FRESH: ‘Tainted Love’ – Kyan Palmer

Kyan Palmer puts an R&B/Pop spin on his new version of “Tainted Love”.

2018 has been a year packed with successes for Los Angeles-based Kyan Palmer and he’s capping it off with one final treat. Available on all streaming platforms today, Palmer has put his lush R&B-pop spin on Gloria Jones’ iconic single “Tainted Love”.

Originally recorded by Gloria Jones in 1964, “Tainted Love” has been covered far and wide, most notably by synth-pop duo Soft Cell in 1981. On his choice to cover the timeless anthem, Palmer explains, “it’s one of my favorite songs and it’s such a fun song to cover. I wanted to bring something new, something more ‘2018’ to it. I believe that a good song can withstand time and ‘Tainted Love’ is just one of those songs”.

Arizona-bred, LA-based Kyan Palmer has had a massive year with the release of his debut EP, “Burn Mona Lisa”. The EP was named after Palmer’s breakout single, “Burn Mona Lisa” which was released while Palmer was still working as a marketing assistant at Republic Records. With no expectations and no team behind him, the debut single took a life of its own, rapidly amassing over 3 million streams and hitting the viral Spotify charts in the US, Canada, and Singapore.

The EP includes other hit singles such as “Make It Up”, “Hidden Feelings” and “Poetry In Motion” as well as a number of previously unreleased tracks. Succinctly weaving together buoyant melodies, intoxicating pop production, and Palmer’s signature soulful R&B vocals, the EP is a captivating sonic journey from start to finish.

With press coming in from tastemakers such as Z100, Cliche Magazine, Substream Magazine, Nest HQ, Pop Dust, Atwood Magazine, and more, Kyan Palmer is sure to have another victorious year ahead.
