New York-based songwriter Katy Kirby has announced her second album Blue Raspberry to be released on January 26, 2024.

Her first for ANTI- Records, Blue Raspberry dives headlong into the artifice of newfound intimacy: the glitter smeared across eyelid creases, the smiles switched on with an electric buzz, the synthetic rose scent all over someone who’s made herself smell nice just for you. An exegesis of Kirby’s first queer relationship, Blue Raspberry traces the crescendo and collapse of new love, savouring each gleaming shard of rock candy and broken glass along the way.

With today’s announcement, Kirby has shared the song and video for “Table.” Directed by Lane Rodges, the clip features Katy in puritanical garb as she sizes up a table that represents the limitations she experienced being raised as a homeschooled evangelical Christian. Watch the clip below, followed by her upcoming tour dates.
