Anthony Green has released his new single, “From What I Understand”, which is premiering exclusively on Fuse. Listen HERE. “From What I Understand”, a song about working through all the trials of parenthood and marriage, is the second release from Anthony’s forthcoming album, Pixie Queen, due out September 9th on Memory Music. Specifically, Green says, “This song represents a time when in our relationship where we fought a lot and these moments in time didn’t feel good. It was difficult for us to spend any quality time together and having three kids, we were tired all the time. You go through these phases where you don’t see like yourself anymore.” The song is about working out all of those elements to stay in a happy and healthy relationship.
Produced by Will Yip and featuring contributions from Good Old War’s Tim Arnold and Keith Goodwin, Pixie Queen, a follow-up to 2013’s Young Legs, is an intimate and stripped-down effort, featuring raw lyricism and musical execution. Earlier this month, Green released “You’ll Be Fine”, the first taste of the album, which can be watched HERE. Fans can now pre-order Pixie Queen HERE.
This September, Green will be heading out on a month-long solo tour in support of Pixie Queen. Kicking off on September 2nd in Boston, MA and wrapping on October 1st in Green’s home-base of Philadelphia, PA, the “Pixie Queen Tour” will include 22 shows across the United States, with special guests Mat Kerekes and Secret Space.

Anthony Green first began his solo career in 2008 with the release of his debut LP, Avalon. Since then, he has gone on to release a handful of acclaimed albums, including 2012’s Beautiful Things, which peaked at No. 27 on the Billboard 200 chart, and 2013’s Young Legs, which charted at No. 67. This September,the Pixie Queen Tour will usher in a brand new era for the prolific musician.
Pennsylvania natives Green and Yip have been working together for years on music, so it made perfect sense for them to partner for the release of Pixie Queen. Yip had the vision of keeping everything under one roof, harkening back to the days of Motown, where the album was written, produced, mixed, mastered and released all within the same team. Memory Music is home to releases created in the legendary Philadelphia-area recording house, Studio 4. Yip, who has produced and engineered albums for Lauryn Hill, Title Fight, Circa Survive, Balance + Composure, La Dispute and Pianos Become the Teeth, launched the label in 2015 to highlight the community of artists he’s built around his studio and the overall vibe generated by the studio space. Each release reflects the uniqueness of Studio 4’s room and the way each artist uses it differently, creating varied albums that all carry a cohesive thread of their creative environment and Yip’s touch.
