The Aces have shared new song "Kelly" from their forthcoming second album Under My Influence to mark the start of Pride Month.
On Twitter, The Aces wrote of the song, "It's been challenging to know what to post right now, while in the midst of an album release, because we really have just wanted our platform (particularly in the past week) to be advocating for and pointing all attention to the fight against racial injustice in our country."
They add, "The song that we released today is an openly queer love song and it feels so important to us, especially because June is Pride Month. It is also the first time we have openly expressed in our MUSIC the diversity in sexuality within our band."
The Aces say of their new album, "When we set out to write Under My Influence, we didn’t know exactly what would come out. All we knew was there was one rule. If you felt too vulnerable, if it scared you, then you had to keep going. Every time we wrote a song, that was our mentality. We knew we wanted to come back with an album that left everybody feeling like The Aces would never make the same thing twice. These songs are truly the stories of our lives. Under My Influence means so many things to us, but above all, it means unapologetically becoming who you are."
