still reaching for the grandiosity of the genre’s icons. This is a record that stings as much as it soothes, and never misses a chance to swing for the fences as she glances around one last time before heading off to some future island.
