KIM PETRAS RELEASES RACY NEW SINGLE ‘DO ME’ AHEAD OF “BROKEN TOUR”
Kim Petras has released her newest single ‘Do Me’ (listen). The bedroom banger hears Kim unapologetically take control of her sexuality, pairing 80s power synths and her signature lung-busting choruses with a slick, urban flow. ‘Do Me’ is the sixth offering from Kim’s new era, which has seen her release a new single every week.
Kim upsized her headline show to London’s Heaven (27 August) after swiftly selling out tickets during pre-sale. This will be Kim’s biggest UK gig to date, having already opened for Troye Sivan and Rita Ora in concert internationally. The fever-pitch demand has also seen Kim upgrade to bigger venues and sell-out her Broken Tour across the United States and Europe. While in the UK, Kim will also be playing Leeds Festival (23 August), Manchester Pride (24 August), and Reading Festival (25 August). For tickets, visit kimpetras.com.
Speaking ahead of her first headline tour, which starts in two weeks, Kim told Interview Magazine: “It has been a long journey to getting to my first tour, and selling it out immediately was really sick. It’s the first time I really get to do what I want. I get to actually dress up my stage, make it what I want to make it. It’s really cool. I’m doing a bunch of intros and interludes, building a legit show. I want it to be perfect.”
The Broken Tour will feature all of Kim’s best loved singles – including ‘Heart to Break’, ‘I Don’t Want It At All’, ‘1,2,3 Dayz Up’ (feat. SOPHIE) – as well as the new singles from her forthcoming debut album.
‘Broken’ (listen), the first single from this era, unveiled a more grounded, personal sound for Kim. It has racked up over 4 million combined streams to date, making more than 30 of Spotify’s global New Music Friday playlists and 45 of Apple Music’s Best of The Week playlists.
“‘Broken’ does sound and feel like a significant departure from everything in her catalogue thus far. A bit darker and more grounded, but still cathartic in its execution” – The FADER
“With her classic powerhouse vocals and electro pop backing, it’s showing off her vulnerable side while simultaneously giving a big ‘fuck you’ to past lovers as she fires piercing lyrics over the nocturnal backing. A pop queen in the making” – Wonderland
Other singles from this critically-lauded new era include: the party anthem ‘Got My Number’ (listen), the hedonistic ‘Blow It All’ (listen), Kylie-inspired disco pop banger ‘Sweet Spot’ (listen) and the emotional ‘All I Do Is Cry’ (listen).
Kim kicked off this year with a bang, headlining Sydney Mardi Gras and sold out her first headline shows in New York City, Los Angeles, Sydney, and Melbourne. While in Australia, Kim was also invited by Rita Ora to open on her Phoenix World Tour.
Since her debut with the #1 Spotify Global Viral 50 bop ‘I Don’t Want It At All’, Kim has earned true cult status amongst pop music purists, racking up over 125 million global streams. She broke into US Top 40 Radio with her infectious hit ‘Heart to Break’, and opened for Troye Sivan’s The Bloom Tour in North America.
