Kat & Alex announce "Side A"

Tuesday, August 30, 2022 – Kat & Alex announced "Side A" of their self-titled EP arrives Sept. 16.

"We're so excited to share this EP," said the lone Latino duo on a major country label. "Songs tell our stories, and it introduces us to the world not only as musicians but also as a couple. Sonically, 'Side A' is a melting pot, which is true to who we are. You'll hear country, which is the root of it, as well as some rock, soul and pop. The common theme of the music though is love, which is purposeful because our relationship is full of love, and it's the core of everything we do."

Kat & Alex, who are husband and wife, co-wrote every track except "Marry You," which was written by label mate Maren Morris and the late writer/producer Busbee. "When we heard this song, we felt like it told our story, which was really cool because it was Maren's song to Ryan. We reimagined it as a duet and added a bit of Latin drums to make it our own."

Kat and Alex have released music in both English and Spanish. On Friday, they shared their latest track, "Mi Casa," which is the Spanish version of recently released "We Bought A House." This is the third entirely Spanish song they've released this year following "Tomemos Un Trago," the Spanish version of "Let's Find A Bar" and "Yo Quiero Amarte," the Spanish version of "I Want It All."

The track list is:
1. Let's Find a Bar (Kat Georgia/Alex Georgia/Jared Keim/Jared Scott Slocum)
2. 5 on a Friday (Kat Georgia/Alex Georgia/Chris Loocke/Austin Taylor Smith)
3. Marry You (busbee/Maren Morris)
4. I Want It All (Kat Georgia/Alex Georgia/AJ Pruis)
5. We Bought a House (Kat Georgia/Alex Georgia/Josh Osborne/Lindsay Rimes)
6. Still In It (Kat Georgia/Alex Georgia/Jason Massey/Austin Taylor Smith)
7. I Want It All (Spanglish Version) (Kat Georgia/Alex Georgia/AJ Pruis)

** Produced by Brad Hill except "We Bought A House," which was produced by Lindsay Rimes

There was no word on when "Side B" would be released.

Kat is a Miami native and first-generation American from a Cuban family. Alex, who is of Puerto Rican descent, grew up in northwestern Georgia and moved to Miami by middle school. Their paths crossed after Kat witnessed Alex singing one day at their church, and the two quickly bonded after meeting to collaborate. They appeared on American Idol individually before returning home to focus on writing and recording original music as a duo, before making their way to Nashville in 2020.

Kat & Alex released their debut single "How Many Times" and its accompanying Spanish version in the fall of 2020. The following year the couple tied the knot and made their Grand Ole Opry debut
