SYDNEY SPRAGUE RELEASES NEW SINGLE "STEVE" AND ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM DUE OUT ON FEBRUARY 26, 2021 ON RUDE RECORDS
OCTOBER 23, 2020 – PHOENIX, AZ – Sydney Sprague has released her new song and music video for “steve” out today. The 28-year-old, who recently signed to Rude Records, carries the same fire, creativity, and wit of her 90’s pop idols, combined with her familiar-yet-surprising hooks and hard-hitting, topical lyrics.
“The true story of Steve is me getting fed up with my whole life and starting over,” explains Sydney on the song. “I was stuck in a dead-end job, surrounded by toxic friends and a failing relationship, living in an apartment I hated. I wrote this song at my breaking point, when I was finally like, enough, and I cut all of the bad out of my life.”
Fans can also check out the song and acoustic video for “i refuse to die”, which was released last week. While the song was written before the nightmare that is 2020, Sydney could feel the negative energy looming and this song was written as a manifestation. The previous year felt too good to be true and the suspicion and paranoia at the onslaught of something terrible coming was bound to happen. “This song is a desperate wish for good luck,” explains Sydney. “but looking around at the world it feels like it didn’t work.”
Sprague also announced her new album, "maybe i will see you at the end of the world", due out February 26, 2021 on Rude Records.
Sprague knew exactly who she wanted to produce her next record: Sam Rosson at Hall of Justice (Seattle, WA). “I met Sam through my friend Danielle Durack. He did her last two records, which I am obsessed with!” she coos, daydreaming of the days when Death Cab for Cutie recorded music in the same space.
The album creates a world of Sprague’s own creation: Every detail, down to the apocalyptic artwork, was deliberately painted so that the disparate parts become most vibrant when viewed as a whole. Though not birthed in 2020’s quarantine, the album goes a long way towards helping listeners deal with our new reality.
That's because Sprague can only be authentic: “maybe i will see you at the end of the world is my bucket list all checked off. It was my life goal to make this album at this studio with these people, and now that it’s done, and in your hands/ears - I can breathe easy. Thank you for listening.”
Her debut LP, "maybe i will see you at the end of the world" will be released through Rude Records on February 26, 2021.
