Is Sky Ferreira’s ‘Masochism’ LP Finally Ready?
Sky Ferreira has been chipping away at her sophomore LP since 2014 and has no intention of releasing it until she’s good and ready. The time might have finally come, however, if her latest Instagram post is any indication. The 24-year-old dropped by Capitol Records this morning (January 31) and posted a pic with the caption: “Glue yr wigs.” It’s not exactly an official announcement, but you have to take what you can get from the “Everything Is Embarrassing” singer. And this development, combined with other clues, points to an semi-imminent release.
So what can we expect from the album? “It’s more like The Knife or Fever Ray in terms of the production,” Sky told BEAT magazine way back in November, 2015. To capture that sound, she has worked with Mike Dean (Kanye West’s righthand man & producer of Beyonce’s “Love Drought”), Rahki and long-time collaborator Ariel Rechtshaid, who helped shape the sound of Night Time, My Time. It also looks like the alt-pop diva already has a video in the can given this still from September. Hopefully, 2017 is Sky’s year.
