Tones and I unveils new singles ‘Bad Child’ and ‘Can’t Be Happy All The Time’

Australian artist Tones And I has unveiled two brand new singles – Bad Child and Can’t Be Happy All The Time – available today on all streaming platforms. The new singles notably mark the record-breaking and rising superstar’s first new music since the 2019 release of her debut EP, THE KIDS ARE COMING, which features the global smash ‘Dance Monkey’.

Tones And I elaborated on the new songs explaining, ’Can’t Be Happy All The Time’ is a song about the struggles of rising to fame so quickly and dealing with a dramatic change in lifestyle – the good and bad that comes with it.”  She detailed ‘Bad Child’ noting, “I’ve always wanted to write a song in someone else’s shoes; writing from their perspective. ‘Bad Child’ was the first time I got to do that. It’s seeing life growing up through someone else’s eyes,” adding “this is the first of a bunch of songs I’m releasing this year and I can’t wait to share more.”

Tones And I recently completed the first leg of her sold-out North American tour and is currently canvasing Europe. The sold-out run, which continues tonight in Berlin, will see Tones And I delivering performances in Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria and France, before returning to the US in April.  The second leg of her North American tour will feature stops in Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Philadelphia and Toronto, along with two nights in New York City.  Tones recently announced her Australia headline tour with multiple shows already sold out, as well as part of the national Groovin’ The Moo festival this April / May.

Just last month, Tones And I served up an alternate version of Never Seen The Rain – the original recording appears on THE KIDS ARE COMING EP – which is accompanied by a live performance video. The expanded take finds Tones And I delivering a powerful and transcendent performance, joined by a choir and three-piece band. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/BxqtS-7GxFMTones And I also showcased her staggering voice across performances of her breakout global hit Dance Monkey and Never Seen The Rain appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Voice, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Today Show.

Tones And I has already made history with the breakout success of ‘Dance Monkey’. It not only emerged as the “most Shazam’ed single of all time” but it also eclipsed 2 billion streams and earned a platinum certification from the RIAA in the US while reaching multiplatinum or diamond certification in fifteen other countries. Plus, ‘Dance Monkey’ hit #4 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, making ‘Dance Monkey’ the first top five Hot 100 hit solely written by a woman in over eight years.  In Australia, ‘Dance Monkey’ holds the all-time record for the most weeks spent at #1 on the ARIA singles chart, while in the UK ‘Dance Monkey’ has made Tones And I the longest running  #1 of all time by a female artist on the Official Singles ChartThe New York Times recently detailed the making of ‘Dance Monkey’ in their Diary of a Song video series, speaking with Tones And I about her journey from local busker to global star.

Originally from Australia’s Mornington Peninsula, Tones And I travelled to Byron Bay in early 2018 to take a chance at busking. On the first day she had crowds spilling onto the street. Tones quit her retail job and decided to make Byron her new home where she lived out of her van for a year, honing her song writing and busking every weekend. Today, ‘Dance Monkey’ has been certified 9x platinum by the ARIA with Tones And I taking home four major wins at this year’s ARIA Awards including Breakthrough Artist, Best Female Artist, Best Pop Release, and Best Independent Release.
