Today, 2x Grammy Award-winner and multi-platinum artist Tori Kelly has announced that she will be releasing her new solo studio album, TORI, on April 5th via Epic Records. Pre-orders can be found here.

The album announcement comes alongside the release of a brand new single, “high water,” which can be found below.

The song is an acoustic-driven resilient call to action, fusing Kelly’s always impressive vocals blended with a sonic atmosphere that is brimming with hope for the future.

“Now my hope is that [“high water”] will uplift others in whatever they might be going through and encourage them to keep going,” Kelly says on the new single.

TORI., Kelly’s fifth studio album and first in partnership with Epic Records, represents the full picture of a woman coming into her own. It is something the artist first let fans in on with her acclaimed 7-track EP tori in 2023. That project featured a wide range of musical influences and personal inspirations, weaving together arresting grooves, unrelenting movement, and her love of Y2K-era R&B, as showcased in stand-outs like “missin u” and “cut.” On TORI., she expands on that release’s promise in a way that warrants its all-caps, full-statement title, bringing together sounds from the late ’90s and early ’00s in creative, exciting ways that put perpetual motion at the forefront—with the throughline being Kelly’s strong, versatile voice. It is truly a full 360 vision of Tori Kelly.

“I have been working on my next album for the last few years, exploring new sounds & expressing so many different sides of myself. I thought I had covered it all until I had a health scare in July of last year that reminded me just how fragile life can be.”Kelly says. “‘high water’ is about simply holding on and believing that there will be light at the end of the tunnel.”
