Los Angeles, CA – September 15, 2023 – Emmy Award winner and acclaimed multi-platinum singer/songwriter Andy Grammer unveils an uplifting and upbeat new single entitled “Expensive” [feat. Pentatonix] today via Giant Soul/S-Curve/Hollywood Records.
It marks the first official collaboration between longtime friends Andy Grammer and 3x GRAMMY Award-winning multiplatinum a cappella phenomenon Pentatonix. He just recently spoke at the group’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony—and yet, little did the world know, this anthem was on the way! Between the “cha-ching” sound of a cash register, finger-snaps, and neon synths, the track showcases some of Grammer’s most dynamic vocals as he locks into a hypnotic harmony with the quintet. It all culminates on the chantable chorus, “You make me feel…Ex-pensive, oh when you pay me attention.”
Up next, Grammer will hit the road on a massive North American tour. It kicks off on “Global Mental Health Day” on October 10 in Burlington, VT at The Flynn, visits major markets coast-to-coast, and concludes on November 4 in Ivins, UT at Tuacahn Amphitheatre. The tour will benefit partners such as To Write Love On Her Arms and Feeding America. Check out the full confirmed itinerary below.
