Sky Ferreira on New Album: “I Am Planning on Making Something and Putting Out Something Soon”

The multi-talented Sky Ferreira’s debut record Night Time My Time was released in 2013, and fans have been anxiously awaiting the follow-up for four years now. In 2015, she played a new song called “Guardian” live, and she announced the new record would be titled Masochism. There have been periodic but ultimately unfulfilled teases since then—Feb. 2016, Sept. 2016, Jan. 2017—but the album has not yet materialized. Early this morning on Instagram, she shared another update:

“I was genuinely stuck at the mercy of other people before (for almost years at this point). No matter how hard I tried, it was beyond me. I couldn’t say anything because of the possibility that it would make things worse,” the note reads in part.

It predictably seems industry politics may have been at play in delaying Ferreira’s follow-up album, but she remains positive.

“For the first time in a very long time I have a support system to help me (music wise). It’s only up from here. I’m starting to be in a good place creatively/overall & I’m very excited to put out new stuff & I can’t promise that you’ll like it ~~everyone is different~~BUT I can promise that anything I put out myself is & will be whole hearted & 100000000 dedication.”

I have been very quiet about what’s going on with my music for a few reasons. Mostly it’s because I’ve been working on it. I have been working on several other projects. I’m very excited about it all. I was genuinely stuck at the mercy of other people before (for almost years at this point).No matter how hard I tried,it was beyond me.I couldn’t say anything because of the possibility that it would make things worse. Being silent or “politically correct” wasn’t much help either. It felt way worse tbh. It has been genuine tasking on my soul & so frustrating. I stuck to my guns & that makes the process a lot longer than you would expect it to. There are so many factors to it all that would be silly to get into. I didn’t wait this long to put out something that meets the bare minimum for some.GOD BLESS a majority of those people are now out of my way & those problems are being fixed. For the first time in a very long time I have a support system to help me (music wise). It’s only up from here. I’m starting to be in a good place creatively/overall & I’m very excited to put out new stuff & I can’t promise that you’ll like it ~~everyone is different~~BUT I can promise that anything I put out myself is & will be whole hearted & 100000000 dedication. I am planning on making something and putting out something soon. 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙 xoxoxoxoxxx ****Also I gotta point out something: I don’t know why this happens every time I make a record after a decade (yoinks) of doing this because…I MAKE POP MUSIC?!?? It’s not THAT complicated?

For now, seeing as there’s no other details or release date for album two, we can relive Ferreira’s recent appearance at the Roadhouse on Twin Peaks and listen to her on the Baby Driver soundtrack.
