Frankie Cosmos, the band led by singer-songwriter Greta Kline, will be releasing a limited edition cassette tape featuring cover songs this fall. The tape will be available for the first time at Webster Hall on November 13th, the biggest New York headline play to date and a perfect homecoming to round out what has been a huge year for the band. 

Kline told us how the collection of songs came about, saying, "whenever I'm really excited about a song I want to learn it, and it becomes the first thing I play every time I pick up an instrument. These are all songs by people I know and have seen perform a lot and have been inspired by. I recorded these covers last winter in my bedroom."

It's been non stop for Frankie Cosmos, playing shows around North America and the UK and Europe, the band is currently on the road here in the US and will be returning to Europe for a much anticipated stop at Iceland Airwaves festival before. All tour dates are listed below.

Next Thing has received critical acclaim across the board from everyone including The New York Times, Rolling Stone and Pitchfork and is sure to feature on several Best Of 2016 End Of Year Lists. If you haven't yet experienced world of Frankie Cosmos, now is the time, you can download or stream the album in full. 

Acclaim for Next Thing:

"Next Thing shows that as the group continues to grow up, Kline's clear-eyed observation and youthful disaffection only feel more vital." Rolling Stone

"Frankie Cosmos, led by singer Greta Kline, makes wonderfully light, breezy, sweet songs that are just delightful." NPR

"Frankie Cosmos manages to be both devastating and uplifting. The young indie musician's greatest talents lie in her lyrics; she's a wordsmith who's brevity hints at suppressed emotions beneath the surface...Next Thing is a gem that speaks to the soul." BUST

"Kline has created a perfectly insular work, one whose songs display a newfound textual richness while retaining their unkempt edges." Under The Radar

"Kline recalls the legible confessionals of Colleen Green or Kimya Dawson and the bright-eyed melancholy of Beat Happening or Cub, all while building from her greatest strength: being immediately and deliberately herself." SPIN

"This patchwork of tracks makes for an album that doesn't have much of a thematic through-line beyond the anxiety-ridden adolescence that Kline's songwriting naturally gravitates towards, but it does result in 15 songs worth of the sharpest, most accomplished Frankie Cosmos material to date." Stereogum

"On Next Thing, Frankie Cosmos stands tall as an individual in a sea of bland lo-fi dudes, unfolding 15 songs in the palms of her hands that are endlessly re-playable." Consequence of Sound
