The Sylvee - Madison, WI

General Onsale begins Friday, Jan 26th at 10am here.

Bold pop hooks, sex positivity, honest songwriting, and a heavy dose of glitter make up the world of Chappell Roan, the next multi-faceted force in pop music.

The LP touches every genre from the euphoric dance-pop of “My Kink Is Karma,” introspective acoustic guitar ballads like “Kaleidoscope,” the country-pop “Red Wine Supernova,” and punky new wave inflections on “Hot to Go.” With the full-length, Chappell wanted to “prove that women are multi-dimensional,” she explains. “It’s important for me to show that I’m not just some sexy pop star, I wallow in pain just as much as the next gir
