HITS Daily Double


Mercury/Republic's Noah Kahan has launched a new mental health initiative, The Busyhead Project, named after his 2019 debut album. The organization aims to increase mental health awareness, amplify discussion and democratize resources.

Its initial goal is to raise $1m. Kahan plans to donate a portion of every ticket sold from his upcoming Stick Season Tour. More than $325k has already been raised.

Kahan, who struggled with his own mental health growing up, explained, "We wanted to find a bigger way to reduce stigma and provide resources to people who are struggling. So my incredible management team and many other wonderful partners and I got together to create an initiative. I’ve been given so many opportunities, and it really is all for nothing if I don’t try and give back to the community that has supported me. If I can help anyone get through their struggles, it will be the proudest achievement of my career."

The Busyhead Project will benefit Bring Change to Mind, Jack.org, the Oasis Center, Project Venture, the Rural Behavioral Health Institute and Upper Valley Haven. For more information, click here.

In the meantime, catch Kahan on the road and look out for Stick Season (We’ll All Be Here Forever), out 6/9 on Mercury Records/Republic. The project is the follow-up to 2022's Stick Season.
