Tones and I has announced the details of her debut album.

The record is titled Welcome to the Madhouse, and is due out July 16. It follows the Australian artist’s 2019 EP The Kids Are Coming, which features her breakout hit “Dance Monkey.”

“This album for me is very up and down and reflects the forever changing emotions in me,” Tones explains. “There are songs on the album that were written before ‘Dance Monkey,’ about not knowing if busking was right for me. There are songs about my good friend T passing away and not wanting to deal with those emotions. The ups and downs of life in lock down and the mental challenges/struggles.”

“Some songs make me laugh and some make me cry but there is no running theme or vibe to the album,” she adds. “The songs are unique to how I was feeling the day I wrote them.”

Welcome to the Madhouse features the previously released songs “Fly Away” and “Won’t Sleep,” along with a just-released new track called “Cloudy Day,” which is available now for digital download.

Here’s the Welcome to the Madhouse track list:
