Kim Petras announces debut album

Feed the Beast is due June 23rd

Grammy-winning international pop sensation and critically acclaimed songwriter Kim Petras has announced the release of her highly anticipated debut album Feed The Beast, out June 23rd via Republic Records/Amigo Records.

This morning (Mon, May 15th) it was also revealed on Today that Petras is gracing the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, one of the most recognizable and influential symbols of pop culture that champions body confidence and self-expression and continues to spark discussion about what defines beauty on a global scale. To mark this iconic moment, Petras will be performing at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood in Hollywood, FL on Friday, May 19th at 8 pm, presented by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit.

Petras recently released her buzzy single “Alone” featuring diamond-selling hip hop icon Nicki Minaj, already racking up millions of streams.

Next up, Petras will play Governor’s Ball on June 9th in New York City, and on June 23rd, she will be celebrating the release of her album Feed The Beast on NBC’s Today, performing live on the Today Plaza as part of the Citi Concert Series.

After recently sitting front row at the Chanel Cruise 2023/2024 Show and attending the Met Gala as a guest of Marc Jacobs to pay homage to Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel era, Petras is continuing a milestone year that began with her and Sam Smith’s history-making Grammy win for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their massive pop hit “Unholy”– which just surpassed one billion streams and was performed by Petras and Smith on the Grammy Awards, Saturday Night Live, and the BRIT Awards. Petras also performed her single “Brrr” on Late Night With Seth Meyers where she chatted with Seth before being honored with the Chartbreaker Award at Billboard’s Women In Music event.

This year, Petras is slated to perform at festivals around the world, including Osheaga in Montreal, Life is Beautiful in Las Vegas, and The Town in São Paulo, Brazil.
