Last year, we pegged Priscilla Block as one to watch – with the release of her catchy melodic single, I Bet You Wanna Know, the follow up to her self-aware, lightly comedic pop-country tracks like Thick Thighs and PMS. Now, Block has released a brand-new song from her forthcoming debut album.

Block says, “My Bar is a song we wrote probably two or three years ago, and it’s funny because I’ve always loved this song and when I wrote it, I could kind of hear potentially a guy cutting this song. And I thought it’s kinda cool hearing a girl say, ‘This is my bar.’ Like, everyone knows a guy loves a good bar, but why can’t a girl love a good bar, and this song just kind of feels like my anthem.”

The defiantly independent track written by Block, Stone Aielli and Lexie Hayden, and is a glimpse into the overall feeling of her debut album, Welcome To The Block Party – an unapologetic recapturing of one’s own self-worth and unwavering confidence.

Produced by Robbie Artress, Jake Curry, and Justin Johnson, Welcome To The Block Party follows last year’s six-song self-titled Priscilla Block EP, the highest-performing country female debut EP of 2021. Bringing a lyrically driven blend of country-pop and southern rock – a.k.a. the “Block Party” sound – to Nashville’s evolving musical landscape, Welcome To The Block Party features 12 songs, all written by the newcomer, including Just About Over You, the Top 15 smash and highest peaking debut single from a female country artist in 2021.

She adds, “I cannot believe that my debut album is almost here. It has all the trash, all the sass, and all the sad. But hey, that’s my life, and I’m so excited for the world to finally hear this. I wrote all of these songs from a real and raw place, and I am grateful that I have the opportunity to show various aspects of where I’ve been and who I am. Everyone knows that I love a good bar, so My Bar felt a perfect place to kick off the new record!! Welcome to the Block Party Baby!!!!” 

The Welcome To The Block Party album, which includes a collaboration with singer-songwriter Hillary Lindsey, is set for release on February 11 and is available for pre-order now.

With an honest and upfront approach, country singer-songwriter from North Carolina, who now calls Nashville home, caught the attention of millions thanks to the popular social media app TikTok. She has since opened shows for the Chicks, Lady A, Brad Paisley, Jon Pardi, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan among others.
