The Blonde & Pink Albums is a double album set and the fourth studio album by American drag queen and singer-songwriter Trixie Mattel. The album includes collaborations with Shakey Graves and Michelle Branch.
Inspired by Trixie Mattel's fascination with duality, specifically the juxtaposition of her glamorous, serious side with her fun-loving, carefree side, The Blonde & Pink Albums ushers in a new sonic era for the beloved chart-topping folk turned plugged-in alt rock superstar.
Prior to the release of The Blonde & Pink Albums, fans were teased with the tracks “Hello Hello” and follow-up single “This Town,” a heart aching collaboration with Shakey Graves. The album also finds Mattel stripping down the iconic Go-Go’s’ classic “Vacation” to its haunting, melancholic center, and working with her longtime musical idol Michelle Branch, embracing the dynamic power of writing sugary rock tracks with unexpectedly dark origins.
The Blonde & Pink Albums showcases the musical evolution of an artist who has not only broken down boundaries within the music world, but also the mainstream pop culture universe.
Trixie recently partnered with Fender, worked with Integrity Toys to release the “Trixie” doll, was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for her One Night Only comedy special, announced a second book with her comedic partner Katya, and appeared as one of the judges for the hit Paramount+ Queen Of The Universe singing competition alongside Michelle Visage, Leona Lewis and Vanessa Williams. These accomplishments alone showcase an artist who has not only a near-limitless arsenal of talents, but an unshakeable ambition to take over the world.
The RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars winner’s past musical releases have been praised by NPR, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Consequence, NME, Paper, Nylon, and more. The drag legend has also blossomed within the worlds of cosmetics, writing (Trixie And Katya's Guide To Modern Womanhood was a NY Times Best-Seller), podcasting (The Bald And The Beautiful is a Queerty Award-winner), television (her forthcoming Trixie Motel renovation show is currently in production for a 2022 season via Discovery+), and live performance (she is currently on the road as part of the Trixie and Katya Live tour).
