Baby Queen Announces Debut Album “Quarter Life Crisis”, Shares New Song “All The Things”
London-based South African singer-songwriter Arabella Latham, aka Baby Queen has announced her debut album “Quarter Life Crisis” will be released on October 6, 2023 via Polydor Records.
The album comprises 12-track (deluxe edition 21-track), produced by long-time Baby Queen collaborator King Ed.
Baby Queen said of the album, “This album tells the story of my journey through my early 20s - leaving my childhood and my adolescence behind but never really losing my childlike wonder and never quite growing up. The songs are all facets of what early adulthood has been like for me while discovering new parts of myself, my sexuality, my past and my place in this world.”
She continued, “It has been lonely, chaotic, beautiful, devastating and inspiring and I think these songs reflect that, creating a space in which innocence and experience can live side by side as two conflicting entities. I'm not sure anybody ever truly feels like they have it all figured out - I certainly don't, but it has been the greatest joy of my life to be able to share my experiences with those willing to listen to my stories.”
- She added, “I really want this album to leave people feeling hopeful, because there is so much beauty to live through and look forward to and it truly is magical and extraordinary to be alive and to have the very short opportunity to experience every emotion imaginable.”
From the album, she unveiled a new song “All The Things” on August 11, 2023.
The track was written by Arabella Latham and Edward James Carlile. Produced by King Ed.
She said of the song, “'All The Things' draws inspiration from the relationship between two of the main characters in Heartstopper called Tao and Elle, but also encapsulates the emotions I was feeling very strongly at the time of writing it, so it's a very personal song to me. It's about being so enamoured with a person that the things that once brought you happiness don't hit or affect you in quite the same way because all the things you used to want to do, you now want to do with that person by your side.”
