Sophie Allison shared Sometimes, Forever, her third studio LP as Soccer Mommy, in late June. Today, she’s returned with two new versions of the record’s lead single, “Shotgun” — a remix by Miami electro-pop duo Magdalena Bay and a “slowed and reverbed” edit. The latter rework is self-explanatory, but Mag Bay’s rendition is an entirely new take: Mica Tenenbaum and Matthew Lewin bring their bubblegum sensibilities to Allison’s lovelorn power ballad, exposing its latent dance floor potential.
The reimagined “Shotgun” versions arrive in advance of two special Soccer Mommy performances next week — at Los Angeles’ GRAMMY Museum Monday evening and on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night (August 23 and 24) — and the September 23 release of Mercurial World Deluxe, an extended version of Magdalena Bay’s October 2021 debut album. Listen to both of the new edits below, and check out Allison’s conversation with our Editorial Director Alex Robert Ross on the 52nd episode of The FADER Interview.
