LA-based singer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter Kadhja Bonet will release her sophomore record Childqueen on June 8th on Fat Possum. The album is the follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2016 debut album The Visitor. Premiering via NPR’s Songs We Love, the gentle first single Mother Maybe is a horn-laden waltz, featuring Bonet’s soulful, gorgeous vocals backed by hypnotic harmonies.
Recorded over a two year period in studios scattered throughout the globe (Amsterdam, Barcelona, Paris, London, Copenhagen, Berlin and Brussels – Childqueen was written, produced and mixed by Bonet herself, who even does her own album artwork.
Despite its soft tones, despite its listenability, Childqueen challenges us as much as Kadhja’s self-description: “I don’t like calling myself an artist. I don’t like calling myself a singer— or even a musician.”
