Sky Ferreira Gives New ‘Masochism’ Update: “I Refuse To Put Out Something That Isn’t Honest”
You may have had a bit of booze in your system on New Year’s Eve, and so you can be forgiven for blinking and missing Sky Ferreira‘s latest update on her oft-delayed second album. Following some bumpy label drama last summer and more than a few setbacks with getting music from Sky’s sophomore set Masochism (including yet-to-be-released single “Guardian”) finalized, she chose once more to speak out to fans via Instagram about the state of her new material.
Ferreira gave some pearls of wisdom about life in general and being creative on New Year’s Eve, while adding the following:
I also know I’ve been really vague about my music so I appreciate the patience from some of you. I’ve been working on it the whole time & in 2016 you will hear it.I refuse to put out something that isn’t honest. It’s not something that I can force out. If I was to do it any sooner I either would have been compromising myself & anyone listening. I would have had to put out music that wasn’t true or a message I would not want to put out into the universe. As personal as my music is…the thing that lasts longer than I ever will is my actual “work”. I get the rare opportunity to have people listen & connect to it.I personally think with that comes a responsibility of making something that’s still true to me but still can somehow make someone feel better or less lonely. I can’t do that lying through my teeth.Needs to be the pretty/ugly/everything/nothing. For me, music (as a listener) was the most consistent & personal thing in my life that has helped me or healed me in every situation,to some capacity.
Sky’s debut album Night Time, My Time, itself delayed by several years, was a critically acclaimed affair that topped Idolator’s Best Albums Of 2013 roundup. Here’s hoping her follow-up proves to be just as much worth the wait.
