Leah Mason “Klepto”


Nashville-based pop singer and songwriter Leah Mason reveals her new single, “Klepto,” out on all streaming platforms.

“Klepto” follows the release of “YOUR BOYFRIEND SUCKS,” an empowering anthem that introduced listeners to Leah Mason’s new pop era. Marrying her penchant for introspective storytelling with catchy melodies and uptempo, alt-pop production, “Klepto” is further proof that Leah has found her place in pop.

Leah’s songs capture the essence of what it means to be a twenty-something woman in today’s world. Diving into themes like heartbreak, friendship breakups, love, loss, and everything in-between, she fearlessly explores the highs and lows of young adulthood with a playful yet unflinchingly honest touch.

Speaking on the relatable experience that inspired “Klepto,” she says, “The song is about this friend I had who I noticed started to take a lot of ‘inspiration’ from me. She would subtly ask me about where my clothes were from, and the next week she’d show up in the same thing I had been wearing. It was flattering at first, but she eventually started messing around with the people in my life, like talking to guys she knew I liked and inviting my friends to hang out without me. It was like she wanted my life. It was so frustrating because it felt like she would try to take everything I told her about. She was a goddamn klepto!”

Hailing from North Carolina and now based in Nashville, Leah Mason’s sound knows no bounds. Her musical journey began at eleven, belting out iconic covers in a classic rock band. When she found her way to Nashville in 2019 to attend Belmont University, she soaked in the city’s diverse music scene and quickly emerged as a rising star in the country-pop world. Her 2023 debut EP, Honeydew & Hennessy, garnered millions of streams and drew comparisons by PEOPLE Magazine to contemporaries like Taylor Swift, Kelsea Ballerini, and Kacey Musgraves.

Breaking away from the familiar, Leah ventured to Sweden last year to create her upcoming album, pushing the boundaries of her artistry and crafting a whole new sound. As Leah readies her latest offering, a collection of meticulously crafted tracks set to release soon, she invites you to join her on this musical journey. “My only hope is that it can inspire someone else as well,” Leah declares, as she continues to redefine pop and make her music accessible to all. Get ready for a whole new chapter in the world of Leah Mason.
