Song is first official single from Portals

Melanie Martinez has shared “Void,” the first official single from her highly-anticipated forthcoming album, Portals, due March 31st via Atlantic Records. The single – an alt-pop earworm written and produced by Martinez herself – follows the release of first track “Death,” which has already earned her biggest first week streams and marks her first week one Billboard Hot 100 debut of any original release to date.

The cinematic “Death” music video, directed, conceived, and costume designed by Melanie Martinez herself, arrived to a YouTube premiere with almost 80,000 fans tuned in. The video is still currently trending at No. 1 on YouTube for music, and has already earned over six million official video views in just one weekend after release. The song was first teased with a series of otherworldly clips revealing the rebirth of fan-favorite character “Cry Baby,” quickly sparking a frenzy of theories from fans and garnering over 115 million views across socials. “Death” is the 13-track Portals album opener and “Void” follows as the lead single.

Hugely anticipated festival appearances at Lollapalooza Argentina on March 18th, Lollapalooza Chile on March 19th, and Bogota, Columbia’s Estéreo Picnic on March 23rd saw Melanie Martinez performing as the new creature and debuting upcoming music for the very first time. Martinez will also perform at Lollapalooza Brazil on March 25, with a wide-ranging international live schedule to be announced soon.

Portals marks the 27-year-old New York City-born singer-songwriter-filmmaker’s first full-length release in nearly four years following her two billion-streaming, RIAA Gold-certified second album, K-12, which proved a sensation upon its September 2019 release, entering the Billboard 200 at No. 3 – Martinez’s highest chart placement thus far – with further debuts at No. 1 on the alternative album chart, and No. 1 on the soundtrack album chart. K-12 also serves as a soundtrack companion to an eerily enchanting musical film, written, directed, and starring Martinez, now with over 106 million views to date via YouTube alone. K-12 was the sixth highest grossing film in the US on the day of its September 3, 2019 theatrical release, with one-night-only screenings in over 425 cinemas in 32 countries.
