“You Get Me (A Final Word)” first premiered earlier this week on The Zane Lowe Show on Apple Music, where Chiiild is featured as the New Music Daily cover. This is the newest track from Chiiild’s forthcoming album Better Luck in the Next Life, which was announced last month – watch the album trailer HERE. The contemplative track creates a dreamily pensive soundscape that offers further insight into the world Chiiild has created for this project.
About the track, Chiiild shares "I was just trying to have a conversation with you. Simply and honestly. No fluff, just insight, in hopes that you get me."
Chiiild’s “Better Luck in the Next Life Tour” will kick off this spring on March 2, 2023, in Santa Ana, CA and will stop in major cities including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and many more – the full list of dates can be found below. Tickets are on sale now – for more information, please visit https://chiiild.com/.
Chiiild previously released “Bon Voyage,” the first single from Better Luck in the Next Life that offered a first glimpse into the album, which serves as an in-depth exploration of creative freedom, personal equilibrium, and a return home. The track’s stripped-down instrumental and deep-rooted reverb places Chiiild’s rich vocals and introspective lyrics in the spotlight, taking listeners on a journey through his world.
Better Luck In The Next Life will be the follow up project to Chiiild’s 2021 debut album Hope for Sale, which upon release was met with critical acclaim from NPR, Complex, NYLON, and more and has amassed over 58 million streams to date. The album was nominated for Alternative Album of the Year at the 2022 JUNO Awards, and Chiiild was also named one of VEVO’s 2022 DSCVR Artists to Watch. Chiiild delivered a soulful medley of two of his most well-known songs from this album, “Pirouette” and “Sleepwalking” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! – watch the performance HERE. Prior to Hope for Sale, Chiiild released his debut EP Synthetic Soul in early 2020.
Earlier this year, Chiiild embarked on Leon Bridges’ “The Boundless Tour” for select dates. Previously, Chiiild sold out his debut headline tour in the US, The Apocalyptic Optimistic Tour, which featured festival performances at Lollapalooza, Life Is Beautiful, and Governor’s Ball.

Chiiild by Eddie Mandell
Multi-talented artist Chiiild crafts beautiful and thought-provoking hymns that transcend genre, while still retaining the integrity of Soul, Jazz, and R&B. As an artist influenced by everyone from Pink Floyd to Marvin Gaye, Chiiild has a knack for melding sounds and coupling them with songwriting that is rooted in both storytelling and social commentary. In early 2020, Chiiild released his debut EP Synthetic Soul. He followed with his debut album Hope For Sale in 2021, which earned a Hi-Fidelity Award at the Prism Prize and a Juno Award nomination for Alternative Album of the Year. His upcoming 2023 release Better Luck Next Life is a culmination of Chiiild’s influences and experiences, mixed with a graduated level of experimentation. At the heart of it, Better Luck Next Life matches passion with energy from an artist who isn’t afraid to take risks in his sound and evolve with every lyric and note.
