Melanie Martinez teased a new chapter of her artistic journey with the debut single "Death", and now she unveils the eerie second track from her highly anticipated album Portals, "Void". Explore exclusive lyrics, audio samples and video below for an immersive experience.

Multi-talented singer, songwriter and filmmaker Melanie Martinez has finally released her first full-length record in four years after releasing the two billion streaming RIAA Gold-certified second album K-12.


Melanie Martinez's sophomore album, K-12, showcases her unique blend of low-key hip-hop with soulful pop and indie-leaning electro. Throughout the record, Melanie Martinez writes lyrics rich with metaphor that reflect her struggle to find acceptance within friendships, in the physical world and romantically. Through these metaphors she introduces Cry Baby as a young woman struggling with various traumas and insecurities.

As an extension of her musical talents, Martinez also created and directed a mini-movie to accompany the album's songs. These films illustrated the themes and characters explored in the music, providing fans with insight into Cry Baby's struggles.

The second single from her 2023 studio album, Portals, is "Void". Released two days after "Death", another track from the album that explores a new phase in her life and artistic pursuits, it was initially teased alongside its cover art and release date on February 22nd. Surprisingly enough, the song did surprisingly well upon its release despite not appearing on Billboard Hot 100 charts. Perhaps more significantly though, its title may hold more significance than initially apparent.


At least, that was my understanding! After that I decided not to bother. It just so happens that there's another project in mind and decided to tackle my messier clothes next. Audio
