The album, which is out in August, is described as "a puzzle" by Smith

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith has shared details of a new album, called Let's Turn It Into Sound.

Spanning 12 tracks, the album has been described in a statement by Smith as "a puzzle," who added: "[It] is a symbol of receiving a compound of a ton of feelings from going out into a situation, and the song titles are instructions to breaking apart the feelings and understanding them." Above, you can watch a video for the album's lead cut, 'Is It Me Or Is It You?', for which Smith's movements were tracked in a motion capture suit.

Speaking about the video, Smith said: "It gave me an opportunity to further embody the vocal entity I created for this album. This song is about breaking free from others' perceptions of you and playing with the line between what is yours and what is being projected onto you. Sometimes we project pain onto others and vice versa – I wanted to play with that in the lyrics and keep in theme with playing with sound/phonetics."

Ghostly International will release Let's Turn It Into Sound on August 26, 2022.
