In Search Of The Antidote — the highly anticipated new album from FLETCHER — is out today via EMI/Capitol Records.The second full-length from the acclaimed singer/songwriter, In Search Of The Antidote brings FLETCHER’s guitar-driven pop and captivating voice to songs exploring impulse, ego, identity, and self-realization. Go HERE to stream/download In Search Of The Antidote now.

Arriving on the heels of her widely lauded debut LP Girl Of My Dreams — a 2022 release that entered the Billboard 200 at No. 15 — In Search Of The Antidote emerged from an effort to examine “love in all its infinite manifestations,” she also used her fiercely self-aware songwriting to delve deeper into the ultra-vivid storytelling and unfiltered introspection that have long defined FLETCHER’s boundary-pushing brand of pop.

Says FLETCHER, “Over the years, I’ve looked for the antidote in so many things: women, the road, the stage, fans, spirituality and self-reflection. Making this album was an excavation, a deep dive where I asked myself what would truly heal me, and my ultimate realization was that love is the antidote. From the Finding Fletcher EP to you ruined new york city for me to THE S(EX) TAPES to Girl Of My Dreams, love has always been my muse. But before now, I don’t think I’d ever really looked at love through all the different lenses and angles and discovered all its infinite manifestations. That’s what this album is about for me.” 

Made in collaboration with GRAMMY®-winning producer/songwriter Jennifer Decilveo and with hitmakers like AldaeJon BellionJulia MichaelsMonsters & Strangerz, and Michael PollackIn Search Of The Antidote has already earned praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, who hailed it as “full of raw emotion.” In a recent feature Rolling Stone also declared that “FLETCHER had established herself as one of pop’s most versatile stars. She can pen a heartbreak ballad or craft a raucous dance hit and have tens of thousands sing the words back at her.”

A shining example of the album’s layered emotionality, FLETCHER’s brand-new single “Pretending” channels intense longing, bittersweet frustration, and absolute surrender all in the very same breath. Inspired by early 2000s pop rock icons like Avril Lavigne, Michelle Branch and Kelly Clarkson, the single spotlights her powerful vocal performance over gorgeously jagged guitar tones. FLETCHER’s voice slips from tender to soulful as she speaks to the exquisite ache in attempting to hide your feelings from the one you desire.

“I don’t know if it’s because I’m a Pisces, but I can meet a beautiful person in a coffee shop and suddenly start asking myself, ‘What would my life look like with you?’” says FLETCHER. “‘Pretending’ is about having that person at the back of your mind who makes you keep wondering, ‘Is it going to be us that end up together one day?’”

Along with “Pretending,” In Search Of The Antidote includes FLETCHER’s previously released singles “Eras Of Us” (named a “Song You Need To Know” by Rolling Stone and featured on Billboards “10 Cool Pop Songs To Get You Through The Week”), Lead Me On (featured as the cover of New Music Daily on Apple Music), and Doing Better (an explosively fun track Apple Music’s Zane Lowe deemed his favorite from the album”).

FLETCHER kicked off album release week with a performance at Lollapalooza South America, followed by a sold-out tour of Europe and the UK in April and May.The In Search Of The Antidote Tour will also bring her one-of-a-kind live show to Australia and New Zealand in July, with a string of tour dates in addition to an appearance at the massively popular festival Splendor In The Grass.
