Multi-platinum pop phenomenon Melanie Martinez is celebrating the release of her “AFTER SCHOOL” EP.
“AFTER SCHOOL” includes seven brand new songs, including “The Bakery,” produced by Blake Slatkin and accompanied by an equally engaging companion video directed and costume designed by Melanie herself.

Melanie Martinez's creative drive and talents have always distinguished her from other musicians. Her compelling music and visual art have created a rabid global fanbase with over 8.4 million followers on Instagram, 11.4 million subscribers on YouTube, 6.3 billion global streams, and 2.4 billion official YouTube views. After releasing her 2015 debut album, Cry Baby—which has amassed over 3.5 billion streams worldwide —she conceived and directed a video for each song on the album. These mini-movies traced the traumas and insecurities experienced by the album's character, Cry Baby.

Melanie’s sophomore album and film, K-12, is another ambitious triumph. K-12's music is a vibrant and singular melting pot of low-key hip-hop, soulful pop and indie-leaning electro. K-12's universe is an expansion of the one introduced in Cry Baby. Using lyrics rich with metaphor, songs address the struggle to find a place to belong—including within friendships, the physical world and romantically—even when fitting into society feels like an uphill battle. Since releasing her K-12 album last September, Melanie has released 13 new music videos from the project which have now garnered over 100 million views collectively.

To accompany the album, Martinez also wrote, directed, and co-wardrobe designed a 90-minute movie (also called K-12) that incorporates the album's music and mirrors the themes and characters introduced. Filmed on location in Budapest, Hungary, the movie focuses on Cry Baby (portrayed by Martinez) and a class of students who find themselves trapped in a horror house-like residential school. As they experience the usual grade school rites of passage—a lunchroom food fight, the embarrassment of gym class, a romance with nefarious intentions, courses taught by checked-out teachers— they have to figure out a way to escape. Along with receiving over 64 million official YouTube views, K-12 was also the 6th highest grossing film in US cinemas on release day, September 3, 2019, with screenings in over 400 cinemas in 32 countries.

Melanie kicked off 2020 with the renewed success of Cry Baby, which recently re-entered the charts more than five years after its initial release propelled by the worldwide TikTok fan favorite “Play Date.” “Play Date” is approaching 500 million global streams.
