GLAAD Media Award-winning singer-songwriter Fletcher has announced that new album In Search of the Antidote will be released March 22. The new single “Lead Me On” is set to drop on January 25 along with a music video directed by Alexandre Moors who has worked with Kendrick Lamar and the queen herself, Beyoncé.
In Search of the Antidote is a follow up to her debut, Girl Of My Dreams and features her recent track “Eras Of Us”. Her sophomore album explores identity, insecurity, ego, and self-fulfillment with distinct production and powerful vocal delivery.
“Over the years, I’ve looked for the antidote in so many things: women, the road, the stage, fans, spirituality and self-reflection,” said Fletcher in a statement. “Making this album was an excavation, a deep dive where I asked myself what would truly heal me, and my ultimate realization was that love is the antidote. From the Finding Fletcher EP to you ruined new york city for me to THE S(EX) TAPES to Girl Of My Dreams, love has always been my muse. But before now, I don’t think I’d ever really looked at love through all the different lenses and angles and discovered all its infinite manifestations. That’s what this album is about for me.”
Fletcher won the 2023 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Music Artist and she scored noms at the MTV Video Music Awards and MTV Europe Music Awards. She also appeared as herself in the third season of The L Word: Generation Q on Showtime, launched her own “FLETCHER & Friends” festival in her hometown of Asbury Park, and raised over $200K for GLAAD as part of her hugely popular Meet Her At The Bar: Pride Month Experience— a series of pop-ups in support of women-owned queer bars across America. Fletcher’s global headline tour is set for the spring with performances in UK, Europe and Australia as well as Lollapalooza South America in Brazil, Chile and Argentina in March.
