Billboard premiered the album's "No One Can Tell You." It is also streaming via Kill Rock Stars' official YouTube channel. "It's hard to believe this is the first solo album Wilson is putting out throughout the entirety of her career," notes Billboard, adding, "With CHANGE, Wilson was able to experiment with her own creativity and learn about music in an entirely different light. The result is something melodic, calm even, and at times fueled by disco- tinged rhythms."

CHANGE is further highlighted by the shimmering single, "Mystic," hailed by Stereogum as "an excellent slice of icy, synth-streaked new wave" in its exclusive premiere earlier this summer. "With lush synths and a funky motorik rhythm section, 'Mystic' is a celestial wave of chill," raved NPR Music. "Wilson's voice is still a tease, perfectly suited to the Gary Numan-indebted cool the band cultivates."

Known the world over as a vocalist, songwriter and founding member of the one and only B- 52s, Wilson has been touring all summer and fall with additional dates to be announced soon. For updates and more, please see killrockstars.com.
CHANGE began for Wilson nearly a decade ago upon her part-time return to her hometown of Athens, GA. She first encountered local musicians Ryan Monahan and Lemuel Hayes when their Beatles tribute band was hired to play her son's birthday party. Wilson, Monahan, and Hayes began teaming up for gigs, performing classic garage and psychedelic covers, before ultimately hitting the studio to create new music all their own. Athens-based producer/musician Suny Lyons was soon enlisted to join the creative quartet, resulting in the SUNRISE and SUPERNATURAL EPs, acclaimed by PopMatters for possessing "an undeniable sense of adventure."
Produced by Lyons at The Space Station in Athens, CHANGE is as bold as anything in Wilson's groundbreaking four decade canon, melding future pop, disco drama, American standards, electronica, and more into her own distinctive creative vision. New songs like "Mystic" and the transformative title track are intricate and inventive, lush and luminous with strings, synthesizers, harmonies, and Wilson's utterly distinct vocal magic. Further highlights include a pair of unexpected covers: New Colony Six's soft rock classic, "Things I'd Like to Say," and "Brother," written and originally performed by Athens' own beloved Oh-OK. With CHANGE, Cindy Wilson has once again remade pop in her own innovative, irresistible image.
