“Cry,” the new song from rising singer/songwriter Adam Melchor, is premiering now; listen to/share it HERE and watch/share the lyric video HERE. Co-written by Melchor, Nick Long (The Chainsmokers, Avril Lavigne), Michael Pollock (Lizzo, John Legend) and Ian Fitchuk (Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris), “Cry” is the latest song from Melchor’s forthcoming debut album, Here Goes Nothing!, set for release October 21 via Warner Records.

Of the track, Melchor recalls, “Cry is a song about not wanting to cry in front of someone you love and not exactly knowing why. Crying always feels like a sign of weakness even if it’s a sign of truth, and we’re taught from a young age that we shouldn’t do it. This song is about navigating those feelings and asking myself why I’m not fully open with myself or someone else.”

Prior to embarking on an extensive headline tour starting January 2023, Melchor will be hitting the road with Noah Kahan on his sold-out fall tour. The run of dates includes performances at New York’s Pier 17, Los Angeles’ The Wiltern, Chicago’s Riviera Theatre, Philadelphia’s The Fillmore and more. Full tour routing can be found below.
Co-produced by Melchor and Henry Kwapis (Benny Blanco, Dijon), Here Goes Nothing! features additional contributions from Charlie Puth, Lennon Stella, Emily Warren and Andrew Sarlo. Here Goes Nothing! also features Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes) on the track “Let Me Know When.”

The album’s lead single “Turnham Green” has already been the subject of early praise; V Magazine calls it “a classic pop-folk song, with soft melodies and ethereal acoustic guitar riffs. The melancholy song highlights the beauty that can come from pain, as Melchor hears somebody’s reasoning for hurting him,” while Ones To Watch adds, “‘Turnham Green’ is a sobering moment of empathy.” Most recently, Consequence premiered Melchor’s track “I’m Ready,” proclaiming, “The dreamy indie-folk tune doubles down on Melchor’s knack for warm harmonies and frames him as wholeheartedly in love.” Watch/share a live performance of “I’m Ready,” performed alongside Ashe, HERE.

Melchor moved to Los Angeles in 2018 where he had sessions with everyone from Charlie Puth to The Chainsmokers, which subsequently led to tour dates alongside Mt. Joy, Dodie and Ashe, over 50 million streams to date and extensive critical praise. In 2020, Melchor launched Melchor’s Lullaby Hotline, sending out 40 original songs to over 10,000 fans. In conjunction, Melchor released a mixtape featuring his favorite tracks entitled Melchor Lullaby Hotline, Vol. 1, marking his first release on Warner Records.

Earlier this year Melchor performed with Post Malone on “Saturday Night Live,” where he sang backing vocals, and recently completed a 30-date headlining tour across the country. Melchor’s songwriting accolades include co-writes on Ashe’s “Taylor,” The Chainsmokers’ “In Too Deep,” Alexander 23’s “Loving You Gets Hard” and Allison Ponthier’s “Faking My Own Death.” He has also collaborated with Briston Maroney, Lennon Stella, ELIO, Madeline The Person and more.
