The wait is over for fans of Frankie Cosmos, she’s back with new music in the form of a brand new EP titled Fit Me In, coming out November 13th on Bayonet Records. The first track was released today titled “Sand,” and she noted “I wrote it in the beginning of this spring, while getting excited about just being able to be outside longer and spend time in NYC, and coming up with date ideas (like touching all the books on the racks outside the Strand)”
Frankie Cosmos is the project of NYC native Greta Kline who began writing songs under the pseudonym in late 2011. Kline’s songs are short and melodic, each poetically telling her story. Her songwriting is inspired in part by Arthur Russell, Connie Converse and poet Frank O’Hara.

Unstoppably prolific, Kline began self-releasing a steady stream of home recorded albums on Bandcamp. In 2013, Kline began to focus more on performing and recording with the help of her newly formed 4 piece band. Kline’s years of songwriting and production culminated in the recording of her first studio album Zentropy, released in 2014. Her debut was met with critical acclaim, gaining her a Rising feature from Pitchfork and ranking as the #1 pop album of the year by New York Magazine.
Frankie Cosmos’ upcoming EP, Fit Me In, is a one-off experiment in “fitting” Kline’s songwriting into an electronic sound, characteristic of current pop culture. The EP is a collaboration with Aaron Maine of Porches, who produced the songs using mostly electronic equipment in place of the live band instrumentation. Frankie Cosmos’ forthcoming album will be the first made with four band members and is slated for release from Bayonet Records in 2016.
