Quinn XCII’s consistent growth has lead to his highly sought-after and fully energized live show occurring tomorrow night. The drive-in concert at City National Grove of Anaheim’s Drive-In OC sold out within minutes and comes just days after the release of his fourth album Change of Scenery II. It comes more than five years after his life-changing debut EP Change of Scenery.
Created amidst quarantine when Quinn XCII left Los Angeles for his longtime friend and album executive producer ayokay’s vacation home in Rhode Island. After two week-long trips filled with recording in a makeshift living room studio, the album was born. One of the 12 tracks, his song “My Wife & 2 Dogs” documents the making of the album and serves as an ode to unrestricted creativity.
In line with the album, Quinn XCII also recently premiered an official lyric video for his song with Alexander 23 “We Don’t Talk Enough” about the struggle that comes with growing away from your oldest friends. The video is a split-screen of Quinn XCII and Alexander 23 who will also serve as a special guest at the drive-in performance.
Watch the video below.
The album’s lead single “Stay Next to Me” feat. Chelsea Cutler is filled with beautiful piano melodies to help create the picture-perfect moment and feeling of love at first sight. The duo performed the December hit single which has over 23 million streams on Spotify on The Late Late Show with James Corden back in February.
Watch the performance below.
“Through making this album I was able to stop and appreciate certain things that I’d been overlooking in the day-to-day,” said Quinn XCII. “It taught me how important it is to enjoy the simple pleasures, the people closest to you, and to never take anything for granted. I hope that hearing these songs helps other people to feel that same kind of excitement and joy.”
