Kelly Lee Owens is back with her second solo album, titled Inner Song and out May 1 via Smalltown Supersound. (Her terrific self-titled debut came out in 2017.) The record is the result of ""the hardest three years of my life," Kelly says. "My creative life and everything I'd worked for up to that point was deeply impacted. I wasn't sure if I could make anything anymore, and it took quite a lot of courage to get to a point where I could create again." The record features The Velvet Underground's John Cale and a cover of Radiohead's "Arpeggi."

The first single is a banger in Owens' ethereal style called "Melt!" "I wanted to create something that sounded hard but with organic samples," she says. "I felt those were great representations of what's happening in the world, that every moment you're breathing and sleeping, this is taking place.” Watch the video below.
