EARLIER // JANUARY 31:
Sky Ferreira is one step closer to releasing her new LP.
Sky first announced her forthcoming album titled Masochism back in 2015, but for one reason or another it hasn't dropped. Whether that's due to creative differences internally is unknown, but it appears she has a newly-inked deal with Capitol Records to iron out some of the kinks. She announced the partnership on Instagram today (Jan. 31).
"glue yr wigs," she wrote.
Nearly a year ago, Sky said the new record was inspired by a dark period on the road. “I started writing the lyrics two years ago when I was touring, and that’s when the name came to me,” she said. “The way I look at it, it’s about going from one thing to another. I’ve learned a lot about myself and my own self-value. Before, in order to feel good about anything there had to be some kind of struggle, a painful way to get to it, otherwise I felt I didn’t really deserve it. Which is a really fucked up way of thinking.”
Masochism, which follows 2013’s Night Time, My Time could feature collaborations with Mike Dean (Kanye West, Travis Scott), Night Time producer Ariel Rechtshaid and Rahki (Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott). “It’s more like The Knife or Fever Ray in terms of the production,” she previously told BEAT magazine.
In 2014, Sky told Billboard her sophomore album would sound "heavier" and less electronic. "It’s going to be a blend of everything.”
