Folk- indie singer Phoebe Bridgers has shared with fans the exiting news that her second studio album ‘Punisher’, will see a release on June 19th via Dead Oceans and along with the announcement has dropped a brand new single from the album, entitled ‘Kyoto’.
In an official statement released by the singer she said: “This song is about impostor syndrome. About being in Japan for the first time, somewhere I’ve always wanted to go, and playing my music to people who want to hear it, feeling like I’m living someone else’s life.”
“I dissociate when bad things happen to me, but also when good things happen. It can feel like I’m performing what I think I’m supposed to be like. I wrote this one as a ballad first, but at that point I was so sick of recording slow songs, it turned into this.”
You can listen to the new single ‘Kyoto’ from Phoebe Bridgers now, below.
The song is a fresh take on folk music with an indie bite and a dreamy pop afterthought which already makes this a stand out song of 2020, and gives us a very exciting idea of what the new album may have in-store for us.
Phoebe Bridgers released her debut alum ‘Stranger In The Alps’ back in 2017 and has planted herself firmly as somebody to watch ever since. The singer is also a member of celebrated Indie- rock bands Boygenius and Better Oblivion Community Centre- the latter a duo with fellow solo artist, Conor Oberst.
