today, we're all Born Hot... Chris Farren's new album is finally here!

October 11, 2019


Forevermore, may October the 11th be known as the day we finally realized we were all Born Hot, and we have Chris Farren to thank for that.

Through all the antics and humor, including his exuberant live show and the wildly creative music videos for “Love Theme From Born Hot” and “Search 4 Me,” Chris Farren has delivered a clear message to his fans and listeners with his sophomore album Born Hot; “I just want people to feel good, like they’re understood or less alone, because that’s what the music I love does for me. I want people to come away feeling like, ‘Oh good—I’m not the only one who feels like this.’”

Born Hot is available everywhere today via Polyvinyl Record Co. You can buy physical copies and merch here, or you can stream it wherever you want to stream it here.

Chris will embark on a headlining tour in support of Born Hot later this winter with support from Retirement Party and Macseal. All tickets are on sale now.

Born Hot marks a clear transformation for Farren; although he’s still searching for the same answers to questions he’s asked for years (“why do I feel out of place in my own outer space?”), Born Hot ultimately nudges the listener towards a greater self-acceptance––or, at the very least, a more pronounced patience with their own messy feelings. Recorded on his own in his L.A. home, Born Hot finds Farren putting his inventive spin on classic power-pop, with flashes of folk, punk, and even ‘50s doo-wop.

To launch Born Hot into the world, a billboard featuring a crudely-drawn self portrait of Chris Farren adorned the top of a building on one of the busiest streets in Los Angeles. In giant letters read a phone number: 1-810-BORN-HOT. It was a tongue-in-cheek approach to announcing the upcoming release, as well as giving fans a preview of the album’s first single in lieu of hold music. It’s this sensitive-goofball dichotomy that has become Chris’ signature, extending into his live show and just about everything else, too.


But elsewhere on Born Hot, Farren shifts from exacting introspection to more outward reflection, exploring life-changing matters with an undeniable sincerity. “In my lyrics there’s so much self-examination that teeters on self-loathing, and I like to juxtapose that with an aesthetic that’s completely the opposite,” Farren explains. “It’s a defense mechanism, because I feel embarrassed talking about my feelings so very plainly, but at the same time I also just find the idea of having that much self-confidence really funny.”
