Ambient pop musician Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith has announced the followup to last year's Ears (which also follows a collaborative album with Suzanne Ciani). The new album is called The Kid and it's due out on October 6 via Western Vinyl. The lead single is "An Intention," which really lets Kaitlyn's vocal abilities shine. It may be a minimal, ambient song but it's also a true pop song, and the mix is quite successful. Listen below.

Kaitlyn also announced a tour, including a Brooklyn show on November 2 at Good Room. Tickets go on sale Thursday (7/13) at 10 AM.

The tour's Vancouver stop is with Zola Jesus, who also released a new song today. All dates are listed below.
