Kacey Johansing’s upcoming album ‘No Better Time’ will be an extravaganza of beauty and delight, if ‘I Try’ is any indication. And it’s easy to fall in love with ‘I Try’, as Kacey’s voluptuous vocals, drape you in it.
Just can’t be help feeling that fuzzy feeling.
It’s what Kacey does. Honestly, forebodingly, unabashedly.
Produced by kacey, with multi-instrumentalist Tim Ramsey (Vetiver, Fruit Bats), engineered by Tyler Karmen (DIIV, Alvvays) and mixed by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith, Cat Power), the album includes contributions from Todd Dahlhoff (Feist, Devendra Banhart), Trevor Beld Jimenez (Parting Lines) and Amir Yaghmai (Julian Casablancas + The Voidz), to give that undeniable glow and vibe.
Kacey’s got the goods in ‘I Try’.

Today I’m happy to share the first single “I Try” from my upcoming album “No Better Time”—now streaming everywhere! You can check out the video premiering on @talkhouse today. Link in bio:) Thanks to my dear friend Eric from @fruit_bats for leading me into this new moment with such kind and loving words. You can also pre-order the new album on Bandcamp now. Releasing new music is scary. There is a fear you won’t be seen or loved even though sometimes being seen is what scares us the most. This song, though upbeat, speaks to that feeling. That yearning to want to figure out how to love and receive love before you miss it. So with that I release this song and hope it brings joy and reminds you to give love and let love in during these crazy times. It was an honor to work with this incredible team just before the world began to shut down back in March.
