Kinstler Recently Teased an Upcoming EP
Kinstler placed third on American Idol Season 19 last year. As part of her time on the show, she released the single “Love Someone.” Since then, Kinstler has released two more singles — “Breaking Myself” and “Pray for You.”
Although Kinstler frequently posts song covers on social media, fans have been wanting to hear more original music from her. So earlier this month, Kinstler teased a snippet of a new song, saying it’s from her “upcoming EP.”
In the clip, she sings, “Pictures I painted in my mind / No, they were never mine / Just funhouse depictions from the outside / Crazy, I was my own enemy / The monster beneath my bed / Turns out it was just me / Luckily, illusions always die.”
Kinstler didn’t mention the title of the song, or when fans can expect to hear her EP. But they can look forward to hearing “Leo” very soon.
