Kate Hudson has unveiled the artwork and tracklist for her new album, ‘Glorious.’ 

More than two decades ago, Kate Hudson took on the role in “Almost Famous” but is now ready to release her music.

The caption on her Instagram post wrote,”I have been waiting so long to finally say this… My album, Glorious will be out May 17 ✨ You can listen to the first track, “Gonna Find Out,” now!!! Stay tuned for more fun announcements. Can’t wait to share all this music with you.”

“I would die without music,” she told The Associated Press from Los Angeles. “I know what it feels like to sit in your room, put on an album, and dream. It can completely change the trajectory of your life.”

On May 17, the debut album “Glorious” is set to release alongside close collaborators Linda Perry, Johan Carlsson, and her fiance Danny Fujikawa, spanning folk, rock and synth, soulful ballads and big pop songs. “My influences move,” she says. “I didn’t want to be pigeonholed into a genre.”

According to an interview with AP, the star has been writing music since she was a teenager. Yet, the pandemic brought up the question for the star to continue writing and pursue an album professionally.


‘What is the next half of my life going to look like in terms of my connection to the arts?’ One thing that kept circulating for me was that if I didn’t make an album, it would be a great regret,” she says.

And so, she gave into the process.

“I wanted to be an open channel,” she says. “I didn’t want to overthink anything.”

Writing 26 songs, the star narrowed it down to 12 that made the final track list. Songs are self reflections on her life including Live Forever,” which considers motherhood and watching your adult children leave home, or “Never Made a Moment,” about the end of a relationship and learning to survive without that person.

The track “Glorious” is as she says ’embodies the album.  It’s about a life well loved — even in its challenges, it is glorious.”

The star is hoping that the new music resonates with audiences alike.


“If there’s just like one person out there that takes the album, and then turns it on, closes their eyes and like, feels something shift in them, then I feel like I’ve achieved success,” she says.

“Or they get in their car, put their windows down and turn up a song really loud and just, like, feel great for a moment. That to me is why I want to make music. If we can get a guitar solo that, like, makes somebody feel explosive in their body, then I feel like I’ve achieved success,” she says, smiling. “It’s really that simple for me.”
