Melanie Martinez releases K-12, the hugely anticipated new album with an accompanying full-length film, now available on all streaming services.

K-12 marks Martinez’s long-anticipated follow-up to her 2015 debut album, CRY BABY. Produced by Michael Keenan with the exception of one song produced by Kinetics & One Love, the album serves as a soundtrack companion to an eerily enchanting new musical film, written, directed, and starring Martinez. K-12 is streaming now at DSPs as well as Melanie Martinez’s official YouTube channel. The film is also available on iTunes, Amazon, Amazon Prime and Google Play.

K-12 had its official world premiere with at Hollywood’s famed Arclight Cinerama Dome and New York City’s AMC Empire 25 in Times Square, with both premieres officially sold out within 24 hours of their announcement. Martinez made a spectacular entrance on both coasts, arriving at the premiere in the distinctive pink school bus prominently featured in the film.

Earlier this month K-12 was shown in cinemas as a one-night-only global event with over 400 screenings around the world.

K-12 screened in over 32 countries internationally, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, New Zealand, Ireland, and Argentina, to name but a few.

Visual expression has always been incredibly important to Melanie who has said she can’t finish a song unless she can see a full music video ahead. In 2014, Martinez posted the official music video for “Dollhouse,” off her debut album “Cry Baby.” She then went on to release 12 more music videos – all but one self-directed – for the tracks on the album between 2014-2017 that have collectively amassed over 1 billion views.

Martinez introduced K-12 to the world with an eagerly awaited performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, on, September 16th.

Widely applauded for her remarkably creative live performances, Martinez will celebrate

K-12 by presenting a unique theatrical production on a major world tour. “The K-12 Tour” gets underway October 13th in Washington, D.C. and then travels North America through late November; European dates are said to follow, beginning December 2nd in Dublin, then continuing through mid-December.
