Following the viral success of her body-positivity anthem “Fat,” singer-songwriter Kate Yeager returns with a stirring new single, “Edit,” in which Yeager delivers a poignant exploration of self-acceptance and the journey to authenticity, especially for young queer people. The track is shared alongside an incredible Princess Diaries-esque music video that was brought to life by a queer woman-led video team. “Edit” comes just in time for pride month, encouraging listeners to challenge societal norms and celebrate individuality.

Remarks Kate:

“I feel like the qualifier for a pride song is generally about self-acceptance and living your truth. But I feel like it often gets lost that it takes a while to get there. This isn’t about the destination. It’s about the journey. It’s about feeling the pressure to mute certain parts of yourself. To be less gay, less queer, to make yourself more palatable for other people. This song is the painful the realization that people don’t get the full you when you make changes to yourself for their happiness.”

Kate Yeager quickly went viral online with her single “Fat,” racking up over 30 million views on IG + TikTok to date, and received praise from celebrities around the world, such as Julianne Moore, Carnie Wilson, Kristen Chenoweth, Jane Weidlin (Gogo’s) and Sara Bareilles, who all voiced their support for Kate’s music and message. She premiered the official single alongside a music video via PAPER Magazine. Now, she’s also shared the acoustic version of the song “Fat (Naked Version),” also with a music video.

Teaming up with Grammy-nominated producer Jared Anderson, Kate’s forthcoming EP Before the Lights Go Out explores themes of vulnerability, love, and self-discovery. Kate reflects on her collection of songs, “I am in my vulnerable era – there isn’t a lot of holding back. My music is crushingly blunt and unguarded.” The 2023 single “Fat” – about her lifelong struggle with being comfortable in her body – caught fire online, as a performance clip of the tune rapidly racked up over 15 million views on social media. The viral track inspired fans to share their stories and garnered praise from fans and celebrities worldwide.

Kate will hit the road this summer for a handful of U.S. tour dates. Find tickets and more information HERE.
