Queen Kwong - Couples Only (LP)
Release Update: Release date bumped from 7/29/2022 to TBD
Carré Callaway aka QUEEN KWONG returns for her third and most fiercely visceral album to date. Produced by Joe Cardamone (The Icarus Line) and featuring guest performances by members of Swans, The Cure, and Blood Red Shoes, COUPLES ONLY is a truly defiant statement.
A few years ago, Carré Kwong Callaway—aka Queen Kwong—was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis and told she may only have a decade left to live.
Couples Only it’s an outpouring of pure feeling and visceral thought that captures every emotion that comes with both the grieving and recovery process. It's a fearless account of facing the worst betrayals and accepting the deepest losses. It's the realization of one's mortality and the impermanence of everything we know and cherish. But, ultimately, it’s a testament to the endurance of the human spirit. Because while this record is unashamedly about the darkest period of Carré’s life, it doesn’t wallow. It can be accusatory and violent, but there's no time wasted on self-pity.
From the razor sharp midnight swagger of “I Know Who You Are” to the post modern doo-wop of “On The Run” and the Lynch-ian pop hooks of closer “Without You, Whatever" COUPLES ONLY is a fearless testament of endurance and survival in the face of betrayal, loss, and mortality.
