Samia will release new album ‘HONEY’ on January 27th.
The new 11 track record was crafted at North Carolina studio Betty’s, with Caleb Wright assisting on production – the same team that built Samia’s 2020 breakthrough record ‘The Baby’.
Set to join Maggie Rogers’ UK tour next month – which includes a night at London’s Alexandra Palace – she’s just confirmed plans for the incoming LP release.
Out on January 27th, new album ‘HONEY’ is about “learning to see the love around you.”
“Sometimes the only thing I can be certain of is the way it feels. Even when I zoom all the way out, the little things matter the most. I was trying to imagine looking back at the end of life and what I’d have to say about it right now. This is a little bit of it. Telling stories, making amends, trying to show people I love them. It’s a community record – I made it with Caleb Wright and our friends in the woods in North Carolina.”
‘Kill Her Freak Out’ is the first sign of her incoming album, and it draws on an intensely personal place. The sound of someone baring their soul, the terrific lyrical performance is matched to that emphatic vocal. She comments…
“I wrote ‘Kill Her Freak Out’ at my loneliest and most delusional. I’d been quieting my true feelings for fear that someone would leave. The chorus is a reaction to constantly downplaying the emotions that felt wrong; it was cathartic to say the opposite of what I’d been saying for so long to this person I was trying to impress. I didn’t want to kill anyone, obviously, I just wanted to yell. It sort of marks the end of The Baby’s story.”
Lucas Hedges directs the video – tune in now.
