Kacy Hill Premieres Video For “Hard To Love”

For immediate release



08 June 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Arizona native Kacy Hill has revealed the breathtaking video for the the expansive new track Hard to Love. The single comes from the highly-anticipated debut album from the sultry chanteuse, Like A Woman, which will be released June 30 via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam Recordings/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.

Like A Woman is executive produced by Kanye West, who signed Hill to his imprint on the strength of her contributions as a member of the Vanessa Beecroft-curated performance troupe for his Yeezus tour, offering his mentorship and advice.

Results are heard on the first two singles. The Stuart Price-produced Hard to Love is a sweet song about being let down, with Hill’s voice front and centre, tender and pleading, while the album’s title track, produced by DJ Mustard, is a passionate, slow-burner, building gently before it opens up to give Hill’s voice room to breathe.

"Like A Woman is an exploration of my own femininity and sexuality,” Hill said. “I want my audience to have a similar experience of their own while listening. My goal is not to make a statement, but make space for exploration without shame or guilt. I don't speak for all women. I speak for Kacy Hill." At Kanye’s suggestion, Hill has made serious changes in her sound and her story as an artist: focusing on her voice, finding her own melody, and writing from the parts of her heart that she had previously kept close. The songs on Like A Woman are about intimacy, longing, heartbreak, and exploration.

Hailed by New York magazine as “ethereal yet catchy” and “one to watch,” Hill has steadily built her buzz over the past two years – Top 10 on the Dazed & Confused Readers’ 100 List, a tour in support of Jack Garratt, features on debut albums by Travis Scott and Cashmere Cat, a collaborator on Kid Cudi’s album, the cover of V magazine’s music issue, and several fashion spreads in Vogue.  Last month alone, Kacy could be found in Elle’s ‘Women In Music’ issue, a huge spread in Flaunt, and on the cover of Galore.

Like A Woman is the long-awaited follow-up to Kacy’s 2015 debut EP, Bloo, containing the viral hit Arm’s Length along with Foreign Fields, which broke the Top 5 on Spotify’s Global Viral Top 50 chart. As Kacy Hill’s story continues to unfold and her already-impressive buzz continues to grow, the stage is set for the breakthrough of one of 2017’s most exciting artists.
