Chloe Lilac debuts new single “High School” + mxmtoon tour starts today
A melancholic ode to endings and new beginnings, “High School” is the 2nd single to be released from Chloe’s forthcoming sophomore EP. In an exclusive on “High School,” Chloe told Billboard, “The song is all about the relief of high school being over. I had a really tough time in high school so when it was done I was so so so happy about it.” Further discussing the song’s official video, Chloe adds, “Jasper Soloff (the director) and I wanted to depict the stereotypes that define the typical high school experience. We captured scenes of me and my friends on our phones, a house party scene, and the excitement of a new high school sweetheart — all with a raw, Gen Z spin.”
“High School” follows previous single “Special,” the first to see a release from Chloe’s upcoming EP. “Special” was added to Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ playlist and saw critical love from outlets such as Refinery29, who called the track “a shot of some catchy nostalgia.” Watch the “Special” official video here.
Today also marks the beginning of Chloe Lilac’s support tour with mxmtoon, which kicks off in Toronto tonight. The tour comes on the heels of Chloe’s first Los Angeles headline for Neon Gold’s renowned “Popshop” showcase last month. Chloe documented her time in L.A. and her trip home to NYC in an exclusive photo diary feature with Flaunt.
Chloe has also joined other rising artists on tour including Charlotte Lawrence, Sasha Sloan, and Rejjie Snow. She performed at SXSW 2019 and later joined Tessa Violet on her summer 2019 tour.
