Los Angeles-based indie songstress Kina Grannis celebrated Valentine’s Day weekend by delivering her fans a trifecta of details surrounding her sophomore release.   Driving fans to her Instagram feed through a week’s worth of subtle teasers, Friday’s announcement included an album title, album artwork and a release date.   Elements — produced and recorded by Matt Hales (aka Aqualung) — will be released May 6th, 2014 via Kina Grannis Records and distributed through The Orchard.
Elements follows Kina’s breakout 2011 debut Stairwells and showcases a decidedly more mature sound.   Aided by Hales, whose recent credits include work with Lianne La Havas, Alex Clare and Paloma Faith, Kina’s newest songs are filled with layered vocals and harmonies and lush, intricate soundscapes, while documenting a period of growth and change in her personal life, complete with an honesty and a vulnerability she’s excited to share with her fans.
