Tones And I announces upcoming debut album “Welcome To The Madhouse”

Tones and I has announced her debut album Welcome to the Madhouse will arrive on July 16th. Tones and I said in a statement: “This album for me is very up and down and reflects the forever changing emotions in me. There are songs on the album that were written before ‘Dance Monkey,’ about not knowing if busking was right for me. There are songs about my good friend T passing away and not wanting to deal with those emotions. The ups and downs of life in lockdown and the mental challenges/struggles. Some songs make me laugh and some make me cry but there is no running theme or vibe to the album — the songs are unique to how I was feeling the day I wrote them.”   The Australian singer’s first official LP follows hit singles including “Dance Monkey” and “Fly Away,” with the latter appearing on the upcoming album.
