Just over a week ago, Platt released the first two tracks off the eagerly awaited album – “Bad Habit” and “Ease My Mind” – available now via all digital music retailers and streaming services. “Bad Habit” also came accompanied by an incredibly moving official music video, directed by Nick Lieberman and streaming now HERE. The tracks and video were met with acclaim from fans and critics alike, with the Los Angeles Times declaring “‘Bad Habit’ and ‘Ease My Mind’ showcase [Platt’s] signature vibrato and guttural vulnerability.”
The album announcement and track release were heralded by exclusive performances from Platt at New York’s Bowery Hotel and LA’s The Nice Guy, as well as a three-night immersive gallery installation for fans in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, marked by surprise performances each night from Platt himself. Later this month, Platt will stop by “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” for the television debut performance of “Bad Habit” on Thursday, February 21st.
