THE COUNTRY-LATIN DUO ANNOUNCED AN ENTIRELY SPANISH VERSION OF THE EP, LADO B, ARRIVING SEPT. 30
Sony Music Nashville buzzworthy duo Kat & Alex released Side A of their self-titled EP today. Listen here.
Growing up, Kat & Alex recalled seeing ‘Lado A’ and ‘Lado B’ (translation: ‘Side A’ and ‘Side B’) on their parents’ records. The duo has made it their mission to share music that reaches and celebrates a diverse and expansive audience including Spanish speakers like themselves, so with their debut EP, they decided to release an entirely Spanish version as well. In celebration of the kickoff of Hispanic Heritage Month, the couple announced that they’ll be releasing Lado B on September 30. Pre-order/add/save here.
“Sonically, the project is a melting pot…introducing two different worlds,” Kat & Alex said. “You’ll hear country, which is the root of it, as well as some rock, soul and pop. The common theme of the music though is love, which is purposeful because our relationship is full of love and it’s the core of everything we do.”
“Our mission is to show that there’s an audience of Spanish speakers that love country music. It’s not just for one group of people, it can be shared and created by anyone. If you love it, you can make it,” Kat & Alex said.
Kat & Alex co-wrote every track on the project aside from “Marry You,” which was written by labelmate Maren Morris along with Busbee. “When we heard this song, we felt like this it told our story, which was really cool because it was Maren’s song to her husband, Ryan Hurd. We reimagined it as a duet and added a bit of Latin drums to make it our own.”
Recently singled out as an Emerging Latin Artist to Discover by Billboard and named a CMT Listen Up artist for 2022, Kat & Alex are “well on their way to stardom” (People Magazine) and continue to establish themselves as Nashville’s most compelling outliers.
