As her new EP “Sis, He Wasn’t the One” is set to be released next week, Kirby shares her new single Can We Be Friends? I think lately I’ve been having a hard time letting go. Because of the pandemic, my relationships feel less disposable to me. I recently fell into a situation that’s teaching me that every love story isn’t a forever story. And though I feel the relationship ending, a part of me wants to still hold on to the person. I can’t help but ask myself if I can do this one differently, that maybe my next ex isn’t my ex at all. We’re more than that; we’re friends. I guess we’ll see how that goes on the next album…”
This new single follows the exhilarating, elastic funk of “Coconut Oil” and the anthemic, retro R&B of “Boyz II Men”, and further showcases the breadth and scope across the 10 tracks on the “Sis, He Wasn’t the One” EP, which also features a collaboration with BJ The Chicago Kid.
he “Sis, He Wasn’t the One” EP is just the latest step in KIRBY’s ever-expanding catalogue, and her newest foray into showing listeners her original sound as the “granddaughter of soul.” With a coveted support slot on the John Legend’s forthcoming US tour this autumn (live dates here) expect to hear much more in the coming months.
