We’ve been blessed with a snippet from her upcoming album Masochism
Since 2013, we’ve been waiting (not-so) patiently for the follow-up to Sky Ferreira’s debut Night Time, My Time. After teasing us with new single “Downhill Lullaby” back in March, the singer is back with another track from her upcoming album Masochism.
Ferreira premiered new song “Descending” at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival on Friday (July 19), and told fans it would be coming out “very soon”. Suffering technical difficulties throughout her set, Ferreira reportedly restarted the song a few times before switching to perform her hit “Everything Is Embarrassing”.
Dressed in a black jacket and yellow slip dress, the musician looked effortlessly cool, and elegantly powered through her performance despite it being marred by sound issues.
Pitchfork Music Festival faced further trouble over the weekend, being forced to evacuate on Saturday night due to dangerous weather conditions – though it quickly reopened in the early hours of Sunday.
Earlier this month, Ferreira took to social media to call out gaslighting in the music industry. The singer wrote in an Instagram Story: “I signed contracts when I was 15 and I’m still paying the consequences for it. Every contract I have ever signed has always been set up to take advantage of me/my work in some way. I have been mentally abused countless times. Gaslighting is a go-to tactic. Suffering isn’t currency for having the opportunity to do what you love for a living.”
The artist previously detailed logistical issues with her much-anticipated second album Masochism. Though an official date is still TBC, the record is due to drop later this year. In the meantime, watch the singer debut “Descending”.
