09 SEPTEMBER 2020 (TORONTO, ON) — Today, FLETCHER shares her highly awaited new EP THE S(EX) TAPES — a collection of boldly realized pop songs about finding your forever person before you find yourself and needing to explore the parts of you that remain unknown as a result.

Also today, FLETCHER premieres the video for “Shh… Don’t Say It.” The video for the hypnotic new single is available HERE.

Also Executive produced by her frequent collaborator Malay (Lorde, Frank Ocean), THE S(EX) TAPES finds FLETCHER working with her “babe gang” of A-list female songwriters like Caroline Ailin and Emily Warren (Dua Lipa), Mozella (Miley Cyrus, Rihanna), Jennifer Decilveo (Melanie Martinez) and more. In creating the EP’s magnetic and moody tracks, FLETCHER intimately documented her personal journey over the last few years, including the tension between being in love and learning to stand on her own for the first time.
“It’s pretty risqué but totally honest and vulnerable,” FLETCHER recently told Flaunt Magazine. “The shit we go through in life isn’t black-and-white, things aren’t perfect. I don’t have my shit figured out at all. I’m fucking emotional, a hot mess train express at all times. I don’t know that I’ve been as honest as I am right now, especially because it’s something that I’m currently going through and is currently happening.”

Like all the visuals for THE S(EX) TAPES, the visual for “Shh…Don’t Say It” was shot by FLETCHER’s ex Shannon Beveridge, and filmed during their time together in quarantine. “I wanted this EP to just be a really fucking honest representation of what it is like to love somebody, have such a connection, but also have all these questions,” FLETCHER explained in an interview with Clash Magazine.
Along with “Shh…Don’t Say It,” THE S(EX) TAPES features a string of singles released over the last few weeks including “If I Hated You,” and “The One,” as well as “Bitter” — produced by labelmate Kito (Diplo, Empress Of, Aluna George) that recently surpassed 30 million global streams and also marks FLETCHER’s highest-charting single on iTunes to date. Directed by FLETCHER herself, the irresistibly provocative video for “Bitter” is available HERE.
THE S(EX) TAPES arrives as the follow-up to FLETCHER’s acclaimed debut EP you ruined new york city for me — a 2019 release featuring her breakthrough hit “Undrunk.” In addition to spending several weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, “Undrunk” earned the #1 spot on Spotify’s Viral Chart, emerged as the fastest-rising song at Pop radio from a new artist in the past five years and garnered FLETCHER a nomination for iHeartRadio’s Best New Pop Artist. Praised by leading outlets like PAPER, TIME, Wonderland, V Magazine, Nylon, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview Magazine, GQ, and more, FLETCHER hails from a beach town in New Jersey, where she cultivated her passion for music and unforgettably candid songwriting voice. After graduating from NYU’s famed Clive Davis Institute for Recorded Music, FLETCHER carved out a distinct space for herself in pop music. Over the years, FLETCHER has sold out several headline tours, earned impressive slots at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Life is Beautiful, and other major festivals.
