Samia has announced details of new album Honey. The follow-up to 2020's The Baby is out on January 27 via Grand Jury with today's announcement accompanied by a video for lead single "Kill Her Freak Out." The video stars Samia alongside love interest Lucas Hedges, the Oscar-nominated star of movies such as Manchester By The Sea, Waves, and Honey Boy. Check it out below.
In a statement, Samia says: “I wrote ‘Kill Her Freak Out’ at my loneliest and most delusional. I’d been quieting my true feelings for fear that someone would leave. The chorus is a reaction to constantly downplaying the emotions that felt wrong; it was cathartic to say the opposite of what I’d been saying for so long to this person I was trying to impress. I didn’t want to kill anyone, obviously, I just wanted to yell. It sort of marks the end of The Baby’s story.”
Speaking about the upcoming album, she adds: “This record is about learning to see the love around you. Sometimes the only thing I can be certain of is the way it feels. Even when I zoom all the way out, the little things matter the most. I was trying to imagine looking back at the end of life and what I'd have to say about it right now. This is a little bit of it. Telling stories, making amends, trying to show people I love them. It's a community record - I made it with Caleb Wright and our friends in the woods in North Carolina.”
Following the release of Honey Samia will embark on a headline North American tour in early 2023. The shows begin in Asheville, NC on February 6 and include dates at Brooklyn Steel and LA's Fonda Theater. See below for venue and date details.
