TASH SULTANA Announces Support Acts For North American Tour; New Release Date For ‘Sugar’ EP Now Out August 18

Article Contributed by SRO | Published on Wednesday, July 19, 2023

SUGAR, the upcoming EP from multi-instrumentalist, producer, singer-songwriter, engineer, and entrepreneur TASH SULTANA, has a new release date, of August 18. Due out via their own label, Lonely Lands Records, it’s available for pre-order now here.

The new release date comes as TASH prepares to launch their 32-city headlining North American tour. The shows follow summer performances in Europe and kick off August 22 in San Diego before wrapping October 1 in Memphis and include cities they have never performed in before as well as major festivals appearances. See below for full list of dates and support acts  Chiiild, Go-Jo, Bailen.

In advance of the EP, TASH recently released (July 5) a new track, "Bitter Lovers.” The song--which follows two previous singles, “James Dean” and “New York”--takes a different turn with a collaboration featuring American soul R&B artist BJ The Chicago Kid. The song showcases their combined exceptional chemistry and creative synergy. The journey began when BJ shared a demo with Tash during their tour in September 2022.

SUGAR was co-engineered, produced, composed and arranged by TASH who played every single instrument on the EP. TASH--who withheld releasing any new projects for over two years--came into the EP with a refreshing perspective, described as a combination of past, present and future workings. The new release embodies their commitment to innovation and artistic exploration. Fans will hear this as a teaser of an “album cut in half.”

TASH reveals that the EP’s theme serves as a reflection piece, encapsulating their life from 2021 to 2023. It is a captivating storytelling experience incorporating cryptic wording and musical style, leaving the true message open to interpretation. TASH ensures that no one will ever fully discover the true meaning of the message.

TASH wrote the songs for the SUGAR in the comfort of their own home, studio, and mind, with their notebook serving as a creative companion throughout the journey. This intimate environment allowed TASH to explore their musical vision and fully bring it to life.
