Melanie Martinez recently returned with a brand new studio album ‘K-12’ - which she debuted through the release of an accompanying full-length film.
With no releases of songs prior to the album/film release, Martinez brought all 13 songs to life with the film set in the fictional K-12 Sleepaway School, with songs that touch on sexism, fake friends, insecurities, and more.
