New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Noah Kahan gifts his fans with a new song "Cynic" from his debut album Busyhead out this Friday, June 14th.
Noah performed the track live for the very first time last night on Late Night with Seth Meyers —watch the performance HERE!
"Cynic" once again sees Noah Kahan
evolve as a songwriter and a musician. His sharp and self-aware lyrical sensibility takes the spotlight on the confessional chorus, "I'm living with it. Oh, I'm a cynic. Give me the open mind I had before." In celebration of his album release, Noah will also be performing "Cynic" this Thursday, June 13th on Today Show — be sure to tune in!
This fall, Noah will be heading out on The Busyhead Tour across North America, returning to headline larger venues coming off of a 2018 sold out tour. The tour kicks off at Granada Theater in Dallas on September
19th and includes dates in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Nashville, San Francisco and more. See the full list of dates below.
In two short years, music quite literally carried 22-year-old singer, songwriter and artist Noah Kahan
around the world — a long way from his native Strafford, VT (pop. 1,045) and the 133-acre tree farm where he resides. On the trip, the alternative troubadour notched an international hit in the form of "Hurt Somebody," which racked up over 200 million global streams to date and went triple platinum in Australia and gold in Canada, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland and New Zealand.
The song also peaked at #1 on the Top 40 radio charts in Australia for three weeks, making it the third most played song on the Australian airwaves in all of 2018 where Noah has become one of the most buzzworthy new acts. Meanwhile, his singles "Young Blood
" and "False Confidence" also racked up millions of streams, as he sold out headline tours in North America, Europe, and the U.K. and hit the road with artists like James
Ezra, Leon Bridges
and Dean Lewis.
Not to mention, he has garnered critical acclaim from Billboard, Stereogum, NYLON, Clash, Idolator, and more. In the midst of this whirlwind, Noah assembled his upcoming full-length debut album, Busyhead.
The first single "Mess" illuminates his marked growth as a songwriter and storyteller by way of its biting lyrics and undeniable sing-a-long, underscoring a heartwarming and often hilarious portrait of hometown longing. Busyhead is set for release on June 14th.
