February 22, 2024—Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Katie Pruitt’s new song, “All My Friends,” is debuting today. Listen/share HERE.
Of the song, Pruitt shares, “‘All My Friends’ is inspired by a Christian Wiman poem about getting older and witnessing your friends change their beliefs in search for themselves. Some of their beliefs you may not agree with but if it makes them a kinder, happier and more loving person, then what’s the harm?”
“All My Friends” is the latest song unveiled from Pruitt’s highly anticipated new album, Mantras, which will be released April 5 via Rounder Records (pre-order/pre-save here). Ahead of the release, Pruitt has shared two additional tracks: “Blood Related” and “White Lies, White Jesus and You,” which Rolling Stone selected as a “Song You Need To Know,” while Entertainment Focus praises, “captivating…the best new song we have heard in 2024 so far.”
Produced by Jake Finch and Collin Pastore (both known for their work with boygenius and Lucy Dacus) and recorded at Nashville’s The Shed, Mantras is Pruitt’s most personal work to date and first new album in five years, following her acclaimed 2019 debut, Expectations. Across these eleven tracks, Pruitt takes her introspective songwriting to new heights, as she explores complex relationships with family, religion and her own mind.
Reflecting on the project, Pruitt shares, “Mantras is a full circle journey from self-sabotage to self-compassion. Writing this record forced me to stop seeking external validation from the rest of the world and turn my focus inward. After hitting a low point that caused me to seek extensive therapy, I realized I had a problem with negative self-talk. So I started writing down phrases of encouragement and repeating mantras in the mirror. Through this practice I learned how to be a kinder friend to myself and ultimately a kinder friend to others. When life gets heavy and the future feel overwhelmingly out of our control, we can learn to turn inwards and build a home inside of ourselves.”
Known for her powerful live performances, Pruitt will kick off her extensive headline tour next month, which includes stops at Atlanta’s Terminal West, Dallas’ Kessler Theater, Austin’s Parish, Denver’s Bluebird Theater, Seattle’s Neumos, Boston’s Brighton Music Hall, New York’s Bowery Ballroom, Philadelphia’s World Café Live and Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl among many others. See below for complete tour itinerary. Full details can be found at www.katiepruitt.com/tour.

In addition to Pruitt, Finch and Pastore, Mantras also features musicians Maggie Chaffee (strings), Dave Cohen (keys), Anthony Da Costa (guitar), Kris Donegan (guitar), Laura Epling (strings), Camille Faulkner (strings), Will Honaker (guitar, keys), Taylor Ivey (bass), Kevin McGowan (drums) and Johnny Williamson (guitar).

The new music adds to a series of breakout years for Pruitt following Expectations, of which NPR Morning Editionpraised, “such clarity of expression and disarming intimacy—
Expectations is aesthetically warmhearted even in its tensest moments of confrontation.” Additionally, Rolling Stonedeclared, “A soaring vocalist and agile guitarist, Pruitt is a dynamic new presence,” while Pitchfork proclaimed, “With stately ballads and choruses to shatter glass, the Nashville singer-songwriter’s debut builds into a record that feels deeply thoughtful and unified.”
Originally from the Atlanta suburbs and now based in Nashville, Pruitt has garnered widespread attention since her debut. She has been highlighted as a Rolling Stone “Artist You Need To Know,” one of NPR Music’s “Slingshot: 20 Artists To Watch” and has performed as part of CBS Mornings’ “Saturday Sessions” series and NPR Music’s “Tiny Desk (Home Concert)” series. In addition to numerous sold-out headline shows, Pruitt has also toured with artists such as Brandi Carlile, Indigo Girls, Shakey Graves, My Morning Jacket, American Aquarium, Lucero, City and Colour and more.
